Friday, November 09, 2007


Its all going so quickly! Thanks to everyone who left a comment. Unfortunately this week I wasn't able to get back to anyone but I really read all the messages and really appreciate them all too! Its been hectic with appointments and scans and goodness knows what else!

Well anyways here is today's dare, set by Jo

Getting Corrugated...
Hi all :) This week it is Jo here to set the dare...
I seem to have developed a little bit of a fixation with old cardboard boxes....! My dare this week is to use some corrugated card on your card - it could be corrugated craft card or an old box etc. taken to pieces :) You could make the card blank from it or die cut shapes etc...

And this is my card:

This was fun, I cut out one inch squares from a really old pad I have, the tulip is a sizzix paper sculpting die, stamp is purple onion from a Self Addressed kit!

Don't forget to pop by the dare a look at all the fab cards!

The Joys Of Twin Pregnancy!!..And DCM day!

Well its Friday again! I managed to miss last Friday and only got my dare card up mid week..shame on me!!

I'm now at 27 and a half weeks! In lay mans terms that's about 6 months...and I tell you I'm feeling it! Back ache....sleeplessness....intense breathlessness....exhaustion...sensitivity...wierd numbness in my left leg..feel life a beached whale... oh and of course an octopus beating me up from the inside! I say octopus seeing as there are 4 arms and 4 legs! Its actually kind of weird as there is so much movement compared to when I had Ibrahim!

On the up side DH is being super nice! And I have been baby shopping for a few essentials!!

SO on to today's dare now I have got that out of my system! Today's DCM dare has been set by our own Tracie who is only a couple of weeks behind me so maybe if we ever get together our girls can play together!!

The card for this dare can be any theme but must have an element of hand cutting in it!

I hand cut the card base and the papers, also hand cut the greeting.
Papers are K&CO Amy Butler collection, the pink is a scrap of BG which I ran through a cuttlebug embossing die. The stamp is from a super cheap Papermania set. Prima blooms and some buttons!
