Merry Christmas......

And a Happy New Year!!!!

Its a Friday and you know what that means in blogland? Yes its the release of the last dare before Christmas. This time we are asking you to design a New years card using the following recipe
  • 3 Brads or Eyelets

  • 2 Different Patterned Papers

  • A punchie or Die cut

I had a right old palavar trying to get this weeks card uploaded, seems my camera is on its Christmas Break already - First we had no battery power, then no focus, then "internal Memory Error" but finally after threats of being put on Santas Naughty List and being replaced I managed to upload it. Please excuse the dodgy photo, the light this time of year is awful.

Happy New Year

I started this one with a Blank white A6 Size card blank and covered the top portion with a green stripe pattern running vertically and the bottom part with a dotty pattern running vertically (Both papers are from a DCWV Scrapbook in a Kit Stack). I then disguised the join with a yummy blue ribbon from American Crafts. I used three pieces of the same ribbon and made them into tabs and attached them in the top right with light blue Making Memories star shaped brads. Then using Colin, my new Craft Robo (sssshh dont tell Santa I used it) I cut the greeting in light blue and the mat in green from the same DCWV kit as before.

Hope you like it and I hope you all have a fantastic Christmas and get everything you wish for.
