I know I know Late blogging

Sorry sorry sorry I know its not Friday and I am 5 days late with my DCM blog but I have been away.

Baby J and I went to my mums down south for a bit of rest and relaxation and "mummying" We had a fab time (despite the earthquake 3 miles away!! IN THE UK!!!) and cant wait till mum comes up to stay here.

Anyhow the card for Daringcardmakers this week was kindly sponsored by Self Addressed kits. The design team over at DCM are soo lucky. The lovely Jenn over at Self-addressed sent us lucky girls some of their scrummy kit contents to create with. We all followed a template and using Self addressed papers made our own designs. Its amazing to see how many different cards come from the same basic template.

I started with one of the lovely blue textured scalloped edge card blanks. They already have a little square aperture cut into it, which is great cos I cant cut straight lines to save my life. Using a piece of the brown and blue flowered paper I trimmed the bottom of the card so that it contrasted with the scallop, as well as placing a piece in the aperture. I cut a border from the stripey paper and placed that across the bottom, and across both sides of the aperture. And hey presto a simple card which thanks to the gorgeous contents of Self-addressed kits are perfect for any occasion.

Why not head on over to the blog to see the interpretations of the design team or visit Self addressed to see their fabby value and gorgeous kits

It's a lovely card.

BTW did you feel the earthquake. My brother was down there with my niece and her family so we rang them to check they were okay and they didn't even know it had happened. My niece lives in Maidstone.
