Daring Card Makers.............

.........Just Bex Forum and Di Hickman I managed three challenges this morning as it is my daughter's birthday tomorrow and I hadn't made her cards. First we have the DCM dare and this week it's Lythan's turn to set the dare.
My theme this week is
I am woman
As its coming up to Mothers day in the UK here’s a chance to make a card that celebrates women and girls . So I’d like to see a card with at least one feminine image on it . And that's it for rules really.Apart from this one.
And it is sneaky.
No Tildas, Sugar Nellies or Bellas please. I love them all. But there are loads of great challenges out there using them so for this challenge you can give them a well earned rest.
I didn't find this bit too hard because I don't have any Tildas or Bellas! Anyway, here is my card

Meet Henrietta! I think she is brill, she is one of the new kits from Pink Petticoat. The papers are Pink Petticoat too. Her bum, bow and heart are paper pieced and I painted her first with silver pearlescent paint. Flowers and ribbon are both Prima and she was finished off with a couple of diamantes.
My next card is for the Friday night challenge on the Just Bex Forum posted by Nicky.
Get Girly
This is a weekend for celebrating women, so we're giving you this challenge set by Lisa (Funky Fairy), and we're asking you to.....get girly! Let's see all your 'girly' cards, the girlier the better . and I came up with this one
The image is also a new one from Pink Petticoat Again this was painted with my paints from The Works and I 'coloured' the bubbles with Stickles Stardust glitter glue. I added a couple of diamantes as bubbles.
Finally the card I made from hubby and I. I used Di Hickman's latest template for this card. She loves Forever Friends and this die cut was sent to my by a friend as a RAK. Perfect timing Sheilagh, thank you. He is really cute but I'm not very good with faces :(
Papers are Shabby Chic by Junkitz (I think), ric rac is a page frill by Doodlebug and I think the greeting is by Lettraset.
Well, it's March already which means loads of birthdays in our family, including my eldest daughter and an uncle tomorrow, my nephew's on Monday and mine next week (but I think I will cancel it this year cos I'm too old!!)
We had a weekend away last week and we went to Perth (DH's choice as neither of us had been :0) Not exactly my idea of a romantic weekend away. The service in the hotel was diabolical too so we shan't return ;)
I'm still very busy with work, which is why I haven't got very much to show at the moment. I also finished my first magazine commission this week and sent it off. Fingers crossed now that they find it good enough to publish.
I have been tagged twice in the past couple of weeks so I will now disappear to the blogs and grovel, then come back with the tags. I must also go and get dressed :)
Thanks for looking and again to all the lovely people who leave comments - I'm really missing blog hopping again. Message to self......make half an hour before bed and visit blogging buddies.

Crikey, you've been busy! Lots of lovely stuff - Henrietta looks fab in her bloomers and I think the face on the little teddy looks just great. Love the extra diamonte bubbles on the bath card!
