DCM plus 2!

I am still wading through the mound of paper cut offs and made another three cards from them last night. I have vowed to myself to be good now and not buy anything else until the paper mountain has diminished slightly.................erm, a lot! LOL I'm not sure whether I should include PB stamps in that comment as I received a fabby folder yesterday from my friend Jo and there are at least six in there that I need!One of the three cards I made last night fits the Dare
Now, on to this weeks dare (can you believe its Friday once again ?!:) Well, its my turn (Jane) to set the dare this week. Its very simple really (prickly maybe but..:) I want you to design a card to any theme- but I want you to include pins or needles of some sort. Sewing needles, safety pins, dressmakers pins- any type of pin goes !:)

My pin is in the middle of the flower holding the charm onto the card. Paper is the new Sugared by Basic Grey, ribbon from Ribbon Oasis, flowers from Tracey at Creative Treasures and the rest is off my desk. :)I seem to have an awful lot of pink bits left over! This was a quick card commission for a little girl who likes ballet. Pale pink paper is from a Papermania kit (and it is only sold in the kit unfortunately) I decided that I would scallop the outside edge of the paper with my corner rounder and it fell to pieces in my hand so it ended up just being mounted onto pink card! The other piece of card has been Cuttlebugged and the number three was cut by hand.

My final card is just to go in the box. Paper and image are from Pink Petticoat and the greeting is a Papermania rub on.
I am now going to drink my coffee while I have a quick blog hop before everyone else gets up. It seems ages since I last had a nosey round everyone's blogs.
Thanks for looking. xx
