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

Woo hoo, a challenge on the day it was published :)) Keryn set the dare today and and here is her brief My dare for this one is the predictable, someone had to do it, theme of Valentines. Although I don't want you to feel you just have to make Valentines Day cards, feel free to make a card fitting any theme you like as long as it has a heart somewhere on it. Stamped hearts, punched hearts, diecut hearts, heart embellishments, cut from patterned paper, whatever, whenever as long as it has the right shape.

I randomly stamped the hearts straight onto my card blank using red chalk ink. The hearts and sentiment stamps are by MSE and I have to admit that having had them in my box for about 2 years, this is the first time they have seen ink!! The large greeting in the middle of the card is from Pink Petticoat and the gingham ribbon is from my stash.

I've also tidied my craft studio this afternoon as I have a client coming this evening ;)

I'm now going to start putting inserts in the cards I've made so far so that I can get them into the shops.

Back soon, thanks for stopping by xx

It’s not often that I manage to do challenges on the day they are posted either Jackie, so I think you have good reason to celebrate.

I really love your card, especially the Love Heart stamps.
Really great!
