Actually, I'm quite pleased with myself!


TWELVE Christmas cards added to my box in one day - it may not seem a huge number, but for me it's LOADS!!!!!

Inspired by Beverley, who regularly joins in with our DCM Dares, I made these cards yesterday using card from an old cereal packet - I cut strips from a Papermania Christmas selection pack, covered the piece of card with them, then chopped them up to make trees and parcels. I've still got loads left but whether I get round to using them is anyone's guess. Maybe I could do some with different colours....Maybe I could see if I can use my sidekick to cut out some more interesting shapes...wonder if that would work? ummmmm.























We're all very excited because our very own Daring Cardmaker Jo Kill is up for Cardmaker of the Year in Simply Cards and Papercraft mag. Check out Jo's blog for more examples of her fantastic cards, and if you'd like to add your vote, well, there's a form on the SC&P website where you can do just that!
