Late with my DCM and BF posts!

On Friday the Daring Cardmakers returned after our week off for Christmas with a challenge to help everyone get at least some of those Thank You cards made.

I had a couple of days between Christmas and my family arriving for New Year to get some cards done - but I just didn't get the time to load them onto my own blog.

This is the one I made for the DCM
And this is another one I made while I was in the groove.

Both using the Cuttlebug "Thank You" embossing folder, the message on the first is also cut with a Cbug die. The little scrap of ribbon came from one of our Christmas crakcers.
The gift and patterned strip of paper on the second card are BG Wassail.

Don't forget to check out the DCM blog and all the fab Darers' cards for more Thank You ideas

Sadly the "groove" only lasted for those two, so I really do need to get back to making the rest of my thank you's - I hate leaving it too late.

New Years Day was also my turn to do the Bubbly Scrmptious emag entry and I managed to get it all done ahead of time so it could be scheduled for publishing at the right time - I knew there was no way I would be around to do all that with a house full.

My project for Thursday's page was a notebook I made for one of our nieces using bits and bobs from the Bubbly Funk shop, including one of the huge chipboard letters that Caroline sells there.
The Bubbly Scrumptious emag is open to all and has loads of info and projects to inspire (hopefully...). You'll find lots of projects made using goodies from each of the monthly Bubbly Funk Kits, lots of projects featuring items from the rest of the shop, recipes, fab fonts and all sorts of other things to inspire and entertain.
You can see the rest of my book and the instructions here but do spend a while browsing the other pages, there's something new nearly every day, and the emag team are all very different in the way we work and the things we make so there should be something for everyone.

Right, I'm now off to brave the outdoors again and fill the birdfeeder up brrrr

Then, with a bit of luck I'll stop procrastinating and do something about those Thank Yous....

Now where did I put that calendar Hubby so kindly gave me?
