It's Rein (or Rika) here today and my,dare this week is:
"The First Letter"
I'd like you to put things on your card which begin with the first letter of your name.
You can use other things too, but see if you can use at least 3 things that share their initial letter with your own name.
For example my name is Rein so I could use rose, robot, radio, raven...
hmmmm. I managed to come up with Koala, Kangaroo and Kitten - not a great start.
Thanks to my fab Teamies and some ideas from Hubby things eventually started to look a bit more positive. Mind you one of Hubby's favourite ideas was Klaxon, but we won't say any more about that. I also rejected the idea of Knickers - no surprises that it was our lovely Lythan who came up with that one.
Anyway in the end I made a card with Kisses, Knots and Kraft card. Sorry Rein, I just couldn't think of any more to fit on!
Supplies for this card were:
Kraft card base
White card & MS hearts border punch
Papers are from two different sets both by My Little Shoebox
Red satin ribbon, pink & red brads from stash
Letters are cut on the Craft Robo from red gloss card
The little hanging sentiment was just printed via the pc, I handcut the heart shape and punched a red gloss card circle to mat it on and used eyelets and knotted red fibres to attach it to the card
Oh yes, the kisses are mine - made by plastering my lips with loads of lipstick and "kissing" some white card - I did feel silly doing it but it worked really well.
Obviously, there's only one person I could give this card to - my lovely Hubby who tolerates my ever increasing stash collection and doesn't grumble too much at the mess I make or even the state of my desks - which must be really hard for him as he's an "empty desk" sort of person. He has a huge desk too - what's the point of a huge desk if you don't fill it all up with stuff? hehehe
This dare certainly got us thinking - and we hope it'll give all the DCMers a good challenge too - after all that's what it's all about, it was easy it wouldn't be a challenge, would it?
Well, that's our excuse anyway!
If you've not already been there, please pop over to the DCM BLOG and see what the team have come up with using their own initials. We'd really love it if you'd join in too, and have a bit of fun with this one.
