Wow I have finally managed to take part in the Daring Card Makers dare for the week! I have been following the blog for a few months now as my friend Keryn is in their design team and have been thinking "I really must give it a go" and now I have found the time and inspiration to do so.
The dare is "Through the Round Window" creating a card with an aperture (hole in it) Here is my effort.
It is a shaker card filled with coloured hearts and the message stamped in the window is "With Love" (it is obscured by all those hearts!)
Of course I am killing two birds with one stone and I will use this as DH's Valentines card. It is a VERY busy card making time of year for me and I cannot afford to just makes cards for the sake of it :-) Both children, DH and 9 of our friends have birthdays as well as our Wedding Anniversary and Valentines day all in January and February. Not that I am complaining really but some weeks the pressure is on. I could just choose a card from my 'stack' I guess but I really like to make personalised cards if I can.
I really hope that DH doesn't read my blog - I don't even know if he knows about it - lets hope not as what I am about to tell you is top secret. It will be our 10th wedding anniversary this week and I have spent the last two years working on an album of our love including the dates we went on and our wedding day and our kids and loved ones. I am pleased I started so long ago as I am still not quite finished but I am pretty confident of finishing it in time. I'll let you know what he thinks.
Anyway this is getting out of control
