Just got round to the DCM Friday Challenge, having spent the day at G-Mex . Came back absolutely shattered and laden with bags of fab new stash. There were actually some really good bargains - some Junkitz and Rob & Bob at half price and some divine rub-ons (my favourite at the moment). Saw Dawn, JJ & heavily pregnant Amy, Stephenie Weightman, Wendi Rhodes, Audrey Sibbert, the Glitter Girls - they were all there and, I have to say, were very friendly. Nice to see them IRL. Shame a couple of my faves weren't there though - Craftwork Cards, Blonde Moments (scrummy) and Ideal which I love for cardstock and which I really need. I have decided that my next big 'need' is a QK Silhouette - better start saving!

So, here is the brief for the DCM challenge:

As a reward for all the brain power that went into the Little Extra this week, this is a simple one. From simple LythanWith a cryptic clue.Which, as I discovered to my embarrassment, when I laid it on the team, is only really possible to understand if you live in the UK. And even better, are Welsh.So... a trio of Welsh Barbers means that on your card you need to have 3 die cuts!( Dai is a common Welsh nickname for David and as there are a lot of Dai's around they are known by their jobs so a Welsh barber would be known as Dai Cuts. I'll get my coat.)

I used Sarah Bond backing paper, prima flowers (yes, again!), Melissa Frances sentiment and used my Purple Squeeze to die cut the hearts and the ribbon slider then inked the edges. The mat is Bazzil and I used a Dovecraft border punch - the smallest flower is punched too and is finished off with a silver flower brad.

Off to look at my goodies now!
