WRAP IT UP FOR CHRISTMAS - DCM DARE

Thank goodness it's Friday and we have our
weekly dare again! And this week it's extra
special because there's some candy on offer -
RIBBONS, yummy. Here's the dare............

Wrap it in Ribbon for Christmas - here's a little
sweetener: Bea is giving a ribbonful prize to one lucky darer this week. All you need to do is make a be-ribboned Christmas Card especially for the DCM (no doubling up of challenges this week....), post a link to say where we can see it, or send it by email to daringcardmakers@hotmail.co.uk for the gallery and you'll be in with a chance of winning. Couldn't be easier, could it?

The paper and file tab are Daisy D's, the border and pot is BG. I stapled ribbon to a tree shape and added 'decorations' with mini pegs then inked a few edges to finish. This is a great way to use up bits and bobs of ribbon and really easy to do. It's also very tactile.

For someone who doesn't like making Christmas cards I don't seem to be doing too bad this year!

Extra bonus this weekend - as well as getting tickets for the Leeds v Milwall match tomorrow, I just discovered that there is a papercrafts show at the South Leeds Stadium. Guess where I am going on Sunday? That's my weekend taken care of!
