MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR

A very Happy Christmas and prosperous,
healthy New Year to all my blogging friends!

I really want to thank everyone who has visited my blog and left such lovely, encouraging comments for me over the past few months. Also thank you for sharing your work - I love visiting your blogs and you really do inspire me so much.

This is the final DCM Dare before Christmas, and here it is........

'I'm free !!!'
Hello fellow darers !! Friday has come round again, and I expect you are all as busy as us as we fast approach Christmas. So we are going to keep things as nice and easy as we can for you through the next few weeks........firstly, we have decided to give the 'Little Extra' dares a holiday over Christmas/New year because life is just busy enough at the moment- and I can't see many of you getting up on Christmas morning to take up a new dare ! :) So the mid week specials will be back in January, but watch this space there are lots of exciting changes lined up of the 'Little Extra' but we will fill you in on all the details soooooooon. Now, on to this weeks dare. Christmas is an expensive time of year (although every day of the year can be potentially expensive to us Crafters ! ;) Anyway, we thought it would be a good idea to run a dare that was 'inexpensive'..This week, we the DCM team, would like you to design a card using a magazine 'freebie' . Either a craft magazine freebie, or indeed any other magazine freebie, papers, embellishments, tools, etc. anything really, as long as it came from a magazine.'


Papers are from SI Magazine ages ago and the glittery flower is K & Co. I have torn the heart layers and inked the edges in white. I really like the tearing look - it gives it a fabric effect!
I added some rub-on borders, ribbon and stickles to finish off.
