Pop over for a look and feel free to join in.
"The obvious things would be plants etc but really there are lots more things that grow, we look forward to seeing your own interpretations!"
I have been dying to use this gorgeously cute stamp from Little Claires for ages and what a perfect opportunity. The image is coloured with Prismacolour pencils, and I just love the baby elephant.
Dotty paper is Lasting Impressions 'Strawberry Parfait' (what a mouthwatering name!), and the other is DCWV 'Nursery Baby Girl'.
Thanks for visiting and I would love to see your comments.

"Hi, it's Rhi here this week to dare you, and it's...Journalling spots. They're used all the time in scrapbooking where it's extra personal to read someone's words and memories in their own hand. Use a journalling spot, be it stamped, premade, handcut, digital or doodled, to frame your handwritten message on your card. Have a look at the cards we've made, then share your creations by leaving a link, I dare you!"
I used Basic Grey Euphoria papers for this (I hated them at first, but love them now!!), my fave Prima flowers and, of course, the lovely Tilda coloured with Prismacolour pencils. The journalling stamp is Papermania and the brads are Doodlebug Sugar Coated.

The paper consigned to the bottom of my ever-growing pile of papers is the background, but it's perfect for this card, and I added glaze to the sun, which is why it's reflecting at you! The other papers are K&Co Berry Sweet speciality, the grass is a Sizzix die, apples from a punch and the sentiment from Cosmo Cricket Hello Sunshine - available from http://charmedcardsandcrafts.co.uk/ I used 'Back to School Dottie', also from Charmed, and coloured her with Prismacolour pencils.

I am wallowing in the pleasure of finishing school yesterday and have I six whole weeks off work, which means oodles of crafting time and the chance to use some of my new stash, do loads of challenges and be a much better blogger! Oh, the luxury of time.......be back later with more, hopefully.

"You can blame Keryn with her rather lovely cool colours dare last week (great cards all BTW!) for the inspiration for this week. I found that I needed to use a peel off and was quite pleased with the results and that got me thinking of a fiendish dare. At least it is for me (Lythan) who is often disparaging of the much maligned shiny sticker. But actually there are some really nice examples of the genre around now. And also people who can do all sorts of gorgeous things with peel off stickers that I would not have thought of. Are you one of them?
So go on, rummage around in your craft stash and
Make a card with Peel Offs"
Well, I fumbled about at the bottom of a box of unused stash and unearthed these white flower peel offs which I thought I may be able to bring myself to use. Now, I'm not a peel off snob, I have seen people do amazing things with peel offs, but they're just not my cup of tea.......I may have changed my mind though after using these.
Papers are Daisy Bucket, white flower peels offs stuck on Bazzil Bling and hand cut, paper flowers Making Memories, Tilda of course and a touch of glitter glue. Turned out much better than I could have hoped.
