Coy no longer!

The day has arrived when I can reveal what all the shenanigans are - the Daring Cardmakers are here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
NZ Jane was inspired by all the scrap dare sites to set up a card dare blog with some people from NZ and some from the UK (we don't make it easy on ourselves as our time zones hardly meet up!). It is fantastic to be involved. I do feel humble cos I know heaps more talented card mkaers than myself. I think I was chosen for my looks and brains rather than crafting skills (and of course for my naked cleaner...)

Here is a closer look at my card. It is as big as the others in real life - it's jsut we need to get matching settings going!





The papers are BG Lily Kate punched into teeny squares and inked and cut into a heart shape. The quote is from a KI memories friends sheet and you can get similar diamente bling from Carolyn's shop. The pink hearts are from the florist's warehouse up the road from me.

PLEASE visit the blog and tell s what you think!


In a meeting today I was suddenly inspired by a further two friends cards so I might do those before I start on the new fiendish challenge.

Going to my first crop tomorrow. Mighty nervous. And it doesn't help that I have run out of ink on the photo printer today...

The card is brilliant - not sure I'd have had the patience to do all those little squares and I know for sure that no matter how creful I was the lines wouldn't be straight!

Wow, going to a crop - you're so brave, have fun though and try and behave yourself! Remember to take your business card with the new blog addy on (winks)

I can't believe those tiny squares are all cut - when I first looked I thought it was some funky paper with tiny squares - you must have the patience of a saint.

Great card Lythan

Great card and great idea for the cardmakers dares. Looking forward to checking out the new dares...

Lythan your card is gorgeous - and you must have sooo much patience or time or both maybe to do all those squares - the effect is amazing though well done, and how did the crop go?

Hi Lythan, I got to your blog via the new cardmakers challenge site (cos I liked your heart card so much). And as I live in Swansea (well, just outside...between Llanelli and Swansea really) I couldn't help but notice (as I was nosing at your site) that you have kids with Welsh names, you went to a spa by Llanelli, but you say you live near the M25.

Where are yooooooooooo!? LOL
