It's eye boggling!


Booooo!


Happy Halloween!

It's Nat here bringing you this week's dare... in honour of today's spooky occasion I thought it would be fun to give a wacky twist to our dare for this week.

Before we get to our theme for this week I first of all wanted to say thanks to everyone who played along with Gez's dare last week! 

We also have some very exciting news - this dare marks our 8th Anniversary, so....

Happy Birthday to Us!

Wow! Where has the time gone? And to celebrate the good news we also have a happy announcement to make that our wonderful Guest Designer Dawn will be joining the Design Team full time - so you'll be getting to see much more of her wonderful projects here on the blog. 

And now, it's on with this week's show.... 

With it being Halloween I wanted a dare that could tie in with this theme, but like many people here in the UK I don't actually send Halloween cards... but there's one fun element I would feature on a Halloween card if I was making one...

 I totally love how those little plastic goggly eyes you can pick up in the kids' crafting section can transform a card into something cute, crazy, or downright hilarious.

I want to see you use goggly eyes - of any size and however many you like - on your cards!

You can go all out with the Halloween look in honour of the occasion or you can go with any theme you like - but you need to feature goggly eyes or some other wacky eyes on your cards. :D

The design team certainly came up trumps with their eye-boggling cards!

Check them out...

Sentimental

Hi everyone, Gez here with a brand NEW dare for you this week.

A BIG Thank You to everyone who played along last week.

I am delighted to be your hostess this week and I would like you to share your favourite quote/sentiment with us but also, why not spice things up and challenge yourself to try something new or refresh an old technique you haven't used in a while.... it could be fun! 

We look forward to seeing your creations...

For The Love Of A Good Book

Hello! Thank you for joining us again this week for a new dare.

With the nights drawing in there is nothing better than cosying up with a good book!
For The Love Of A Good Book
So this week I would like to see a page from an old book used on your card. This can be taken from an old book or if you have a stamp with a script on it you can use that too.

We look forward to seeing all your creations, here is what the design team have created to inspire you

Out of this World

Good Morning out there!

Thanks to everyone who played along with last week's colour combo challenge. We got to see some lovely fresh cards. Weren't those colours great?

It's Svenja here and I'd like to challenge your inspiration and fantasy a little this week. My theme for you is 


Out of this World


I'd like to see some cards that feature characters who simply are out of this world - think angels, demons, ghosts, dragons, wolpertingers, superheroes, unicorns... whatever comes to your mind!

No idea yet? Just have a look at the Design Team's wonderfully varied creations:

Autumnal forest


Thanks for taking part in last week’s challenge and showing us some great ways of making and using stencils.

It’s Miri here and autumn is my favourite season!

If you like it busy and loud all the wine and beer festivals around here are the perfect place to be. If you like it more quiet and relaxed I think that nature, and especially forests, have a lot to offer at the moment.

I want you to be inspired by an
autumnal forest.
You can use autumnal forest colours on your cards or feature anything you can find in a forest like leaves, forest animals, mushrooms, nuts, trees (at least three so that it’s a small forest rather than just a tree :-)) etc.

Go to your nearest forest for some inspiration or have a look at the cards of the Design Team members.
