I'm a bit late with one of the DCM challenges, but better late than never eh, LOL? So, I managed to do the GREEN challenge, which was on Friday 13th February. Here is the dare..........

The dare is feeling green. I want to see lots of green on your cards in any shade you like. You could even do a double dare and make a green themed get well card. It's up to you. We can't wait to see what you come up with, and in the meantime here are some cards the DT have made for inspiration.

I really enjoyed making my card for this challenge and enjoyed digging out some old stamps, in fact, the stamps used were my very first purchase when I started stamping. I have no idea where I got them from and haven't seen any like this since. Anyway, here's my take on this challenge.
Another of the challenges that I managed to try was the 'Circle' challenge with DCM announced on Friday 27th February. What I had in mind, compared to what I made, was quite different lol, but I had a bit of fun all the same. Hope you like it. Here's the challenge.......
This week, the title says it all - I want to see lots of circles, you can decide how you use them, whether it be the shape of your card or how you display circular elements within the design and thats it, nice and simple (I hope :-)).
I had fun doing the DCM's, just wish I could make time to do them every week, along with other challenges announced through Bubbly Funk and Bubbly Scrumptious. I guess I will do them as and when, but they are all on my list, hee hee. I'm determined to keep up with the 52Q's, (of which I am 3 weeks behind, lol), together with the Circle Journal on Bubbly Funk. I can't set myself too many projects as I have trouble keeping up with one lol, especially since working, it just doesn't happen!

Oooh, your green one could go on the patchwork theme DCM too,I reckon! Lovely stamp! Love your stacked circles and they look very dramatic on the black!

Two very different cards there both lovely. The green one is very fresh looking and the circle one is like an optical illusion - I keep expecting the circles to rotate. haha
