Daring Card Makers Challenge

This week it is me, Tracie, who will be setting the dare for you - I want the focus of your cards to be the girls. It can be any style, any theme, and any recipient - as long as she is female.Can't wait to see all your cards.

This is the first year I can't send a Mother's Day card but I had a light bulb moment last night & decided to make a card for all the lovely Bubbly Funk friends I've made over on the forum & all the wonderful bloggers in Blogland that I love to visit. You have all made this last 12 months easier to bare & I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. XXXX

Thank You Bubblies & Bloggers......

I have made my card using K&Co Baily papers, Papermania brads, a flower from a Bubbly Funk kit. DMC thread for hand stitching (I don't feel quite so guilty now not having time to cross stitch) because I'm still getting to use my threads. :o)

I have included one of the gorgeous downloads from Charmed Crafts as my image.

I have inked & distressed the edges. I think I first saw this idea on Di's blog & fell in love with the idea straight away. I think I must be a shabby princess at heart as I just love this style of card so much & cringe when I see my earlier attempts at card making now.
Although I still claim I'm not really a card maker I have really enjoyed making this card. Especially as it was for you guys.

I hope everyone has a really lovely weekend & if you are celebrating tomorrow...enjoy your special day.
