Daring Cardmakers ~ The house that Jack built challenge!

Hi, good morning, well can you believe it! It's Friday, the Olympic's offically start today, so wish I could go! the Daring Cardmakers have got another fantastic dare to share with you today & I've woken up to blue skies... and DS1 is off to summer school all day today! Shame I've also woken up to a sore throat!!

This week it's the turn of our lovely Kathy over at Kathy's Waffle to pick our latest dare.. The house that Jack built!

 You can read the whole rhyme HERE if you want to - it's far too long to copy here, but really it's just a nice title for a challenge that's all about Houses - or the walls, roof, doors, windows etc that you need to build a house.  Your card could show a whole house or just some of those - maybe just a door, or a window...it's up to you.  Just have fun and get creative
We're looking forward to seeing what you make, so please come and let us know where we can see your creations

 Stamps used: Old Timey Frog and LM Building Blocks

I made this card for a very dear friend and she loved it! It's a difficult time for her at the moment and also it was her birthday so I just wanted to let her know.. the road to a friend's house is never long :o) I am looking forward to meeting up with her sometime soon and getting inky, this lady is the queen of inkyness ♥ She is also a very talented artist so I couldn't resist using her house stamps for her card :o))

Isn't the frog cute! He was just perfect for my card & I knew he would raise a smile, and he did!

Hope you can join out latest dare over at the Daring Cardmakers.

Wishing everyone a perfect day and a wonderful weekend. Gez. oxox
