Susan's Saga

This week at DCM the challenge is from Rhi: 'Everything we buy has packaging, some of it excessive, some of it beautifully designed. Tags, labels, stickers... all sorts of bits and bobs that we can recycle onto cards.

I dare you to make a card using a tag, label, sticker or anything else you can find, thats from packaging and would normally end up in the bin. Of course you can ink it, change it, distress it and add anything else you like!

If you're feeling brave, I DOUBLE DARE you to make it a card for a man!'

Well, Rhi, I salvaged some birthday candles this week (since it was my birthday!) and used them to drip wax onto this card. They make pretty balloons I think. The card is for a whole family who spoiled me this week, one of which is a man! So I managed to complete your Dare AND your Double Dare!!

I Double Dare anyone reading this to join is if they have not already done so!
