Feebies...

It's been another busy week hasn't it? I am nearly done for Christmas now, just need to get my veggies and tidy the house up a bit. I have to work on Christmas Eve until midday, and then it will be chaos until after Christmas dinner here.
I have managed to have a go at the Daring Cardmaker's challenge this week;
Now, on to this weeks dare. Christmas is an expensive time of year (although every day of the year can be potentially expensive to us Crafters ! ;) Anyway, we thought it would be a good idea to run a dare that was 'inexpensive'..This week, we the DCM team, would like you to design a card using a magazine 'freebie' . Either a craft magazine freebie, or indeed any other magazine freebie, papers, embellishments, tools, etc. anything really, as long as it came from a magazine.


I have to say that I don't usually keep my magazine freebies( I tend to give them all to my neighbours daughter) but occasionally I will keep the odd pack of ribbon. I need to make quite a few cards to replenish my card box as it is quite empty, and you never know when you may need a card! So over Christmas I intend to make a few birthday cards up. I have started with this very simple card, using some free ric rac from Papercraft Inspirations magazine(Easter edition). I used my whale of a punch for the green flower and hand cut the pink one around it. I added a bit of doodling and another freebie - the flower centre is a zoomz ( I was sent 3 packs of these from the lovely Julie and Crissi from Artygirlz). These zoomz are completely new to me, but are really fabby, you can stick them to your project with a dollop of glossy accents. And there are hundreds in a pack!
I made this one as well but not for the dare.



I don't think I will have much time now before Christmas to blog so to anyone who visits and to all my fabby blogmates and forum buddies out there - Have a very Merry Christmas!!!!!!
