Daring Card Makers - World Apple Day!

Hello!  It's Friday and time for a new Daring Card Makers challenge and today is World Apple Day so that is the theme of the challenge!

I've made a simple thank you card using a stitched flat bottomed circle die and a Sizzix apple die (that I've had for years!) plus a sentiment die.


I've scored a border around the edge of the card to give it a bit of depth.  Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

It's time for a new Polkadoodles challenge and the theme as always is

Anything Goes

The DT were challenged to CASE a fellow DT and to say who it is.  I've gone for Andrea - I like her layouts and pins!  And because I recently remembered I had a fair few pins in my stash, it was perfect!


I've used paper from the Itsy Ditsy 6x6 pad plus card from my stash to cut the Bubbleicious frame die.  The image is Earlie Hedgehog Balloon which I've coloured with promarkers and added glitter glue to her balloon.  Ribbons and pins are from my stash.

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Daring Card Makers - October Elemental Inspiration

It's Friday so time for a new Daring Card Makers challenge and the theme, as it is the first Friday of the month, its a Elemental Inspirational challenge.

You need to use at least 3 of the elements - colour counts as one choice.


I've used the colours, plus the pattern (top row third from left), leaves, recycling (the bottle) and text.


The aqua cardstock was a card blank that I cut down and I used a PaperAtsy oak leaf die to cut out of an old Graze box which I've added some waxed cord to tie them together/  I've used the offcuts of the cardblank as a scalloped pattern with offcuts of a printed paper pad underneath.

The gold dew drops are from my stash and the sentiment is an X Cut die, cut from a scrap of chocolate brown card.

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:
