...to make a start on the cards I should be presenting to Scrap Lady Ally as part of my contributory share of the cards to be made at our Christmas Card Marathon. This is a public announcement for two reasons: Poor Ally probably thinks I've left town to avoid doing anything and it's not exactly a partnership if you feel on your own, huh. And the other reason is the fault of you WOYWWers. I haven't visited every desk yet, but the majority of those that I have are exhibiting signs of Christmas crafting. 2011 Calendars in some cases! Good grief, I feel battered and bruised by the realisation that I need to get on with it. So take my many words for it; I will.
And meanwhile, here's my entry for the Daring Cardmakers Challenge - I don't know how enlightened you are about me, but I'm part of their DT as a GD this month. News to you? Modesty has prevented me from being too braggy, I must admit. *Grin*
The Challenge is 'Trees' - any variety, any reason or season, we wanna see a tree on your card. This particular card features a tree shape cut out by Mr D....he was all smiley when he saw what I'd done with it - and that makes me smiley! And of course the BG paper ain't shabby! The text reads 'Friendship is a Sheltering Tree' (Coleridge, no less) - I typed it on my portable typewriter which made Miss D very smiley!
Now there are a lot of you out there already making cards with trees on, so join us why don't you?
