Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Morning Folks...it's time for another challenge card and the challenge this week over at Daring Cardmakers is from the lovely Keryn.......

"We'd love to see you making use of all sorts of border treatments; scallops, trims, pleats, or anything else which makes the edges of your papers and cards look special. You could use Border Punches, Die Cutters, Lace, Fancy Trims and that's just for starters - let your imagination live right on the edge this week - or maybe even go right over the edge!"

Scalloped Card...Craftwork Cards
My Mind's Eye..Wild Asparagus 6 x 6 Paper Pad
Hero Arts: Artistic Borders Clear Stamp Set
Martha Stewart...Doily Edge Lace Punch
Ribbon  & Brad from stash
Sentiment: Hero Arts...Share Laughter Clear Stamp Set

And have I made any progress with the new cubbyhole....well the dilemma was how am I going to get rid of this.....far too big to go in the boot of the estate car......
so armed with my safety goggles and a hammer.....I went into demolition mode...boy was it well put together but eventually it was nothing more than loads of planks of wood....and hey a great way to get rid of stress....think of Mr Blogger and you're cooking by gas....then off I went once more to the skip...just the carpet to lift now and then I'm ready to don my painting hat......catch up with you all later.
Hugs Kath xxxxxxx
