Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Morning's Monday morning....time for lots of folks to return to the humdrum routine of the working included although I've been working all weekend trying to catch up on lots of crafty jobs but all work and no play makes Jill a real dull I took some time out to join in the fun over at Daring Cardmakers.

The challenge this week is....
which are Violets or Primroses

Kraft Card
overstamped with Hero Arts CG251 - Small Solid Flower inked with Distress Ink...Frayed Burlap
Sentiment Hero Arts CL491 - Made With Love
Flowers: Hero Arts CG290 - 4 Flowers inked with Distress Ink...Mustard Seed
Brads....American Crafts
Fiskars Border Punch: Scalloped Lace
overstamped with Hero Arts S5433 - Large Canvas Stripes inked with Distress Ink...Mustard Seed
Hemp: Simply Create
Button from stash

A real simple card even for me and I am still sitting on the fence on this one.   For all the botanical experts out there....I know I am using a bit of artistic licence with the primroses but I'm sure you will cut me a bit of slack...half close your eyes and pretend.
Dancing On Ice....what can I say....Jason Gardiner is an offensive odious bully and do we really want to see folk like him on what is a family TV show....well done Karen for standing up to him and you deserved more than his half hearted crawling attempt at an apology....what a slime ball.  But that wasn't the only shocker of the night....can't believe that Jen and Sylvan have gone....she is one sexy lady who can skate and oh boy is he serious eye candy.
But I think it's far too early in the morning to be having such thoughts so I will get back to the job in hand and remind you that you only have until midnight tonight to enter The Furry Boy's Give-Away....he will be hopping on tomorrow to announce his winner and no doubt he will have plenty to say for himself as usual.

Edited add: sitting at my desk with a cuppa and it's snowing....HEAVILY....are we going to be marooned again


  1. The card is lovely, I really like the stamping :-)

  2. Morning Kath, Love how you've stamped your background on the kraftcard. I really love using it too. Have a good crafty day. Hugs x ChrisB

  3. I think your card is genius
    have a great day

  4. I was gobsmacked to see Jen & Sylvain go too, I thought it would be Comedy Dave or Johnson for sure.

    Anyway, I love your card (& I don't really do yellow!)

  5. Absolutely loving this card hun, you put the HEROine into Hero Arts for sure. Sxx

  6. Kath your primrose card is spot on! Fresh,bright and spring-like (and I dont watch dancing on ice so can't comment) Mary G x

  7. Love your primrose card, great background stamping.

    Agree with you on the skating on ice issue that Jason is creep. Poor Karen.
    Goes to show how people vote for there favourites even if they can't skate.

  8. Snowing!!!!! oh no.........
    Kath I think the card is lovely - I love yellow and it goes so well with the kraftcard (which I forget to use!)tfs

  9. Hi Kath

    Gorgeous creation.

    I love that bright yellow again your kraft card.

    Scrummy stamps.

    I hope that all is well with you.

    Love Jules xx

  10. I love the card Kath and how you have 'represented' primroses. :) IMHO you are the queen of kraft.
    I have to agree with you re Jason Gardner. I was appalled last night at his rudeness - as usual there was no call for it and how humiliating for Karen who works so hard behind the scenes and is an asset to the show.
    They'll probably keep him in as sadly that sort of incident keeps up the ratings I imagine.

  11. Hi Kath, love the card - the colour combo is not one I would have thought of but it works really well and the primroses are devine. Dancing on Ice - the arrogant and self-opinionated Jason was exceptionally offensive this week - can see ITV receiving lost of complaints about this one. And his attempt at an apology was laughable - someone should vote him off!!! And as for the really odd result - well, I can think of at least 2 couples that should have been where Jen and Vanilla Ice were. However, the silver lining is that we do get to see the devine Danielagain next week. From this I take solace. Elizabeth x

  12. Oops! I meant it was a colour combo I would not have thought of.

  13. Hi Kath
    So glad you managed to find time to play with The Daring Cardmakers this week - especially as your primroses card is such a beauty!
    Hope all is well with you

  14. Great card Kath, love the yellow flowers,just perfect for a dull day like today. Hugs to Buddy. :)

  15. Kath , the card is truly elegant simplicity, a shot of sunshine on this snowy winters day !!!

  25. Hi Kath, Lovely card and I like the yellow with the kraft cardstock. Disappointed with the results last night. Neither of them should have been in the skate off.
