DCM Dare - Friendship - Call NOW!

This week's Daring Card Makers' dare is 'All Things Media':

It's around us no matter which way we turn, and all designed to get our attention. Ads designed by graphic designers who know all the tricks & techniques to draw our eyes to the product in question. You only have to glance at a Newspaper quickly to read headings with 'Shock' titles & 'Clever' puns all designed to make you want to read what the article is all about!

Friendship is by SU, photo stamp by Stampsmith, and call me stamp is by unknown. The 'call now for your free sample' is computer generated.

The colors are off as this has no pink, only darker peaches and browns, but...

This one I have to give 100% credit to Miss Gillian. Her sewing inspired me to open my new machine and play! (can you believe I actually opened it?!) I also stamped on the flower. This is a brilliant idea I wouldn't have thought of myself!

Thanks, Gil. You touch more lives and minds than you could imagine, between your kindness and talent! Bless your cotton socks! ;)

Still stuck on Love...

The heart is made of crumpled cardstock stained in coffee and the background is a pretty, aged rose vellum, but I don't know who makes it. Love stamp by Heidi Swapp. (I just noticed I forgot to cut the ribbon ends shorter before I scanned. ooops. lol)

Just starting to play with my Stamping Bella stamps. This is grumpabella. Since I sure can be a grump, we have a lot in common.

I still do..

I've finally taken the plunge and tried to meet a dare set out by Daring Card Makers. I usually say I should try it, but either run out of time or plain chicken out. I'm not sure it's quite up to the challenge layed out, but it was my attempt.
The dare for this week is:

A Really Romantic Scrapbook Layout - but on a card!

Scrapbookers are challenged to downsize your usual a 12x12 LO onto a teenyweeny one - maximum of 6x6, which can be sent safely through the mail. Cardmakers - you're used to working on a small space, and you know all about the ribbons, brads and other bits and bobs - but can you take on board all the other little touches that are used on a scrapbook page - the titles, the journalling, the photographs etc?
