DCM - mid week extra - We've got yr number

We've Got Your Number
Numbers and Fun? Those two words don't often appear in the same sentence, do they?Well, we'd like you to have some fun with numbers and put a numeral on your card - it's as easy as that

I'm not sure if the random numbers on this Jenni Bowlin journaling stars ticket will pass the dare - but it sure is fun & numbers for me ! lol

DCM - Visit to the Haberdashery Department

G'day all, Gillian here, and it's my turn to dare you all this week
Your card can be any theme you like, just as long as it's got something you'd find in a Haberdashery Department on it
Alright then, grab that old sewing basket of yours or raid your sewing machine drawer, have a look at what creative bits are hidding away there....maybe it's buttons, a zip, hook & eye's, ribbons, braids, Dressmaking patterns, tape measures,Pins & Needles, lace, safety pins or embroidery thread....



Here's a BG Phoebe card - I used some special funky trim I found in Bangkok in the Haberdashery dept ! & some Foo fa la buttons .
