My turn to dare this week....

Hi all, Jo here to dare you this week :) and I would like to challenge you to make a hero themed card. It could be a card for the Hero in your life or a Superhero themed card....

I chose this dare a). because I have two boys who love to play dress up as super heroes and b). in homage to the wonderfully original programme that is 'Heroes'. I think that you can get it now on telly boxes here - it is fab lol. Actually I do seem to be inspired by all things celluoid, Josh has a middle name totally taken from Mission Impossible and Jared has the honour of being named after that faux Biblical passage in Pulp Fiction....

and I made this....


Destinted to be opened by a certain little hero who is five next week and loves all things guitar...

I used Basic Grey Urban Coutire paper as the background, SEI stickers, papers, frame and brad, hand stitching and doodling (inc the hand written greeting)

The DCM team have made (again!) fantabulous little pieces of hero themed artwork. It is also super fab to have Lynne with us as a Guest Desigener on the team :). They are all here. Looking forward to see all of the wonderful creations that you make.... :)

and of course todays mood just has to be this one...My Unkymood Punkymood (Unkymoods)
