A Little bit of Giving

This week is the very talented Asia's first dare over at Daring Cardmakers.

This week's dare has a gorgeous prize very kindly donated by the Ribbon Girl;

and the dare details;

And since we're doing a give away, I would like you to give something back. Remember last year Sue's Post Pals dare? It's a great cause and there are still many kids waiting for cards, so I would like you to create a "Thinking of you" card and send it to one (or all!) the children from this website. Let yourself be inspired by these kids, they all write about colours that they like and their favourite characters. Remember not to use glitter or things that could come off the card easily. If you're not from the UK, you may prefer to send this card to someone you know that may need a little support.

To qualify to enter our draw:
- Link your card back to here
- Add links to your blog for Post Pals, The Ribbon Girl and The Daring Cardmakers
- Enter your card for no more than 5 challenges including this one.

I made this;

and used;

The Girl Paperie and Echo Park papers,
Sarah's Cards pears (secured with diamond glaze)
Papermaze flowers
an old accucut sun die
Adorn It letter stickers
Tim Holtz scallop Sizzix die
Ribbon Girl twine
Hand stitching and inking.

You can check the details of the dare and view the beautiful cards made by the design team here

Details of the Post Pals are here
