They have a letter challenge again at DCM:

Take a Letter Ms Jones

Keryn's "Pushing Your Buttons" Dare is still open and there's plenty of room for more, more, more cards with buttons on, but you know we like to throw you something extra to play with in the middle of the week, so here we go:This week we have a sneaky, tricky Little Extra challenge for you
Take a letter, Ms Jones
OK, it's not about monograms, we've already done that.
This time the challenge is to pick one letter and see how many things you can use on your card that begin with that letter.
Now then, you can't choose "P" and just have pink paper, pink brads, pink ink, pink ribbon - oh no no no, that's not the way it works!
You could however, use
A pink card blank, paper, petals, plasma, a monogram P, something Purple, a Flower Pot...
Or how about B?
brads, buttons, birthday, banana (well, you never know..) blue, black, brown, blooms, buckles, bows
Or Sspots, stripes, string, sandals, Stickles, sunshine, stars, snow

I'm crazy for this kind of challenges and here is my attempt.

Not too many B things but here we go:

Button, Balls, Bike, Brown ink-ribbon-pen, Bloom, Broken line

Double dare

Here is the card I made for DCM's challenges:

Who's pushing your buttons!

Hi its Keryn here and it's my turn to set the dare this week.
I know you've all got buttons stashed away somewhere, whether they've been purchased at a cardmaking store or you thriftily snipped them off DH's old shirt. I'd like you to find those buttons and use them somewhere on a card. They can be real buttons, craft shop buttons, die cut buttons, faux buttons or another type of button, surprise us all.

Dash it! That's put me on the spot.....

Now then, maybe you need a little extra challenge in the middle of the week - well, if so, as usual we have something to amuse you....
Dot Dot Dot Dash Dash Dash
We'd like you to make a card featuring dots and dashes, spots and stripes - that's it, a nice easy and fun little theme for you to play with - just make sure you get both spots AND stripes on your card. We'd love to see your dotty, spotty, stripey creations so please come back and leave a message when you're ready to share.....

So I double dared myself ...

(I used paper mache ball (which was flattened with hammer! ) as a button.)

You really need to hop on over to 2J and see what the fuss is all about. Great kits (including a monthly card kit!), friendly and upbeat messageboard, fun challenges and Questions Of The Day, and a rockin' gallery. OH!

DCM "Frill"

This card was made to DCM challenge set by JO:

You must make a card with a frill - it could be some lace, frilly ribbon, a hand cut or decorative scissor edge or a folded paper frill - or what ever you choose to make.... you decide!

I made a card to my mom's B-day; I've bought a pair of red alligator shoes to her and wanted to have a card with same theme. Thanks for nice dare JO!

Here is my card for Dcm challenge "Time":

Hi there, It's me, Kathy, here to dare you this week;
OK, Absolutely anything goes this week as long as it's on the theme of TIME."It's About Time" So you can use clocks, calendars, quotes, sayings, pictures, nursery rhymes, or altered art-type stuff, whatever takes your fancy - just take some time out to play and have some fun; remember, time flies when you're having fun!

This is the B-day card to my friend who loves clocks. I'm making a super size clock to him as a present, you'll see it later...
