DCM & Think Pink Challenges

OK, this week it's Tanya's turn to set the dare and this time it's a dare with a POINT! A nice sharp point, at that!
This Way!
I want to see arrows on your cards - whether big, small, staright, curly, lots or just one arrow

I managed to combine this with the Think Pink numbers challenge, I have to acknowledge Kathy Black for the idea for this card. It is based on the card she did for one of the Bubbly Funk Kits and for those of us who subscribe, there is the Bubbly Scrumptious blog with lots of inspiration on it. I wanted to use the ribbon which came in the kit - as it has arrows on it - and when I saw Kathy's card I knew that I had to use it for inspiration.

This is another Think Pink numbers card. I used Carol Ann's Studio CD 'Handyman' for the papers and decoupage. The number is shrink plastic which I painted with acrylic paint before shrinking.

I volunteered to make some name badges for the think pink helpers, including pink in the men's badges was considered a challenge, but I really enjoyed it. I am sure they are man enough to wear a bit of pink.

These two cards are for the Sew Nice challenge for the Think Pink sale supporting Breast Cancer Care. I made the little quilt and the hanger and the background is stamped with an elusive images stamp.

The card below was made using a soldering iron! You fuse organza onto Kunin felt and then machine embroider over it. I haven't done any of that for a while, must put it on my list.
