Some of you may know that I have been without access to most of my paper stash for a couple of months now while I am waiting for a new craft area to be created. But I couldn't let this occasion pass.
"October is our anniversary month - yes the DCM is FOUR years old this month - we're very proud of that achievement and we hope that you've all enjoyed and been inspired by our challenges and the projects we've shown here. We're looking forward to Year 5 already!"
Well "our" very own birthstone is the 10th birthstone dare of the year and it's:
Opal – The October Birthstone
Apologies for the rather naff card. I can't get at my cardstock but managed to dig out my box of paper and card scraps, in fact the opalescent pink paper was one of the first that I bought for card making. The 'flower' came from a birthday present I got last year (yes, I kept it) and the lace was picked off a birthday card I got his year (nothing like a bit of recycling), I sprayed the background with glimmer mists and ink sprays and the little sticky pearls were on my pin board which is hanging in the bedroom at the moment.
So Happy Birthday to DCM, may you go from strength to strength and continue to inspire us to make beautiful cards for many years to come.
