finally a spare few minutes...

I've been checking out 'Daring Card Makers' for some time now, and finally found a few spare moments to myself (whilst Riley was asleep) to come up with this weeks challenge!
It's my first go - so hopefully it's okay.

This week at DCMs You are being Dared to make a card that is inspired by 'All Things Media'. The dare has been set by our Gillian:
It's around us no matter which way we turn, and all designed to get our attention. Ads designed by graphic designers who know all the tricks & techniques to draw our eyes to the product in question. You only have to glance at a Newspaper quickly to read headings with 'Shock' titles & 'Clever' puns all designed to make you want to read what the article is all about!Maybe you have been inspired by an Ad in a magazine, the colours or design that has been used. Or incorporate actual magazines & newspapers onto your card; maybe chop up letters (ransom note style) to create the sentimentSo grab that latest edition of your favourite Mag, or pick up your newspaper, because there is so much inspiration there, Just waiting for you to discover!

I took my inspiration from the fact that I've just had another baby so it's all baby stuff and magazines in the house at the moment.
I used some white card stock and basic grey scrap paper, some die cuts for the nappy pin and bottle, and made a small nappy out of felt and a tiny pin.

Could be a perfect advert for a sleepy baby - lol - only problem been here that Riley loves sleeping in the day and struggles to settle at night! boo hoo - hence so tired and no time to card make at the moment.

But I enjoyed doing the challenge so muach that I will definatley be logging on next week and for the little extra too.
