Daring Cardmakers

Friday Card Challenge

Tonight I came across a fab blog site called Daring Cardmakers ( which does a challenge every Friday. Today's challege was to create something starting from the quote:

Use what talents you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.
Henry Van Dyke

Well, I couldn't resist because I've been wanting to use this stamp for ages .... and I think it fits the bill. After all, what may be music to some is discord to others - but it is all talent in someone's eyes.

Okay, here's the card I created.

Here's a close-up of the stamp

I do hope they like it. It may be a bit tongue in cheek but that ginger Tom is such a great stamp crying out for that quote.

Aw Sharon, your card really brought a smile to my face.
What a great stamp and you’re right, it fits Kathy’s dare perfectly.
