Ahoy there Mateys...

Before I begin, I just want to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for all your sweet comments yesterday on my Caterpillar Card.  It really meant so much to me that I  was able to share that with you and your comments about my card were so heartwarming.  You guys are awesome and I definitely won't forget it!

It's Wednesday....yay!  Time for another installment of the Diedrich Dare!

I have a totally great announcement to make today before we get to this week's DARE:

Please join me in welcoming my friend and colleague, the SUPER DUPER talented and fabulous RANDI WALL has joined the Daredevils!  I first met Randi when she graced the Greeting Farm's DT as a Gardener and we have kept in touch ever since.

She is amazing with paper, shimmer, and more and we are all excited to have her.  And I HAPPEN to know that she loves Pirates as much as we do in the Diedrich household so this was a fab challenge for her to start up with!

Yep, behold DDSC7:


This INSPIRATION CHALLENGE is brought to you by none other than Matey Jack.   So it was just kinda fitting that I needed to use the MATEY set from The Greeting Farm!  I cannot BELIEVE this set is on clearance for only $7 btw...can you say STEAL?  I just wanted to make mention of this too because tomorrow is the Farmer's Market so TONS of good deals and steals!


I actually printed out this treasure map paper straight from the internet.  I had hoped to print out the pic that Jack chose but I was having issues with it, AND my week...this is actually a card I made many months ago that I never blogged.  Anyway, I definitely used a literal take on the challenge but cannot WAIT for you to see what the rest of the DAREDEVILS did!  Check 'em out:

Well, now it's YOUR turn!  Be sure to LEAVE A COMMENT on the DARE BLOG to play so we can all see your great creations...and you can use DDSC7 for uploading to public galleries!

Be sure to stay tuned....next week it's time for another prize!   See you soon and I DOUBLE DOG DARE YA, MATEYs!

I love the background paper and the rolled up treasure map. Make sure you let the boys read my post for this week, I wrote a short story to go with my card, it features both boys and you are in it too! Please tell Jack I'm sorry I credited Nikki with choosing the map for this week. My goof!

Hey Jess - love this card! Great coloring, papers, layout, and I love that little scroll your pirate is holding. All the little details add up to make a wonderful card.
