DCM - Charity Begins at Home

Rachel Booth is the GD this week and her dare.....?

Let's go Charity shopping
or Op shopping (as we call it in Australia)

I DARE you to visit your local Charity Shop & make someone else's TRASH your STASH!

My Trash was a necklace found for 50p. I also used cut off cream ribbons from the shoulders of a jumper that they add to stop it falling off the hangar in the shop and a button from an old pair of trousers.

Background paper is Crate Paper 'Chickadee' from their Birdie range. Blooms were from Dunelm with a Prima in the centre. The peg was a left over from pegging the Christmas cards up. And I have a secret to tell you..... shh... come closer I can't say this out loud. I used peel offs for the flower on the tag and the greeting down the right hand side. I had to say that quietly because all who know me know how much I really don't like them any more. I bought and used sooo many when I first started making cards and have loads and loads of sheets sitting their in their own drawer. I really don't mind when Freya raids these to be honest!

Sorry it's posted at the 11th hour but I only went shopping for the necklace last night on my way home from work and sat down after tea this eve to make my dare.

Thanks for another great dare ladies.
