Saying Good Bye with a big "Dare" Bang!!!

What's popping friends??!! We are already into July!!! can you believe how fast summer is going by?! i sure can't... except i can really do WITHOUT this heat... hehe....

Thank you so very much for ALL your particpation in last month's Dare Challenge!!! All of your creations were FANTASTIC and very summery in every and any way... So thank you again!!! we had a tremendous amount of participants.....

now for some HUGE announcements!!! For starters, we have another challenge for you this week and it's sure to get your fireworks popping... Don't forget to check out the Dare blog to see who the lucky winner of last month's challenge is... but for the really BIG news.... it was with much difficult and thought-out decisions to close the doors of Whimisical Wednesdays - The Diedrich Dare after this challenge.... with that said, July's challenge will last one week and we will announce our last winner on the Dare blog next Wednesday, July 14th.... Please hop on over to the Dare blog for more info regarding the closer...

before i continue, i want to send out many hugs to Jessica and her lil' Daredevils (children) for a wonderful experience and all the fun... Jacquie, for all your hardwork in being Jessica's right hand and keeping us girls intact.... and my fellow DT sisters, for being my extended family!! Wish you all the best in your new adventures!!! I will miss working with you all!!

alright before the emotions run wild.... we are saying GOOD BYE to the Dare with a huge Bang of inspiration... and this is how....
this week's challenge is to use the inspirational photo above... perfect, since we just celebrated the 4th of July right?! which, by the way, i hope you all had a bangin' time celebrating.... so get creative with this one and join us in one farewell challenge at the Dare.... another prize pack is up for grabs and you can gather all the deets on the Dare blog....
using both the patriotic colors and cupcake inspiration from the photo, i came up with this... Cheeky Rockabilly from TGF was perfect for this little cupcake scene.... she's kickin' up this party...

Please don't forget to make your rounds visiting my Daredevil Sisters and bid a farewell to them too.... here's a list of the Dare team members:

with a very fond farewell and hurrah, i send off this last challenge for the Whimisical Wednesday - The Diedrich Dare with a bountiful light of fireworks!! Thank you everyone, for your endless support for the Dare!!! Hugs!!!
