Vroooooooom.................

Cars, Boats, Trains & Planes
is the theme for our Little Extra challenge this week.
A good chance to stock up on kids cards and make a few of those poor, unloved "cards for men", maybe? How about "congratulations on Passing your Driving test" or "Got your Wings" for newly qualified pilots? - ok so we may be reaching a bit far with that one, but you never know!
Basically, what we'd like you to do is put some transport on your cards this week, how you do it is up to you!


Now, don't forget - Gill's Op-Shop challenge is still open - so if you've not had a look to see what's on offer in your local Charity/Goodwill Shop, or even at a jumble sale there's still time to have a go at this one - we know that this Dare takes a bit more effort as you can't just raid your craft boxes, but look on it as a real opportunity to explore new sources of stash
- go on, have a bash, we dare you!

We have fab news to share with all our DCM friends - our lovely Kel gave birth to a beautiful baby boy on Friday 21st - huge congratulations Kel and family - and welcome to the world baby Harrison.
Everyone say aaaaahhhhhhhh!

Here are some transport cards from DT members to help you get thinking:

Sorry, another comment from me. When we have these m/week challenges would it be possible to accredit the DT cards to the makers as you do on a Friday, as I really want to praise them, but don't always have time to search through all the DT links. I realise this is extra work for someone, but I'm sure we all want to show our appreciation for the work you've put in.
