Just a quick one!

Its my turn (Bondgirl) to set the dare this week and its inspired by my life. As you all know I have 2 small children (2 and 4 months!) and managing life with them, my housewifely duties, studying for my BA, life, etc etc etc crafting sometimes has to take a back seat. You know what its like for every item you cross off your to do list, another 2 get written on. And then comes the dilemma, its X's birthday, or A and B's anniversary - what do you do? Time isnt on your side to make a card but you dont want to pay a small fortune for one in the shops either. Well hopefully this dare will help you out.

I want you to make a QUICK CARD! a card that takes you no more than hmm say 30 minutes max to do - start to finish. No set ingredients and pick your own theme, but be quick and be crafty! (and dont forget to tell us how long it took too). You can post your link in our comments link so we can have alook or you can email it to us at daringcardmakers@hotmail.co.uk.
