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

Wheely Interesting

Hi Daring Card Makers All, Kathy here to set the dare this week - but first - a Big Thank You to all who've joined in with Jane's Use a Quote Dare, and the Midweek Extra too. your cards are fantastic and the ideas you share with us all are always inspiring. Even if we don't always manage to leave a message, we do visit your blogs to see your cards whenever you leave a link on here.

So, on to this week and for my dare I'd like you to make cards with
wheels, not actually made with wheels, you can still use card and paper ;-), so you don't need to go and steal the ones from the car or the kids' bikes and write a message on them!
I'd like you to feature wheels ON your cards, or as part of them. So you could have cars, bikes etc on your card, or maybe you could actually make a card that moves along on some wheels..... or how about a card that has one of those "wheels" inside it (fixed with a brad) and little apertures in the actual card front so that when you move the wheel the message appears in the aperture? (I hope that makes sense)
Anyway, I'm sure you can get your creative cogs moving and come up with loads of inventive and different ways to get a wheel or two into your cards.

Hope you enjoy playing with this one. The Team has come up with some ideas to get you thinking but we're look forward to seeing what you do with it too so please leave a message and a link so we can come and see your Wheely Wonderful cards.
