Vrooooooom!

The thing about these challenges is that they
make me create. For some strange reason I
don't feel guilty neglecting other things when
I am doing them either.

Had a fabulous day at the Papercrafting Extravaganza in Harrogate on Saturday....all my favourites were there including Craftwork Cards (check our their new range of glitter papers - WOW!) and Blonde Moments. Spent a fortune but also got some fab bargains, for instance, 50 sheets of Basic Grey 12x12 for £10 - that's just 20p a sheet! Fell in love with the new 'Love, Elsie' range too - it's luscious! Also on Saturday got a delivery of Heidi Grace from Charmed - those flocked papers are soooooo tactile.

Back to Daring CardMakers 'little extra'........
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!

I used Daisy D's papers, Herbanella car sticker, and 7 Gypsies rub-ons with various brads, ribbons attached with fastenator staples and one of my favourite Heidi Grace stamps. I used scalloped scissors for the edge and inked the edges. Hope I rose to the challenge!
