Cars, Boats, Trains & Planesis 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!

My sweet little Piccolo (not her real name!) aged just 7 took her craft supplies out and created these beauties. She didn't ask for any help or ideas, she just got on quietly by herself and later I found them standing up on the sideboard where I put my newest cards once finished! I had to put them on here, I am so proud of her!

Anyway, I thought the candle was such a bargain find, 50p for a great fat candle with this lovely thing attached to it! I bought 3 just for the the stars to put on my cards!
I used Beate's sketch #20 for this one, check out her blog she got inspiration for this sketch from one of my cards, how fantastic is that!!
I have also used chipboard on this one which means it also meets the Caardvarks criteria!
Supplies: Basic Grey Dasher papers, dark green and white cardstock, green organdy ribbon, machine stitching, chipboard and stamp as above.

This time we are giving you just One Word as the inspiration for your card making and that word is GOLDEN You can use the word in any way you like - the word itself doesn't even have to be on the card, for instance you could make a card in golden shades, or maybe inspired by the seasons of Spring or Autumn which both feature lots of golden colours. Or maybe you could make a card to celebrate a Golden Anniversary, and of course Gold is a great colour for Christmas cards.....It's up to you - just go for Gold.
I also used Beate's sketch #19 for this one.

At 10pm last night DS1 informed me he needed a birthday card for his girlfriend for this morning, so I came up with this, very late last night. Consequently, I haven't had enough sleep and I am getting squiffy eyed! Probably the reason for the slant on the photo. The brief for this card was to have hearts done, job done I think!
Supplies: White and pink cardstock, Panduro stamp, Bazzill blooms, heart paper Papermania, DCWV text prints paper stack, jewel hearts and heart shaped brad from multipacks bought years ago, sorry don't remember make.

And thought I would share my near perfect home made loaf. Not completely my creation either as I just tossed a load of ingredients into the bread maker and it did its thing, how fantastic are they? I don't seem to have the muscles for real hand made bread making they are always a bit disappointing so this is good enough for me, makes me think I am that much closer to being self-sufficient.

My softy bit is the gorgeous pink velvet rik rak, just love this stuff! This one is from Ribbon Oasis. Paper is Sandylion pink paisley, stamp is Inkadinkado, I also used a pin, mulberry flowers, pearl brads and some tiny half pearls which must have come out of a multi pack of embellis, they are in compartments in my embelli box so not sure now where they came from, on and some beads also from some multi pack I suspect. The bloom is Bazzill.

I had to make a card for DD1 this week from her brothers and sister as it doesn't look like they are going to get around to making one themselves so I decided as I had this cute little cricut chihuahua I would base the card around that. Although we have a little dog she would love a chihuahua to carry around like Paris!
button, navy organdy ribbon and pale blue gingham ribbon.
