Daring Cardmakers Challenge

The dare this week on Daring Cardmakers has been set by Tanya and is "THIS WAY...I want to see Arrows." I am often asked "where do you get your ideas for cards"...well I must be honest sometimes from the weirdest places. After I read the dare this week I went off to my crafty cubbyhole to do some work and suddenly I couldn't stop singing that song "Is this the way to Amarillo"....remember the video by Peter Kay for Children in Need but how could I make that into a card....well this cute little fella came to the rescue......

Last challenge of the week completed but of course they start off all over again on Monday. Off to put my feet up and relax...probably nothing on the box...so will no doubt end up back up at the computer doing a bit of blog hopping.

But you do realise that I am now going to be singing it for the rest of the night as will everyone who reads it!!! sha la la la la la la la (clap clap) lol xxx I have to say that the bit in the video when Ronnie Corbett falls over is one of the funniest things I have ever seen.
