I hope you will join us but please remember we are a CARD ONLY challenge! Check out the blog for all the wonderful DT inspiration and play along!

I’m driving a rather fast car to Migraine City again at the mo so please forgive the quick post!  Once I pass a truck loaded with painkillers I am hijacking it and swallowing the lot!!!!K
