So, it's Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend and I am back at the computer. Two of my posts which were scheduled posted properly but one went astray. I have reset it for tomorrow so we'll see what happens. For today, I want to share with you a Christmas card I've made for a very special someone -- my youngest grandson, who (at 5 years old) happens to think that trains are the most fantastic things ever invented! :-D
The sketch came from Paper Players.
Don't you just love that vintage train, chugging along through the snow with smoke trailing along behind the smokestack? Brrrr, winter is definitely here! It's from Graphics Fairy. The card is about as CAS as I could get, but I did add the one snowflake which is totally covered in glitter. I also added glitter to the headlamps on the train, and then used Creative Inspirations paints to add some shimmer to the snow, the moon hiding behind the clouds, and the smoke. I wish it showed up better in the photograph.
Here are the challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks - snowflakes
