Your Next Stamp Challenge

Hi there!

A few weeks ago, when we traveled to see family, we took our beautiful granddaughter on a train ride in their local mall.  This is just a small rubber tired train, consisting of an engine and three cars, but she loves the Choo Choo of the train whistle, getting to ride with PawPaw and Grandma, and waving at her parents, and her baby brother while they watch.

When I saw this darling set 'All Aboard', from Your Next Stamp, I knew I had to have it.  PawPaw and I sent our sweet granddaughter a card to thank her for letting us ride the train with her. When I sat
down yesterday to create this card, I saw the challenge at YNS, and decided to follow the sketch.
I very loosely followed the colors as well.

Here is their inspiration:



And here is my card:


Here's the inside of the card:


The photographs didn't do well, as there is glossy accents on the train windows.  As you can see, she already likes to drive :)

I will be entering this card in the Your Next Stamp Sketch and Color Challenge #60.
Hope to see you enter there, as well.

Thanks for dropping by today - hope your week is off to a great start.
It's raining here, and ever so dark.  Bah...started out to be such a glorious day!

Happy Monday,
Patti J.

Oh goodness, Patti, this is adorable. Can't decide if I love the card or the story behind it better, but I guess they go hand in hand.

Very creative, and so much love packed into a card, she probably will carry it around for days. Such a fun memory, miss those days when my Grands were little, but so many great memories with them.

Hugs
Sue

Excellent job with the sketch. How cool that you found a train to represent your time spent on the train. I got a chuckle out of your faces in the windows.

What a cute card, Patti! Sounds like you had a fun time with your granddaughter, and this card will remind her of that as she grows older.
