I lost my "train" of thought...lol!

Hello everyone! And yes, what you read above is true. As I approach 38 (again, I thought I was 38 this year already) I seem to start an idea and then forget what I was going to do with it. haha! So before I forget,
my Blog Candy giveaway ends on Sunday, November 15th. This is the day my mommy and daddy welcomed me into their world, and my siblings groaned in silence. HAHA! Just kidding. But be sure to enter your name for the random drawing by clicking on this pic in my sidebar. ----------->

And before I lose this train, I better show it to you!



Ever since I released this set from my Inktegrity line, I kept wanting to turn it into a happy Christmas train. I finally had the chance to do it last night! It was so much easier than I thought it would be, I hand drew the little tree and cany cane in the car, added lots of liquid app, made a little wreath, and then drew in the curvy lines for the Christmas "lights" (really just dots of stickles and glitter). Here is a closer look:



I had a small circle punch that I used for the wreath, then I did an inverted scallop with deco scissors for the outside. I also finally got to use my MS train border punch, it's so sweet IRL.





Here are the list of challenges for this little card:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday's current layout
One Stop Craft challenge of Cards for Kids
Die Cuts R Us Emboss Something
Digi Kitty Punch it
Papertake Weekly's Digi Sparkle

I piled it on quite a bit today didn't I? haha! I am so happy to finally jump back into challenges again, it's so much fun to see all these wonderful and creative blogs. :D
Have an incredible Thursday everyone, thank you so much for your visit.
*Love and Aloha*
