Many years ago my grandfather worked for the railroad. After he retired he and my grandmother opened up a little Kiddie Land park in Austin, Texas. We only lived about an hour from there and I can still remember the excitement of going to see my grandparents - um.......probably more so that I was going to be able to ride anything I wanted at the Kiddie Land - and get all the popcorn and soft drinks I wanted for free!!! I couldn't have been over about 3 or 4 years old, but still remember the HUGE train that went all the way around the park with my granddad as the conductor. It also had a HUGE merry go round and roller coaster! Of course you gotta remember when you're only 3 or 4 years old, everything looks HUGE!
When I saw this cute little digi (Gingerbread Train) over at Deedee's Digis it immediately brought back a flood of good memories........and besides that, it's as cute as can be! This is a pre-colored image and with Christmas fast approaching, this made for a quick, easy, and fun card. I added some Modge Podge Dimensional Magic (thanks to Jessi for telling me about this stuff) to the little puffs of smoke and the top of the train. It's similar to glossy accents. I added the little conductor (which is adorable) to the inside and will be sending this card to my brother to bring back some memories for him too.
Check out Deedee's Digis - very nice images. This is for their progressive challenge - if you enter this month you'll receive a free image next month. This set came with 2 different images and 3 sentiments - both colored and line.
I'll also enter it in the Pixie's Snippets Workshop (using snippets).
Thanks for stopping by...........
