All Aboard the Gingerbread Express!

Good Monday Morning! Today I have a card using Deedee Anderson's brand new digi stamp set called "Gingerbread Train." If you played along with her November challenge, you received this stamp set for free, but it's still available right here if you want to play along in our December challenge. When you join in with Deedee's December's challenge, you'll receive January's digi stamp/set absolutely free! You might even want to follow Deedee's blog because she offers random free digis for a limited time too - now that's a good thing :) You can find all of Deedee's digis right here.

I used some retired SU! dsp that seemed to go along with this fun image, and fussy-cut the little conductor and popped him up on dimensionals. The sentiment was done with an EK ticket punch and I punched a few holes, as back in the older days, they punched your train tickets after you got on board.

I was going to enter this into the Tuesday Morning Sketches, but the links were already closed........sigh. I have a solid reputation for running a day late and a dollar short, but I hope you enjoy the card anyway :)

I'm looking forward to seeing what you create with this adorable digi, so come play along with us and have some fun! The train won't be pulling out of the station until the end of December, so you have plenty of time to play!

Have a great week ahead and thanks for stopping by!

You did a fabulous job with Deedee's train/conductor images. I love that you punches the tickets like they used to do by in our day. I'm just starting to work on my card now. Wonderful job. Enjoy your day.

Choo-choo!!! This little train is so cute and you've made it into a precious card! Love the DP you used. The holes in the tickets!! Yikes! Fun memories for me! My grandparents had a little kiddie land park and it had a train that went all the way around the park. They would give out tickets like this and punch the holes in them! Thanks for bringing back those memories!

Enjoyed this sweet & colorful card very much, and thanks, too - for the links to DeeDee. I shall buzz over & see what's going on. Your striped paper was just perfect with this gingerbread train, and loved the idea of the dimensional conductor. I remember when tickets were punched! TFS & Hugs
