Train Tunnel


When we were in AK, we saw some neat train tunnels.  When we went out west on two RV trips, they were there too--long, deep, and dark tunnels.  So when the challenge at MFP was to create a train tunnel using a DT tut by Lois, I was a little perplexed.  The tut was great and I could make the tunnel, and I tried to do a scene, really I did, but my childish train stamps looks silly or my perspective seemed way off.  My best little tree stamps are 500 miles away and why did my trees just seem like they were stacked on top of each other and not nestled on a mountain side.   I ended up with a "Over the Mountains and Through the Woods" stamp from Inkadinkado and found some paper that made me think of a train trip we once took from Dillsboro to Bryson City, NC.  I stamped the theme statement inside the card and added some of the paper to finish it off.  The card makes me smile and I hope it makes you smile too!

This is adorable. I love it for a little man's birthday card. Even the multiple suns seem to symbolize a longer journey. So cute!
