Choo Choo!

Trains are the BEST, aren't they? I love all those old black and white movies where they are traveling cross-country on a train . . . I have always dreamed of what fun it would be! And who WOULDN'T want to take a ride on the Hogwart's Express? Especially if you get to run into Harry Potter???? But I digress . . .

The challenge on SCS yesterday (WT214) was to incorporate a frame of ANY kind into your card/project. I knew IMMEDIATELY that I was gonna use this DARLING polka dot frame from Spellbinders. Isn't it just the CUTEST? This baby is going to get a LOT of use by me, that is for sure!! And again I used Kittie's multi-loop bow tutorial (see link on the post below). I'm loving it!

Speaking of Spellbinders . . . many of my friends are in Arizona right now at the 2009 Design Team Retreat . . . I am missing them more than I can say, but I am sure they are having a WONDERFUL time (HI FRIENDS!!). Keep your eyes posted in the next week or so . . . I am sure you will be hearing from them on their blogs about it!!

On a side note . . . be sure to keep those who lost their jobs at SU this week in your thoughts and prayers. What a tough week this has been. While you are at it . . . I guess we should just continue to pray for improvement in our economy over all . . . we could ALL use it! :)

I don't do kids cards well at all and always marvel at how people come up with such cute cards for kids. Nice work...!
