Cute Card Thursday 'Planes, Trains + Automobiles'
The challenge at Cute Card Thursday this week is 'Planes, Trains + Automobiles' or any other form of transport you can think of.
I have used one of the new Penny Black transparent stamps, a little mouse hitching a ride on a snail. These stamps are fab but maybe a little small so I also added a couple of butterflies. I have coloured the image with Prismacolors and Sansador and added Glossy Accents to give the snail a shiny shell and some glitter to the butterflies. The circles are cut with Nestabilities dies and the papers are more from my scrap pile, which at long last is getting smaller!! The sentiment is by Hero Arts.

What a fantastic image to use for a transportation theme challenge! Very clever Andrea! I love it! Beautiful coloring as always.

I place my first Nestabilities order. I'm getting circles. The place I ordered from is very backed up with orders (waiting patiently to receive them in stock), so it will take a while for me to get my order, but I can wait. I was able to use a 40% online coupon, so I would rather save the money and wait. I will be so excited to finally receive them though!
