Birthday Train

Hi, this is a scheduled post...I've had a last minute invite for a day out in London tomorrow with my daughter and granddaughters, so I thought I'd better do this post now! This week's challenge theme  at Fab'n ' 'Funky is 'for a child, I made this card for my friend's grandson- a train and dinosaur- loving 3 year old! The train is a digi, well three digis to be exact! I think it's from LMM but not certain. I coloured up the engine and carriages with copics and cut them out. The dinosaurs are freebie colouring page images I found online, also coloured with copics and added to the train. The card background is created with distress inks and stencils I drew the 'track' with a black pen and added die cut clouds and sentiment. I had a lot of fun making this but it did take quite while!

There's more to see over at Fab'n' Funky so please do hop over and take a look.
I'm off to bed now, I've a feeling tomorrow is going to be a busy day!
Thanks for visiting

Hope you have had a lovely day in London and the weather has been kind.
So, since spotting this , this morning I have been singing a combination of 'This train is bound for glory, this train' and The runaway train goes down the track, and she blew. Neighbour was banging on the wall.
Again when I saw it this morning I was lost for words but I have picked up now.
Super, brilliant, fabulous, a really tip top creation, love it.
