The Little Engineer

Good morning. I hope this finds you happy, healthy and ready for the week. As for me, I broke one of my toes last week and am hobbling around a bit. Nothing serious, it's just buddy taped.

Today's card is for this week's My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club sketch challenge (MFTWSC27). As per my usual, I did flip the landscape sketch to portrait style. The stamp is MFT's Wyatt The Conductor. All the paper is from a My Mind's Eye Lime Twist 6x6 pad. I actually intended for the embellishments to be reversed here - you know, stars in bottom left corner, pearls upper right. After I sewed the rectangular pieces down I started attaching everything and as I placed the last pearl on it to finish it, I finally noticed that something was wrong. My trains were now upside down! I had flipped the panel and now I had a railroad accident right there on my card. I immediately started trying to pull things off but the stars were going nowhere. Luckily I did manage to take the stamped image off without causing too much damage so now even though my embellishments are in the wrong place at least my trains aren't going wheels up.

  1. At least the upside down trains were a pretty easy fix and I think the card looks fabulous! I wouldn't have ever thought this wasn't how you had planned it, great boy card!
    Sorry, you broke your toe that doesn't sound like much fun! Hope this week is a good one for you! :)

  2. Cute card! :) Love it.

    I have a bloggy request... forgive me if this sounds pushy. LOL Can you please remove your partial feed from your blog? I read blogs in a feed reader, and I can't see your posts because of how you have your settings (partial feed). I delete anyone from my list that does that, and I don't want to miss your posts. :) If not, no worries, but I figured I would ask.
