CCEE1947: Go for a Ride Day!

Hi friends!

I'm finally home again to make another card for the CCEE Stampers
theme this week:  Go for a Ride Day!

Frances is our hostess for this month and said:

Tomorrow is Go For A Ride Day, 
so for our challenge this week incorporate some sort of transport on your card…. 
Bike, car, train, plane, hot air balloon etc. 
How will you be riding this week?

I'm going to get around by Santa's sleigh!
(I wish! Imagine how fun that would be!)

For today's card I've used Ho Ho Holidays by Lawn Fawn. 
Since it's the holidays, I decided to make my take on the challenge
into a holiday one with Santa and his ride!
I actually had these images colored for The Daily Marker Coloring Challenge
and added them to the base of a card I quickly put together
using designer paper and a lot of dies!

Because it was easier the second time!!
I did the un. think. able.

I had my entire card done, smiled at how it came out,
set it down to add the sentiment and boom!
Dropped the opened black in pad right onto the front of the card.
I was so. so. so. SOOOOOOOOOO upset.
I ended up setting everything aside on my desk,
went to Starbucks and had a yummy coffee and decompressed!

With no way to fix it,
and nothing that I could do, I started over and ta-da!

I'll enter this into Lawn Fawn's challenge #65:  Fun with Dies

 and Simon Says Stamps:  Starry starry night!

And the Splitcoaststampers inspiration site:  Santa Claus and his sleigh
ornament from Bronner's Christmas Wonderland!

What are you working on this weekend?!
I'm hoping to get a jump start on some extra holiday cards ~
for the kids, my sweet granddaughter, my mum!

Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥

  9. Adorable, Kelly! I had a frustrating stamping moment yesterday too! I dropped a clear stamp off my table. Searched for it all over the place, having heard it fall to the ground! I spent at least half an hour, thinking how could it just disappear? Anyway, I gave up looking and starting putting the dies away that I had used on the card. Wouldn't you know it had fallen into the drawer that the die came from!! Your fun little scene was definitely worth the do-over!

  10. This is so cute!

  11. super sweet Christmas scene!
