SSS - Transport, Cards for Maddy, CTD #246 and CFC #105

Happy Saturday! I have 3 cards to share today, 2 of them I made last night but it was too late to get them posted so I made one more to add to my little bundle today.  I was a bit stumped last night on what to make and Joyce mentioned making a card for Maddy and I used the sweet color combination from this week's Color Throwdown Challenge #246.  She is a sweet young lady who is battling cancer, no child should ever has to go through this. Simon Says Stamp is hosing this challenge to send her as many cards as possible. The staff at the hospital have a map and pin where all the cards come from, it would be wonderful to see all the cities and states pinned.  You still have plenty of time to play along you can find the link here.

My next 2 cards are for SSS - Transport and CFC #105 - Mapquest.  I have this fun little collection of cars and buses for Lucy (my Silhouette) that I have been wanting to play with them and thought this was the perfect challenge to do so. Ashleigh came in while I was making my little bus and started singing "we all live in a yellow submarine", I had to stop her!!! I am not a big fan of the Beatles and this on at the bottom of my list of their songs I will tolerate.  Not to get too far off track but I do love Sir Paul McCartney and will get to see  him at Outside Lands in August. Once I finished my card I thought it needed a hidden Mickey on it with the colors I used.  


My final card is for another travel card using the new October Afternoon - Travel Girl patterned paper. I used the luggage tag die from Taylored Expressions that I forgot I had until I saw Tracey from In My Creative Opinion use one that I sent her.  Funny how you get so many supplies and forget what you have! I am sure that has never happened to any of you right?  It was a fun card to make and I paired it with the Destinations stamp set from PTI, such a great match.  Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and peek at my cards...have a wonderful weekend and Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dad's out there!

  1. All three super fabulous cards Kim. Love the way you incorporated the luggage tags in so many different ways. Lucy cuts the cutest cars!! Perfect card for sweet Maddy. Foo Fighters don't do a lot of Beatles remakes??? ;)

  2. What fantastic cards! Love all of them!

  3. These are all wonderful. Your card for Maddy is so pretty and sweet, and I'm sure she will enjoy receiving it. I do love your second card, and agree that Mickey or Minnie ought to be somewhere on that bus--perhaps inside the card? My very favorite is your third card. What a great pairing of that paper and stamp set and die cuts. I will admit to forgetting you sent me some as well, and now I want to make exactly what you made.

  4. Ohhhh! I have been furiously working on my card, then post it. I then sit back and look at the Gallery. Lo, what do I see, another fabulous use of the October Afternoon snippet too. Great minds must think alike!

    Very cool.
