Thomas the Tank

Yesterday I cleaned out my craft supplies and found some Thomas the Tank scrapbook paper I had used for my grandsons about 5 years ago. I really like Thomas and am sad to see my grandsons grow out of this phase. They really grow up too fast don't they? I think it will really make some little boys happy making it into cards for Send a Smile 4 Kids.
Hard to see in the photo but I used a wide stripe SU impression folder on the white and then made "train tracks" by sponging on some black and drawing in the ties with a black fine marker. The sentiment, image and arrow are all cut from the paper. Inside I added another strip of the paper. I really wanted to put googly eyes on Thomas but these will be for the little guys. I'm afraid they would get pulled off and put in the mouth.

The other card I made with the same supplies. I added some "steam" clouds by punching out white circles, whacking at them with my snips and then sponging some gray ink.

I am also going to submit this to Tuesday Throwdown who has an Anything Goes challenge this week.
Back to the desk to make up a few more using the rest of the paper.
