CD Sunday - Travels Abroad

Thank you for your entries to our challenge last week.  I did think it was going to be a tad difficult but you all came up trumps again.  Lovely cards.  Now Sue is going to find it difficult to choose  just 3 from them all.
This weeks theme is 'Travels Abroad' chosen by Christine.  Now it was my turn to find it difficult.  I am sure I am not the only crafter  who finds sometimes that they have an idea and start to go down that road only to reach a complete impassse and there seems to be no way out -  or to work out what  final tweak is needed to put it right.
My fellow teamies came to the rescue and pointed me in the right direction after telling me nicely that I was being too critical -  and hopefully the result isn't too bad.

The tweak suggested was to change the colour of the watch face and I think it made all the difference.

I used Robert Addams - Vintage Transport CD for the three train 'stamps'. Tim Holtz papers for the rest and the watch die is also from  Robert Addams.

I am off on my own travels abroad in the not too distant future.   My sister is kindly taking me off to France for a few days shopping.  I am looking forward to the break and some serious retail therapy.

    I hope you have a great shopping trip, Hope the strom that's coming will not cause you any damage. Take care

  2. I love the idea of traveling abroad on a train (in particular Canada) and this card makes a great advert for that Carol. Have a great time on your shopping trip to France.
