You're Incredible!

Hello My Craft Friends,
 I'm so happy to be back. I seen to have lost my mojo and happy to be back. I really wanted to make this card for a little boy name Brando who is 4 years old.  Over at My Paper Craft World Blog the Cooking With Cricut challenge is to make a card for Brandon and to send it to him. Brandon and his family members were in a horrific car accident that forever changed the lives of his family. Brandon's mother, aunt and sister were all seriously injured and rushed to area hospital, his mother's boyfriend died of his injuries. I'm asking you all to keep Brandon and his family in your prayers! Please go to "MY PAPER CRAFT WORLD" for all the details.

Tool Used:
Did you all know that you can get more out of you Cricut Carts if you just think outside of the box. Well today I thought out of the box and used my Gingerbread Cart. I've had this cart for year now and I haven't used it. I thought I would only used it for Christmas. When I saw this cute little train I know this was the cut for Brandon's card! I cut it out at 3".  I used some of my vary favorite paper line My Minds Eye. This is from the 6x6 Blink of an Eye pad. Don't you thin the paper is perfect and pretty. The stamp is from one of my favorite stamp ladies " K. Andrew"  I used  her set Of Mince & Lil Men.  I add some brads to highlight the sentiment.  I know you wondering why I add ribbon. You all know I love ribbon; I had to add it to make train tracks. I didn't have any carts with tracks and I cant draw. It has a lot of great saying for little boys. I don't have any little boys all girls; but my nephews are just like my son. I love them to death. I used Paper Trey Ink  card stock and some pop dots.

What a fun card! To make a train track, I use a fence image, cut it down the middle, stack the pieces on top of each other! It actually looks like the side view of a train track...including the cross ties! Great job on the card!
Such a cute card and I love that you used the Gingerbread train. Thanks for joining us for the Cards for Brandon challenge.
