Steam Train

Hello everyone, it's been a wet, wet day today and it's still raining. We need the rain here as it's been a cold winter, but not a very wet one. Hopefully we will get a bit more before winter is over or we may have to go back onto water restrictions again over summer.
I've been at Shirley's for craft today and again made 3 delightful cards, it's always a fun time together. I had to go out in the rain for choir practise tonight - I'm not keen in driving in the rain and not being able to see where my lane is! but at least most people were doing the right thing and had actually slowed their speed down - it was fairly heavy rain.
My card for today is for a challenge at Come and Get It Challenges and the theme is Red, White and Black colours. I'm also entering this into the Make It Monday Linky Party, - Anything Goes and also Cards for Men, which is Anything Goes
I'm being adventurous joining in more than one challenge, LOL
The basecard is black cardstock and I've used my nestie's to cut the red and white labels. I stamped this lovely train image, (which I bought on e-bay and was unmounted rubber, so I have no brand name) using SU Basic black, the sentiment is from Kaszazz stamps and I also added 3 red bits of bling to finish it off. The strip of white on the bottom I also distressed the edges for an added bit of interest.
Well, it's getting late so hope the rest of your day is restful,
Take Care.
