Dueling Darlings : Planes, Trains & Automobiles

     Hello friends in Blogland ;o)
Yeahh...middle of the month and it’s time for another Darling Duel!
See the link below for more informations:
This month our wonderful hostesses are : Debbie (for us Dazzlers) and Carol (for the Divas)
They both sent their respective teams great kits with a super theme in mind : 
Planes, Trains and Automobiles... how cool is that?? Most of you may remember the funny old 1987 movie bearing the same title, with John Candy and Steve Martin at at the helm....such a classic!!
(Debbie I  know you have YET to see it...perhaps this holiday season? lol) *wink*
Here's our hostess own words for this month's challenge:

     " Hello Dazzlers!
Here is a bit of information about the month of November…
November is Aviation History Month and National Model Railroad Month. Also, November 22 is Go for a Ride Day.
With those things in mind, a theme of: Planes, Trains & Automobiles was mentioned. Then Carol asked me if I had ever seen the movie Planes, Trains & Automobiles? (I have not.) But she explained that the characters of the movie are trying to get home for Thanksgiving.
Well….duh…with those events taking place in November and the theme of the movie around Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving coming in November…it was decided that “Planes, Trains & Automobiles” would be our theme.
While going through my things to prepare the kits I just could not decide on which mode of transportation to pick…so I sent two kits. (This does not mean you have to make two cards.)
Also, please share a memory of getting to your favorite holiday or thanksgiving (good or bad….LOL)
on your blog when you post your card.

1st Kit Contents:
Images: “Emelia” – Kraftin Kimmie Stamps
DP: “Hopscotch Boy Toy” - K & Company
CS: Really Rust – SU!
Embellishments from SU: Old Olive Ribbon, Linen Thread, Vintage Safety Pin

2nd Kit Contents:
Image: “Chevrolet 1957” – Clear Dollar Stamps                 
DP: “Road Trip” – American Crafts
Embellishments: Brights Button; White Baker’s Twine
Black Brad from my stash

Emelia's colored with Copics, and I added crystal effect to her eyes , her pilot's goggles and the airplane's propeller . The lil plane on the right corner of the card does move...I just anchored it with a tiny silver brad in the middle of the propeller, leaving the rest of it 'free' to fly up and down and around :o)...*wink*
I also used a CB folder 'Houndstooth' , 'Puffy Clouds' by Memory Box (first time I used this die on felt and loved it!)
Card panel used here is Old Olive.

'sThis is the inside of the card, the designer paper is visible via the opening I did in the front by cutting off part of it with my rectangar Spellbinders, thus forming an open 'window'...(I am not sure what these type of cards are called, I just simply call it a 'window card'...

There you have it!...BTW this is my first time using a Krafting Kimmie image on  a card
and I'm pretty pleased with it! *wink*....
{{THANKS DEB!!!I hope you like it!!}}
 I better go and get some shut eyes is 4:00 am here!!! yikes!! :/
Have a GREAT day everyone!!
Please go and check all the other Dueling Darlings wonderful creations....
