JAI #30 - Helphing Hudson - Just Add Wheels

This week the JAI team have joined in with the Helping Hudson Fundraiser team, and are doing a challenge in Hudson's honour - Just Add Wheels.  If you haven't read about Hudson, please visit the blog and check out his story and all the great challenges, prizes and tutorials available to purchase to help this cute little guy get his wheels.
This is my DT submission

The colour inspiration for this came from a pair of Harry's pjamas.  Light blub moment was using brads for the wheels, putting my previously unused Jumbo 5/16" brads to good use.  I used Crystal Effects on the windows to look make them look like glass and then another light bulb moment to have the sentiment look like it was coming from the smoke.  I made the template for the cloud using the large Oval Punch, 3/4" RD and 1/4" RD punches.  This card is for one of Harry's little friends who is celebrating his birthday on Saturday.

And yes, Choo Choo and Right On Track will be available for purchase again come September 1.

Whilst I like the end result, I wish I had have been as creative as the other DT girls, who have come up with the most awesome projects.  Be sure to check them out here.

Thanks for visiting and I look forward to checking out your creations.  Don't forget to Help Hudson too!

Have a good one!

I think it's so creative to pop all those silver brads on the train wheels! Great card.

Love all your 'lightbulb moments' Jo! The colours, firstly, look fantastic. The brads are a touch of genius. And, I LOVE the sentiment in the cloud of steam - too cute!!
