DragonsDream - Planes, Trains & Automobiles & WOYWW

Welcome to another challenge from DragonsDream Tag it on - my turn to choose the film title this week and I went for Planes, Trains and Automobiles - with a travel theme. 

I used some Rubber Stampede vintage stamps for the train and the plane - don't have a vintage car so used Tim's small car, together with Wendy's man (stamped and cut from grungepaper) on the roof!  I was going to try and sit him on the bonnet (hood) but couldn't make it work. So he's hitching a ride that way instead....

Well, it IS a comedy film......

Hope you get time to join us and have a go at a tag this week - don't forget you need to use at least one real stamp on your tag, with the theme.

So, you're thinking, where is the desk... or even the untidy floor.... well, they're not here... Not got anything to show you... nada, nothing, nil. Not been crafty at all this week - finishing the arrangements for Friday and haven't felt at all like putting ink to - anything.  Which is a shame as there are some challenges out there I want to have a crack at.. But - if the mood don't grab ya, you can't do it! I didn't want to miss a WOYWW though, so here I am... deskless!

So for a load of people who HAVE got desks to share, check out Julia's here and be amazed. See you next time!

It made me smile to see the man sprawled across the roof of the car Helen, not something we want to see happen in real life too often though, Lol!

Happy Crafting!

Hi there Helen loving your tag, great colours and embellishments, and definitely people drive cars form roof tops , esp as the car is smaller than them anyway!! :D I know I am cheeky! So know what you mean about having to feel like doing things - I think it is tiredness a lot of the time (or is with me). happy WOYWW. Shaz in oz.x

Shaz in Oz.CalligraphyCards said...

PS I forgot that I meant to say too I was thinking and praying for you this Friday in all things, {{hugs}} Shaz.xx

Angie said...

Your tag brought a smile to my face ....not sure it matters that you have no desk this week ...great that you are visiting though xx

Sarah said...

we like seeing you more than the desk...great that you made the tag - and the rest can wait...thinking of you and wishing you strength for each new day. Thanks for sharing today! Sarah at 5.

Julia Dunnit said...

Deskless but not friendless - far more important! Quite apart from being busy and having that build up for Friday, I think the mood to create is attached to the part of you that lets you look after yourself and will eventually crop up when you've got time and a mindset to be inclined. Friday will be a day swirling with love laughter and tears, am holding you in my thoughts.

Hels Sheridan said...

I am with Sarah, seeing a tag is much better than seeing a messy floor.. not that your floor would be messy cos you are always really tidy (snort) Seriously though... will be thinking about you on Friday hunny x

Franka Benjaminsen said...

Hope Friday goes smoothly for you.

It sounds like you have been busy elsewhere, just like me this week... mad world! That tag is such fun and sums it up!

Neet said...

You had the tag to show us ("not been crafty at all this week")and what a great tag it is. I thought the man was running to catch one of the modes of transport (sorry) but I see now he is hitching a ride. Looks good with either interpretation to me. Love how you have his feet off the tag.
Don't worry about the 'creating' - it might take a little while for it to settle down after what has happened in your life. Hope you are feeling ok. Hugs, Neet x
