Ticket to Ride

Lots of things sprang to mind when I saw this challenge at Dragons Dream TIO this week. The Beatles always seemed to introduce some humour into their songs and I thought this stamp of the little Christmas Engine might go well on a tag. I got the stamp in a bag of stamps from a carboot sale and never thought I would ever be able to use it--just shows you shouldn't throw anything away. The train at Ryde in the I.O.W goes almost into the sea on the pier so used that 'Ryde' instead of just the word 'ride'


I would also like to enter this for the challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges where you can enter anything but a card

  1. Chrissie, what a fab idea - Love the "Ryde" - just perfect, and as you say meets the humour in their lyrics. Thanks for dreaming with us at TIO this week.

  2. Hi Chrissie, what a wonderful idea! I love the humour of having a ticket to Ryde, very clever...and just goes to show that you never can tell when a stamp might come in handy. Thankyou for joining us at Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight. Good luck.
