Tutorial Time at Speedy TV #3

When I saw this challenge I said "why"??????  Please give me a flower or animal. Ask me to make a background. I can have a card made in 5 minutes.  But a Train Tunnel. Where to begin. I am just not that creative. Thank Heavens for the great tutorial Lois made for us to follow. Sorry to say if it has to do with a vehicle of any kind I just have no interest. My husband likes car shows. You know those cruise ins and whenever there is an old car display at a festival.  Or the old tractor displays at the fair. That is where he is. BOY!! if I see it I steer us away from it before he drags me there to look at them. He's smiling and is so excited looking at them. I'm like bored out of my mind. It's a car. It's an old piece of junk. We've been to Nasa, an old train museum and an old airplane show. Just can't get excited about it. I just don't have that gene. Soooooo getting back to this train tunnel. I have been looking and looking at this tutorial and putting it off as long as possible. I am not a put-er off-er. I tried plotting a scene with a house or barn with some horses in the yard, a few mountains in the distance but never got there. I cut the tunnel way down to go along with the tiny train from the Silhouette mini. Cut the bottom half of the image off. Drew in some tracks. Everything else is from the Scenic selections set. Now all you girls out there like me go and make a train tunnel. This is why its called a challenge. :O) When at Speedy TV look for the tab that says Tutorial Time Challenges and click on # 3 for the train tunnel challenge. Enter your card for a chance to win a new stamp set.
