I'm travelling into a new way of working, a new country, a new language, and a new hobby which I'm passionate about. Come with me for some of the journey...

Calico Car Rally

Hello!  It's the first of two posts for today... I'll be back in the morning with my second offering for my Summertime theme this month at Country View Challenges.  But right now I've got a couple of sneak peeks for you (but of course!) to try to tempt you over to the Calico Craft Parts blog where there's a whole quartet of vehicular tags for you to check out.  (I use the word vehicular advisedly... there's more than just cars to be seen.)

You'll barely believe the detail on some of the Craft Parts I've been using, and for the most part I've left them unadorned to speak for themselves. 


But so that you can see what happens when you start playing with them, there's even a bonus ATC!


And if they don't mind travelling to see the whole thing, I'd love to add the ATC to the Things With Wings challenge at Frilly and Funkie.  It's so long since I've managed to play along there, and it's always been one of my favourite challenges.


For those times when you need a masculine card, these Calico Craft Parts will more than hit the spot - though I have to say I'd be more than happy to find them on a card for me too... why should the boys have all the fun?!  I hope you'll have time to hop over and take a look, and I'll wish you all a wonderful week.

Removing the faults in a stage-coach may produce a perfect stage-coach, but it is unlikely to produce the first motor car.
