I used a Clearly Besotted  Full Steam Ahead Stamp Set and Die Set :-) 



I was inspired to make the steam train go over a hill from a recent trip to Scotland, we went on the 'Harry Potter' train, going over the same route as the Hogwarts Express, very hilly there :-)

I made an extra track at the bottom for the return journey, haha ,, I made that using a Simon's Exclusive Grid Border die and I have popped it up in the centre to make it go over a hill too, though this isn't showing very clearly on the photo. 



and here is the Hogwarts Express :-D 

For more info on this train CLICK HERE and if you are ever in or around Fort William I would definitely recommend booking this trip in advance as it was chokka block full :-) 



Thanks for looking :-) Lucy and the DT have made some fabulous cards so please hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge to see them :-)
