Dueling Darlings - November

Welcome to the duel!   The Dazzlers and the Divas are here for our monthly challenge.   Let the duel begin!

Planes, Trains & Automobiles are our theme this month!  While I have not seen the movie, I have heard it is funny.  I will have to add the movie to my 'to view' list.  The premise of the movie is a part of our challenge, traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday.

The first thing I thought of with travel was this song!   While I love me some Gladys, I really like this rendition from the Indigo Girls.

We spent most of our Thanksgivings at my grandparent's house, which was about an hour drive away, so no long road trips.   We eagerly anticipated the feast awaiting us! 

Carol, is our hostess for this round.  She sent us the best kit containing so many travel themes.  I was tempted to use the train - I think that is where the song came from - but I went with a general travel theme.  

We have a friend that is recovering from major surgery.  One of his goals is to spend the holiday with his family.  Due to this, I forewent the image and stamped the destination. I am sending him this card, so he can keep his eye on the goal.  I hope it works!

Please be sure to check out the other Dueling Darlings' creations.  Their blogs are listed on the right side bar.

Terrific card, Tami! Love that crisp, clean look of neutrals withthe pop of red. Great layout gives it a very dynamic look. Love the story behind it too. I'm sure your friend is going to enjoy receiving it! Hope he makes a full recovery and gets to Oregon for the holidays!!

I love how you personalized this kit for your friend! I am sure he will make it home for the holiday! (Like my song in response??lol)

How great that you changed up the kit for someone special! I am sure that he will appreciate it! This is a perfect card for a guy recovering his health. As for the Indigo Girls, and that double CD set in particular: Bijou is very familiar with it, and that song in particular, as it's in my fav's! Great minds
