CSAYL Card Set Challenge #1

A new challenge has started over at the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog and its a card set challenge. You have to create a set of at least 3 cards and it doesnt have to be Christmas cards. It can be for birthdays, anniversaries, Thanksgiving, etc. Just make 3 or more of the same card! For this first challenge Maria issued a sketch challenge, and here is what it looks like:

I decided to use the Happiness Is A Journey set. I loved this set from the minute I saw it but didnt buy it until I saw it on the retired list this year. I immediately bought it and planned on making cards for my grandpa, who had retired from the railroad and for my husband, who just loves trains. In May 2009 my grandfather passed away and I never did get a card done with this set to send him and that just breaks my heart. He spent 40 yrs working as a signal maintainer for Conrail(once known as New York Central and Penn Central) in western MA and any picture of a train made him smile. When both Grandma and Grandpa retired they travelled all across the US by train and made wonderful friends thanks to their many journeys. So Grandpa, wherever you are, I hope you can see this card and that you like it. I love you and miss you terribly!

Here is the card I came up with for this challenge:
