Birthday Train


This is the second card I made for my Mum's neighbour. This one is for her little girl to give to her brother. I didn't have an image with a train, other then a Christmas one but I remembered that I had a diecut I bought years ago before I discovered stamping. In my quest to use old stash I decided to use this as the main focus of my card. It is rather cute isn't it. 

I teamed it with First Edition Man Made paper, a Papermania Happy Days journal tag with added doodling, Memory Box clouds and a little Claire sentiment stamp.

The washing machine and tumble dryer will be going full steam today with all that holiday washing. Time to restock the fridge and cupboards too. I have posts scheduled for a few days and will catch up with you as soon as I can and of course draw my candy and share some pics of my lovely new stash.
