A Train for My Little One

What a crazy week! After a great weekend I started off last week by getting sick and spent three days in bed with Bronchitis (not fun!) Thankfully Chris was very supportive and took care of Aidan and everything that needed to be done while I just rested. Thankfully I recoved in time for our Stamp-a-Stack today and while we were a small group everyone loved the great holiday cards we created (I'll be posting pictures later in the week so stay tuned). Aidan even joined us for stamping and he definately likes the new Dasher stamp set.

For this weeks Stamping 411 challenge I decided to make a card for my favorite little stamper. I have to travel out of town this week for work so I decided I would leave this card on his bed before I leave so he finds it when he goes to bed.

I started this card by picking out the designer paper and thought that the Pawsitively Prints DSP from the Mini catalog was perfect for a little Boy. I also used the Choo Choo stamp set and Right on Track Stampin' Wheel for the main image (I ordered this set when it came out in the last mini catalog but never actually used it. I used Ballet Blue, Pumpkin Pie, and Garden Green. Since I stamped the sentiment to be part of the trains load I added Silver Brads to the bottom corner to help balance the card.

This is not a card I would normally do for a challenge but think Aidan will love it and hope you do too!

Have a great week,

Pin It!
