Sweet 'n Sassy Customer Blog Hop

Welcome to March's Sweet 'n Sassy Customer Blog Hop! This is such a fun event and a great opportunity to see not only the design team's work but also creations made by our customers! And the best part? You have a chance to win free product!! You can read the full details on the hop here. So...this month's theme is "Think Spring" and we are definitely ready for some warmer weather here in New England! And as much as I adore all things flowery and springy, I got very distracted by this brand new, super cute digi image, Chugging Along. I mean isn't it just adorable! And since my sweet boy's birthday was yesterday...well....I just had to go with a card that would give a little nob to him. But I did use a few bright colors in my card, does that count?? :-) For my card, I printed the digi out on Prism Smooth cardstock and colored the image with Copics. I then created my card layout, based upon an old Mojo Monday sketch. The paper I used is from My Minds Eye. I created a cloud covered background for the train (I used a hand cut template and sponge to create the clouds) and then cut out the train and attached it with foam tape. I used the sentiment to make a cloud of smoke coming out of the train's smoke stack (is it called a smoke stack??) And then I loaded up the train cart with a bundle of hearts...which, as my son would say, means I love you. Enjoy today's card and stop by the Sweet 'n Sassy digi blog to sign up for the blog or to just hop along and view the artwork!
