Hi all, Another baby was born to my co-worker last week so I was inspired to make this card. I had a hard time with this, it took hours, pouring over my paper choices and a layout. I cut the train pieces first not knowing how I was going to arrange them on a card. I usually don't do that. The size and shape of the card changed many time before I settled on this. I used alot of older supplies, I was happy to do that.

I used Cricut cart. New arrival for the train, and SB for the scallopped circle. The paper is from DCWV, the very first scrapbook paper stack I ever bought! I use it for scrap and testing cuts but I really liked this light blue plaid so I used it. My N.Y. Resolution is to "Buy less, create more". (hehe, not so specific).
I made the train into a little pull toy by adding some red/white twine with a little bead in the end. So cute!
The sentiment is a MSE rub on.  Kim:)
