100% Cute

The sketch this week at Card Patterns is a good one - #50! The design team made adorable cards, using digi stamps from this week's sponsor Inktegrity, so last night I decided to check out the digi stamps for myself. I saw this train and immediately thought of hearts for the smoke - I am going for the cute factor on this card! Plus, my sons love trains!I kept it really simple, but added a ton of dimensionals and buttons. I stamped hearts on the card base and hand drew the stitching lines on the circle, hearts, and "track". Besides hearts, this train would be great with ABC's or a child's name for the smoke!A big thanks to my friend Lisa for the idea of using embroidery floss to connect the wheels! I was talking about what I was going to do with the train and when I mentioned using buttons she said "and connect them with thread, right?".
I also have to mention that Inktegrity sent the digi stamp via e-mail super fast and the owner is a sweetheart!! Thank you again!
I don't know what I am going to do once Valentine's Day is over, I have been loving all the hearts lately. I guess it is on to Easter eggs or better yet, little chicks!
Smiles,
Julie
