Amber Ink Birthday Party

Amber Ink is turning ONE!!!
Now how do we celebrate?  With a party of course!!!  We are hopping and you will want to join in, because not only are there fabulous creations to oooohhhh and aahhhh over at each stop, there are also prizes to be won for leaving comments along the way.
 
You should be arriving here from Jacki Randolph's blog.  If not, head on over to Taylor Usry's blog to get the party started!

I can not resist playing with new goodies, so I decided to create something using Amber Ink's newly released It's a Train Set.  And since you can not go to a party without a present, I created a gift for another little someone turning ONE!
 A paper pieced train chugging along over embossed paper hills on glossy paper button wheels.  Making this project reminded me of why I love working with digis - you can change them to any size you want!  I purchased a 10" x 20" frame with a two opening mat for 5 x 7" pictures.  Then cut away the mat separating the 2 openings to create one long opening. 

So what are you still doing here???  Leave a comment and then get on the train and get chugging along to the next stop, the fantabulous Laurel Seabrook.  Remember, there are prizes to be won!!!  You have until tomorrow night, Thursday July 21st, to leave comments and the winners will be announced on the Amber Ink blog Friday.  You can also visit the Amber Ink blog to learn details about all the festivities.
Below is the list of every stop along the hop in case you wander off track.  You are currently at #18...yes, it reads Foxy Needles, long story short, that is my alter ego :>)
Smiles,
Agent Foxy Needles

  10. Well everyone knows that all good secret agents need a "cover up" profession. It is very clear that you have chosen "artist". Well done Foxy. No one will EVER figure out your true identity - good thinking!
