I enlarged and printed out the pre-colored image of the train and the conductor and then I cut the conductors's head off and pieced it into the train window. I colored the ground with Copics and used some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink for the sky. The sentiment comes along with the Gingerbread Train set. After printing it out and matting it I added a little red brad to match the door knob on the train. It's very hard to see in this picture but I added Dazzling Diamonds to the MS snowflakes and the top of the train. I think you might be able to see it better if you click on the image to enlarge it. I am happy with the way it came out and I'm pretty sure Alli will get a kick out of it as well as being happy that she still gets here Ditty Box. That's it for me for tonight. I'll see you again soon and as always I appreciate your visit and comments.

Another Deedee's Digi of the Month
All of our children have a gift that they love to receive at Christmas. We call it a "Ditty Box". It's a tote that we fill with things that they need but hate to spend the money on like paper towels, cleaning supplies, toothpaste, etc. Well this year one of our daughters, Alli, will not be making it home for Christmas so I made her a very small ditty box, just a few small items like lip balm, cough drops, etc. and a check to buy what she needs at home. This way she still gets her ditty box without us spending a mint on shipping a big tote. Yesterday I played along in Deedee's December Digi Challenge I used her free image titled Gingerbread Train. While I was making my card, I kept thinking that I could use these digi images for my Ditty Box. So today I made up Alli's Ditty Box - what do you think?
