As you can see I flipped Leslie's sketch which is fine with Leslie. I colored my image with Copics. I cut it out with oval and scallop ovals by SB after I sponged around the edges of the oval. The sentiment is by Hero Arts and cut out with punches. The background card stock is Very Vanilla and stamped with a retired background stamp by SU! I used a retired punch on two of the corners. The mats are Chocolate Chip by SU!. Wow I use a lot of retired items, but I like them and seem to grab for what I know and like. I could fill a store with the SU! papers that I have. LOL Thanks a bunch for stopping by today. Why not hop over to The Crooked Stamper and join in on the fun. Leslie would love to have you visit and play along. Wishing you all a nice evening.

Hello this week is flying by. I planned every day to work on the Crooked Stamper Sketch Challenge #2 but today finally found the time to make a card for it. I had a lot of fun making this card mainly because I absolutely adore this Elisabeth Bell stamp and I found so much time that I colored two more in different colors for the boy's outfit. So you will see this stamp again throughout the year. I figured these could make good general cards or Christmas cards. I always think of a boy playing with trains on Christmas morning. I'm aging myself saying that, but it's true.
