Whiff of Joy - Christmas Train

Oh wow - how cute is this stamp? It is called Christmas train and is a Whiff of Joy release from September and if you like it you can find it here. As soon as I saw my friend and DT sister Jane use the image I had to have it too, lol. I've teamed the cute image with one of the fantastic sentiments from the Season's Greetings set.

Those glittery gold stars are something I've had in my stash since.... well forever! They are actually just plain wood and I've covered them in stickles. So sparkly! The sketch is one of Chelsea's fantastic sketches from CLP Challenges. She has the most wonderful sketches.

Cupcake Crafts challenge this week is Boys and their toys and I thought this fit perfectly! My little boys loooove trains at the moment. I've been thinking about getting them a train set for Christmas. I can hear the squeals now!

  17. I bought this stamp as soon as it was released and still haven't used it!! And now that my son has stolen it from me for the 15th time, he thinks it is for him since it has a train on in, truth be told, I can't find it, lol!! That's okay though, I can just come over here and drool over your fabulous work to make up for the loss, lol!!
    hugs, stephanne
