Kraftin Kimmie Release Preview Day #1- All Aboard

Chooooo choooooo! ALL ABOARD!!
It's time for our February Release at...
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

This month all FOUR of our awesome new stamp sets are ALL ABOUT BOYS!!
Today we are kickin' off Day ONE with a sweet new set from artist Cheryl Grant and if you haven't guessed, it's called.....ALL ABOARD!
This sweet new features a large main image of Lucas and his puppy friend getting ready to ride the rails!!! What a fabulous set for boys birthdays and so much more! It also features FOUR awesome sentiments in a fun and funky font!

For my card, I decided to create something fun and whimsical.  First, I chose some bright train themed patterned papers, colored my image to match, and paper pieced the train with some fun polka-dots.  Then I die cut the image into a square and popped it on to several layers of the patterned paper.  I die cut a white cloud, turned it sideways, and used it for a puff of smoke coming out of the engine.  Then I stamped my sentiment in the corner and added some enamel dots.  
Here's a side view:

I just love this little set!  So perfect for any little boy!
