Cool Choo Choo Train, Right on Track

I just love this stamp set and co-coordinating wheel, available from the Spring Mini Catalogue.

Stampin up 060

These are so versatile, they can be used for Birthday cards or Baby cards. The wheel makes a cool winding track and could also be used as a farm fence.
