Cool Choo Choo Train, Right on Track

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

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.

A while ago my lovely up-line Vicki sent me a beautiful birthday card. Using the Fifth Avenue Floral Stampin’ Up! stamp set on white glossy card. Doesn’t it look gorgeous?  And the added zing of Dazzling Diamonds glitter just sets it off lovely.
