All Aboard the Love Train!!

Hi friends!!  It's time for a new Sketch Challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2!!  This week we are Sponsored by Fresh Brewed Designs!!  I'm excited by that for so many reasons!!!  I love their images and I love coffee AND I think the Owner Heather is pretty sweet too!!
Fresh Brewed DesignsI chose the cool image Love Train Mouse with the equally cool sentiment!!  When my son was little he LOVED trains!!  Right now we are waiting for my son and his wife's first baby to arrive, my first Grandson!!  I'm thinking he is quite comfortable as he is a handful of days overdue right now... Something tells me it won't be long now and soon enough I will be up in the attic retrieving my son's trains for the two of them to enjoy together!!

For now, on with this week's Sketch...

And, my card...  All Aboard the Love Train!!
The paper is a retired pack from Close to My Heart.  The image is colored with Copics and I added a bit of paper piecing to the "heart" car...  I used a heart border die and finished the card off with some brads from my stash.

I hope you will head on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and check out the rest of the Design Team's cards.  So very awesome!!  I'm excited to say that each week we have had a few more join us which makes me smile!!  We on the Design Team LOVE to see all the amazing creations each week, so, why not play along??  We'll be glad you did!!  AND Heather is offering 3 Fresh Brewed Designs images to the Winner of our Challenge this week!! 

Thanks so much for stopping by, and be sure to check back often, there just may be a baby picture or two very soon!!!

Blessings to you!!


  1. Oooh, how exciting! A baby!! Please DO post pictures! How lucky that you are close enough to enjoy him. Loved your card this week. I like how you popped the smoke out of the frame of your image and the paper piecing was a stroke of brilliance. Great job

  2. I didn't realize this was going to be your first grand son.....You are in for a real treat. I love mine soo much. Your card will be perfect for when he arrives. Oh course, I love being a grandma!! I wish your family the best. Absolutely adorable card! Hugs, Nancy

  3. Congrats on the Grandson! How exciting. I kept my sons trains too, someday ( 10-15 years) I will be pulling them out for his kids to play with. Your card is adorable, great saying and cute iamge.
    Hugs, Heide

  4. I was just thinking about you and wondering if you had met your grandson yet... Still sending prayers and still sitting here so excited for you!
