This particular stamp in this set reminded me of a book I loved when I was a child of a train that had to try so hard to get over the mountain to deliver its load of candy and toys to the children in the valley below, the Little Engine that Could! So I made a candy train for my card, hope you like it! Thanks for looking and happy hopping, good luck!

When I think of a train I think of a boy. How great is it that you made this stamp work for a girl. I love the buttons you added to the card. This is such a cute card.

This is sooo cute. I would never have thought to make a little girl card with this image but it works so beautifully.

This image looks great stamped in white. And your DPs go so well with it. It makes a card that would be suitable for a little girl. I like the cluster of buttons in the corner.

You've shown how versatile this stamp set is by making a softer, more feminine version with ease! I love your choice of DP and all the candy, ice cream cones and button accents! So sweet!

My first thought was of the little engine that could when I saw this set Peggysue. But I could never have pulled it off as well as you did.
Awesome job!!!
