Choo Choo

A quick post...I think I know two munchkins who will love this card (and another one I will need to make just like it)... my two yr old grandson and the other that just turned three. They love Thomas the Train and all the other trains that go along with Thomas. They know them all by name and, believe me, there are several. I think their attention span and their memories are much better than mine. :-)

I watercolored a scene and used this adorable train from Mark's Finest Papers set called All Aboard!
I jusmade my clouds with scissors  just by cutting in a cloud shape and watercolored them. The sentiment and crossing signs are from MFP, too.
