Hey Chuggers!

Hi there. It has been raining here all week, but I will take that over snow. Well, I wanted to share a card I made for my youngest DD. She will be 4 in a few weeks, and is CRAZY about trains. So here is what I came up with.Isn't this guy adorable???!!! I just love Cocoa from Sweet 'n Sassy. This little guy will be available starting today in the Sweet 'n Sassy store. I printed this guy, and then printed a couple on some Echo Park papers too. I then did some paper piecing. I have never paper pieced digis before, but I found it easier then I thought! I colored the other parts of the image with marker. I added some stickles to the wheels, and the grate. Next I began the layering. All the PP is from Echo Park Little Girl Collection. The twill ribbon is from Maya Road. The sentiment I hand wrote. I know it sounds a bit strange, BUT...if you have a young child you may recognize that. My DD is crazy about Chuggington on Disney Junior...so it is from that. They call the trains Chuggers. This is for the following challenge:
Sweet 'n Sassy Customer Blog Hop - Think Spring - the colors are all bright and springy!
Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenge - Sketch with animal...mouse!
Simon Says Challenge - Anything Goes
Do You Stack Up? - Layers - lots of Echo Park layers here!
