My Favorite Things Previews, Day 2

Hi everyone!  It’s Day 2 of previews with My Favorite Things!   Teaser prizes continue so be sure to leave comments as you visit each blog.  You can find the complete list of participating DT members HERE after 11 a.m. EST. 

Today the team is sharing samples of three fun new sets, Fred Bear Goes Fishing, Emma Playing Mommy and Wyatt the Conductor.   My husband and son are big on trains so I went with Wyatt.  :)

I Think You Can


This adorable set comes with Wyatt, the train (in three separate pieces) and three cute sentiments.  (I stamped this one twice.)


I colored Wyatt with markers, giving him dirty knees as most boys have, and I linked the train cars together, adding a little pull string with a ball (brad) at the end.  My son had a blue train like this so in making this card I’ve had a little “awwww…” moment.


On the inside, I stamped the three train cars together in black ink.
