I've had a fondness for trains since I was a little girl probably because my grandfather worked for the Missouri Pacific Railroad and because I'd been to Union Station in St. Louis many times to take or pick up relatives who were traveling. Trains were still hanging on then as the main mode of transportation. I can remember standing on the walkway in between the big trains and seeing them pull in under the shed. Sometimes we got to get on the train with our visitor until the train was ready to leave. It was the way my family and relatives all traveled back then (and before my time) rather than driving in a car or flying in a plane.
This one little card I made drudged up all those memories!

There are so many cute projects you could make with this Choo Choo stamp set. If you don't mind some cutting with your Paper Snips (they make intricate cutting easier!) you can make the train look 3-D by cutting out some or all of the cars. Think of what a cute little wall plaque in a frame you could make for a little boy's (or girl's) room!
