Aiden My Engineer...

Happy Monday and March to everyone! I hope everyone had a great week end and are ready to take on the coming week. I had wonderful week end. We took Aiden and Emma Ice Skating for the first time. Of course I took all kind of pictures. Grandma watched. They loved every minute. Now they have what is called a bucket you take with you. This is there first time on skates. They did not have buckets when I was little. I loved to ice skate, we lived right next to the ice rink when I was growning up. My son and my daughter-in-law really did a wonderful job.
The challenge for The Cards for Men this time is Paper Piecing. The sponsor this month is The Stamping Boutique. If you would like to see any of there images click here and check them out. You need to go to Card For Men and sign up with Mr Linky and you can do that by clicking here. Once you do that your card is do March 14. You have a chance to win some of Traceys wonderful (5) images or (3) rubber stamps at The Stamping Boutique. That is a wonderful gift. The images I used is "Train" and "AJ the Engineer". Also ABC Challenges is having a challenge for Paper Piecing. If you would like to check what is going on over there click here.
I used a scrapbook paper I found that looked like an out door scene and lined up my image "train" to print where I wanted it to print. I printed it out several times on different colors of paper and cut the pieces of the track out and the train and glued them over the printed areas. I did the same with the "engineer". I did go over the colored paper with some of my copic markers to give the colors a little shading. I used Gelly Roll Pens and At You Spica Pens to give a little sparkle. I also sprayed some glitter spray from Flora Craft. The punched out the bottom border with Martha Steward train punch. Used a RR Sign, butterfly sticker and the 3D train on the top was a sticker also. I add to really small buttons to Aiden pants. The Raccoon is a button.
I hope you enjoy my card. Have a wonderful week.
