Trains, fire engines and fabric!

Hi everyone, hope you have all had a great weekend!!!
I went to our local craft place today to get some thread for my sewing machine and the lady in the fabric shop offered me a rummage through the offcuts of fabric that she had!!!! Wow!!!! Loads of lovely patterned fabric offcuts.  I have used one on this card (fab trains) - am so pleased however I now have a whole bag full of small bits of fabric to iron lol....
This card is made with the fab Little Squirt image from Phindys Place.  
I know its not a train but I couldnt resist using it with this piece of fabric!!!
I coloured him with copics.  The card candi and sentiment are from Craftwork Cards.






I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Birthday Sundaes - Birthday and fall colours
Here come the boys - wheely nice
One Stop Craft - Anything Goes
