Little blue train

Hello all, I hope you are all having a lovely weekend. In true UK style our Bank Holiday weekend has so far been a bit of a washout here-the sun is promised a bit for tomorrow so fingers crossed. I just know it will be back to sunny and warm when we all go back to work on Tuesday though!!
I've tried three times to sit and write up this post but each time I try, one or the other of the family calls me for something-the last call was to act as taxi to my son so he could go meet his mates in town. Hopefully now all is calm and I can get this done in the one sitting-, I often wonder if any other mums find their crafting always takes a back seat to everything else going on in the house?? I'm honestly amazed I ever find any time to do anything crafty at all!!
My card today was made for a colleague at work to give to her Grandson. She told me he had very particular likes so I was asked to use a train image and to use his favourite colour of blue. The wording was also at her request. I really hope Ozden is pleased with it when he sees it.
The image was a free clipart image which I coloured with my Promarkers and I layered it with some blue papers from my stash. I cut out some puffs of smoke for the train and added his age on them too.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
