Hi Everyone, a card today I have done for my eldest Brother who was a Fireman on the old Great Western Railway in the Age of Steam! He told me it was his SPECIAL birthday, I said "that was last year, when you were 80", he said "NO! everyone is special, as I will have reached it by dodging the Grim Reaper" LOL.

I have used the Outlawz sketch of this week, which I turned

Unibal gold glitter pen on embossed lines
Buttons First Edition Die
 Brother was cut on the Cameo
black ribbon used for both.
DP's Karen Lewis Designz

Loved the memories of your Brother and his Steam Train Days x You've created the perfect card for him and love how you've popped in the word Big before Brother x

What a fantastic card, Faith! My children both adored 'Thomas the Tank Engine' - I remember my son bursting into tears when he realised there were no more steam engines! Though I can't say I miss the smuts when the train went into a tunnel and we had to leap up and close the windows!!!

love Mags B x

Your brother has a fine sense of humor. Usually it's men who are infatuated by trains, but I am one also. My uncle worked the train in our state down to Florida each day...very long trip....doing the mail. Anyway, great card for your brother's special day...which as he says....everyday!

Your brother has a great sense of humor as well as a great attitude about life! I'm sure he loved this card with the gold accents, because it's really cool :)

What a great die cut, Faith! I need to get that one since I have a grandson who is absolutely crazy about trains in all forms. :-D

Obviously that crazy sense of humour of yours runs in the family. Such a gorgeous card and very wise words from your brother.
