Engine

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

  3. 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

  8. 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!
