Steam Engine

Hi Everyone, my card today was for our Great Nephew, Yep! we are a large extended family. They made a visit the other day and I was told he has a great interest in Steam Engines. When I told him my 3 elder Brothers had been Firemen on the Engines, my esteem in his eyes was doubled LOL. He wanted to know how long they worked on them etc etc, it was lovely to see such interest and enthusiasm in our history.

This is such a great card Faith, and it's wonderful to see the younger generation taking such an interest in what their ancestors enjoyed! Love the inside sentiments! Bet he loved this card too :)

Great card Faith, coincidentally I spent a lot of time yesterday trying to design a train for the Cameo as a friend of ours who is a steam fanatic has his 70th birthday soon, once addicted they don't seem to grow out of it !! Love the verse and sentiment too x
