Birthday Train

All Aboard!  It's Porter's fourth birthday (already??!) and he has asked for "a train to go around the tree" for his birthday.  I asked him what tree?  He said "the Christmas tree"... he wants a very pricey
Polar Express train for his birthday.  I asked him who he thought might give him this wonderful gift
for his birthday, and without batting an eye he said "Santa Claus!"  His Mom and I nearly cracked up!  We quickly informed him that Santa doesn't do birthdays, too.... so he told me Mommy would be getting him the train, then... Oh, the sweet faith of a four year old.  When I asked what he would like Nana and Papa to send him, he said "A Yo-Yo" .... whew, we get off easy! 

This is the card I made for my little Engineer.  The stamps are a favorite old set from Close To My Heart, and the paper is from DCWV Celebration Stack.

This is the inside.  The pennant is a moveable feature, so he can run it along the twine and point to the numbers.  The section along the bottom is a pocket which carries a gift card, so he can be the big brother and take his little sister out to lunch, and cash for going shopping for a yo-yo!!!

I will be linking to I{heart}2stamp.com for their sketch challenge this month.  I encourage you to give it a try. 

***Note:  I had announced that my UStream Class for Tuesday evening had been cancelled due to Bob the Babe's health situation.... however, I am more than happy to say that he has made a very unexpected turn for the BETTER and I should be able to have class tomorrow night!! 
I hope you will be able to join in for
50 Ways To Love Your Digis!! 
Just click on the blue icon in the upper right corner, log in, and you are in the class.

Happy crafting ~

Hi Betty. I am so happy Bob is getting better! I can't wait to talk to you at the Ustream class. I've missed you. So did they get Bob all figured out or is this a temporary reprieve? I hope he doesn't have any more problems.
