I’m late with my brother-in-law’s birthday card (he’s a Dec. 23rd baby and it never fails that my brain is otherwise occupied). I’m still in love with Mo Manning’s digi stamps and used another for this card. So far they’ve been the best Christmas present I bought for myself!
Julian works for the railroad and received his engineer’s certificate (now sure what it’s called, but he’s legal to drive the choo-choos). I debated making a ‘nice’ card or one that shouts the fact it was his 40th birthday; but since mine is quickly approaching; I opted for being nice. I’ll let my hubby write a ‘special’ comment on the inside of the card. (Please see the Ins and Outs for links to the challenge websites and feel free to join in the fun).
