Trains 101

My son, Aiden is not into Thomas the Train or trains in general. So, I am a little dumb when it comes to Thomas the Train and his locomotive friends. On Monday it was our nephew's 5th birthday and we asked him what he wanted and he kept saying "Henry". I'm thinking a Hemi?? Some type of truck.....needless to say he educated me on Thomas and all of his locomotive friends. I headed off to Target to find "Henry"......I found out Henry is a green engine, my first guess would have been red. I soon found out "James" is red. Aiden now wants to know more and before I know it he'll be into trains!! I guess now I'll be tracking down a Thomas the Train DVD.

I wanted to make a special card and I thought about my new Choo Choo Stamp set I just got out for the Occasions Mini. I got excited and wanted the card to match Henry....but you know me a plain green train isn't that exciting! So, I had to spice it up a little! I hope he enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it. This card was inspired by two cards on splitcoast that I meshed together....by MacKenzie & rgardengloves. (Thank You)
