This is the final day of the blog hop. Hope you've enjoyed hopping with us this week.  Today, we are featuring the Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company stamp set called Train Talk. Isn't this the cutest train? There are more on this set and wonderful sentiments, too.
I made my banner by cutting a black strip of paper and using my scissors to cut out the 'v' shape. I've colored with Copics and used black and white houndstooth behind my image panel. Very easy and quick. This sentiment is great for those belated birthdays...the ones where we go 'oops'. :-)

Be sure to check out the rest of the team's cards, leave a comment, and hopefully you'll be a winner.

I see two things on here that are very you: the houndstooth, and the trains-that-your-son-loves (I know the second one is not so much about you, but your flesh and blood!). Is this going to him?

Cute card, love the colored train. Guess the train pulled out behind schedule to be late. A perfect belated birthday card.
