The star is a clear, acrylic star that was colored yellow with alcohol inks. I used my piercer to punch two small holes into it, allowing me to thread the jute through it and the button.

Not sure if I am loving the card, but after placing and replacing everything for 2 days, eh, just glue it down! :) Our weekend was fun-we took the little man on a real train ride. It was my first train ride too! The train runs along the shore of Lake Superior. They hooked all sorts of train cars up to the engine so you could walk between them. (baggage, dinner, passenger, double-decker, bud car) The coolest thing was taking a photo of my son and my dad in front of the engine. It was a DM&IR engine. Reason it was special is because, my grandfather was an electrical engineer for the railroad. My dad grew up in the intersection of 3 rail lines. My grandfather never met my son, but part of him lives on in my son's love of trains. We all cried. Oh those happy/sad moments that make life meaningful. thanks for stopping by!
