For Farmer Waldo...

Today I had lots of thoughts of my younger days.  Thinking about my daughter soon being nine years old... I realized my niece was nine when my daughter was born.  They share the same birth date.  :-)  That also made me realize my sister and I are nine years apart as well.  My thoughts then went to younger days.  And I thought again of my Uncle who had a farm that we use to love visiting.  Every since Theresa Momber released her "Farm Life" set, I have had thoughts of him.  

Much to my surprise he came by my office about a week ago.  I told him then I was going to send him something and he should watch his mail.  My card today is for him.  (P.S.  His name really isn't Waldo, but I call him that.  He has always given all his nieces and nephews "nick names" so I gave him one.  Mine is "Tina Leena"... which I can't complain about because he named my dad, "Mupsound"... LOL  I have no idea what that means! LOL)

My card base is Gina K's Pure Luxury Heavy Base Weight Kraft.  I used DP from the October Afternoon "Thrift Shop" paper pack.

I stamped my image in Memento Rich Cocoa on Pure Luxury Layering Weight White card stock and used my Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Antique Linen to cover the paper and make it appear a bit older. 

I hope he likes it and it reminds him of his old farm like it does me.  I promised to stop by to visit and bring the kids.  He likes to take them to Dairy Queen since it's at the end of his street.  Not good for me since I'm dieting, but I guess that's why I go to the gym... to offset calories. :-)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!! *smile*

Enjoyed your memories today, Tina! And you're right, Tina Leena is a fairly tame nickname, considering! I know your uncle is going to treasure this card!
