Electrician birthday card...

I thought I would stop in right quick and share a card I made back in January.  My husband and I have a friend who is an electrician so I made this for his birthday..

I found an outlet shape and made a cut file out of it.  The little brad I have had forEVER....from back in the scrapbooking days!  :)  I thought this turned out kinda fun!  And Jake loved it!

Hope you are having a happy Thursday!  Thanks for stopping in!
