He always enjoys getting my cards. When he was a little boy, he loved doing crafts and knows how much time goes into creating. I learned today from my sis that Tommy has kept all the birthday and christmas cards I have sent to him over the years. Awww...that made my heart smile!
He likes vintage things, and this old typewriter reflects the way work used to be done, not like computers now-a-days.

I used stamps from Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps "Office 101". On a small ledger sheet, I punched holes on the edge to look like a refill sheet, stamped the background images in TH Pumice Stone distress ink, and shaded the edge with Tea Dye distress ink.
The typewriter is embossed with ultra fine black EP, and shaded on the edge with Tea Dye DI, raised up with pop-dots.
Ticket tag is a Tim Holtz stamp. I circled Tommy's birthday date, and numbered it 25.
I downloaded a vintage typewriter keys graphic and printed out the sheet on cardstock on my printer. Then punched out the letters T, O, M with a one-half inch punch. Swiped over the letters with Tea Dye DI, and then covered with Stampin'Up Crystal Effects. They look like stickers.
Background dotted paper was edged with an EK Success punch, and I placed a brad at the top. I thought it resembled a type key.
I'm entering the card into the challenge at "Cards 4 Guzs, Happy Birthday".
