Baby Brother's Birthday

There are four birthdays in a nine day span in my family (I count BFF as family), so I've been a card-making whirlwind these past couple of weeks.  Add in Halloween cards for three grandkids, the samples I'm making for card classes and workshops, Thanksgiving, my son's birthday immediately after Thanksgiving, and then Christmas, and you begin to get the idea.

This one of for my little brother, who lives in Alaska.  I believe he's turning the big five-oh this year.  I was kind and didn't rub it in, although I do have the Golden Oldies set (now retired), and was really tempted!

  1. What a gorgeous masculine card. I struggle at getting cards that aren't too girly. It's beautiful and I know he will love it (and appreciate the non-mention of the milestone!).

  2. Wowzers, what a stunning card! He will love it.
