It was my baby brother's birthday yesterday and this is the card I made for him. I initially thought of colouring a image to put on a card but just didn't have the right thing in my collection. So googled for some inspiration and saw a pinwheel. I have been wanting to have a go at one of these for ages so that is how the card came about.
My brother turned 35, he is much much younger than me. His daughters (8 and 6) are of an age now that they really get age and have been giving their Dad (my brother) and their Mum a hard time about how old they are now. My brother and his wife have their birthdays exactly one week apart. So this time next week I should be showing you a card for her. Anyways the kids are asking their parents what it was like 'back in the olden days'. lol Scary thing is that these kids could talk to my daughter (16) and say the same thing 'like back in the olden days when there were tapes and videos' as they just have not grown up with these. Scary!
Okay, enough rambling the card I started with Stampin Up Garden Green and then used papers from the Bazzill Dino-Mite range. I ran the blue cardstock for the belly band through my Stampin Up Lattice embossing folder. The sentiment is a rub-on and I thought just fitting for what my brother is going through at this moment. On the inside I have added a pocket on each side to hold the scratchies/lottery tickets that I give to him. Finished with another rub-on sentiment.
So happy today to you all. :-)
