He'll Always Be My "Baby" Brother

My "baby" brother, Evan, turned 19 today...19! I vividly remember the day he was born...waiting in the lobby with my uncle, eating Wendy's and waiting to hear if I had a brother or a sister. And now...he's finished with his first year of college and he's 19...19!

Isn't he handsome...I think so!

I made him a card. He actually called me to remind me of his birthday while I was making the card. I laughed a little inside...I could never forget that day.

Here's the card (and I would show you the inside but after I took these the camera died, sniff):

I used my Bitty Birthday stamp set and my new Designer Series Paper (DSP) that I got from the SU clearance rack (there's some good stuff on there).

When I was done with the card there seemed to be something missing and so I decided to add a piece of ribbon. Usually when I add ribbon I attach it and wrap it around the paper before I adhere it to the card. But since I was already done I just added a strip on top and you can see above why I usually wrap it around the paper...the ribbon was just a little short. I still like the card and I hope he likes it too!

Happy Birthday Baby Brother...I love you!

Very cute! And I love your card too btw. : ) I don't think he'll mind that the ribbon is too short. I love the colors!!!

Oh, and now I'm craving a Wendy's spicy chicken sandwich, fries and a frosty. : )

That's so funny that he called! He must have felt that some one was thinking of him.
