Superstar Sibling

If there's one area in my life I feel truly blessed, it's my family - in this instance I'm speaking of my parents & 2 younger siblings - we are incredibly close, extremely supportive & fiercely protective of each other!

I have made the following card for my brother - he is a true gentlemen in every sense of the word & absolutely adored by myself, our Sister & Mother. My children love him so much and on his part, he can barely go a few days without wanting to see them (I'm actually welling up!)....

Recipe (all PTI): Stamps - Star Prints & Men of Life / Paper - 2008 Bitty Star Basics / Cardstock - Ocean Tide, Aqua Mist & True Black / Ink Pad - True Black / Other - Spellbinder Nestabilities

Thanks for listening to my sentimental babble (lol) & enjoy your Friday!

Love Stephanie xxx

Steph you've got me all teary eyed *blub*! I have 3 brothers and we're all very protective of each other too! In fact, I think my big brothers protect me a little too much at times LOL!
Been playing with your NEW PTI goodies I see?! Love that stamp set, and the papers too. Can't wait to play with my new goodies - I'm jealous you've managed to have a play already!
