Stampin' Up! My Hero for My Brother!

Hey there! My big brother, Don, turned 76. He was an 18 year-old high school senior the day I arrived. He went to football practice and told the guys he had a new baby sister. They didn't believe him!

My mom was sick a lot, passing away when I was almost 11. My brother and his wife took care of me, sometimes several weeks at a time, during my mom's final battle with lung/brain cancer. He helped me continue in school, giving me support when I was lonely. My big brother is truly my hero.

I CASED a  birthday card by Julie Pitta, changing and adding a few things of my own:


I used the My Hero Ronald McDonald House Charities set, which is retiring, and Best Badge Punch.

I punched a Crumb Cake Best Badge, cutting in half before adhering. I stamped a Dapper Denim "#1" on Crumb Cake, punched with the 1/2" Circle, and adhering with a dimensional. I added snippets of  5/8" Burlap Ribbon and coming-soon-in-the-new-catalog 1/4" Copper Trim!


Using the Timeless Textures cross-hatch image, I stamped-off Sahara Sand on both Real Red and Dapper Denim strips, then stamped CELEBRATE with Real Red on the Real Red strip and Dapper Denim on the Dapper Denim strip.


Inside I stamped Stylized Birthday with Dapper Denim and more stamped-off CELEBRATE's.
