It's Hump Day!! ( as so many of you say LOL )

Hi everyone! I am long retired and when I worked I don't remember the expression 'hump day', but I do understand that it means a great deal. Half the work week is over and come ON weekend~~ I hope you have all survived your back to work week thus far.

Today I made another Birthday Card - this one for my brother. I wanted to explain that so you will know why I picked the stamp I did LOL

He had a heart attack at the beginning of December and an operation and is recuperating now as well as having many appointments at the doctors for tests etc. He KNOWS how much I love him, but I wanted to remind him.....Also wanted to make a very bright and cheery card for January.

I almost felt I over did it for a man's card so the inside is simple:

Stamp: Kissieface from 'Bella'
Design Paper: Creative Imagninations
Card Stock: SU Pacific Point, Green Galore
Sentiments: Front = clear sticker ? Inside = SU 'Full of Life'
Punch: SU = Modern Label
Buttons: My stash
Ribbon: SU
Colouring: Copics

I hope you have enjoyed this one and will see you again real soon.
Love, Candy

Candy, sorry to hear about your brother. Wishing him all the best and a speedy recovery. I am sure he knows how much you love him and looking at this card there is a lot of love that went into the making of it. You've picked the perfect image for it. And beautifully coloured in 'manly colours'? Terrific card!
