My card today is for my brother Ernest and will probably get to him late, again. I made this weeks ago but as usual I forgot to get it in the mail. Ernest thinks its funny that I still call him my little brother but no matter how old we get he will always be that to me. I was only four but I have a vivid picture of the day Mom and Dad brought him home. In my minds eye I can see them getting out of Grandpa’s shinny new ‘51 Ford. Dad was beaming with pride, this was his name sake and Mom was tired but smiling from ear to ear. The Ford was black and Ernest was bright pink, almost red. To this day his ears still turn bright pink when he is embarrassed and the sight of it always makes me laugh and takes me back to the first time I ever saw him.
I found the barbed wire on the web. I printed it and my sentiment on a scrap of craft card stock. A book plate tied with a bit of raffia layered on a scrap of denim paper and bandanna ribbon. The stamp is from a retired Stampin’ Up set called Mini Horses. I’ve used Spellbinders Label Three again.
Have an Amazing Weekend!
