One For My Brother!

I have a bit of a special card to share with you all today, Ok it looks just like any card but this is the card that I made for my brother for his 44th birthday last Friday.......its special because, by his own admission, its a birthday that he spent a lot of last year thinking he might not get too.  We think he is a bit of a super-hero because of the way he has fought against cancer (note, the little c here, it doesn't deserve a capital letter!) Bless his heart, he still has a long way to go, but all of his treatment and operations so far have been highly successful, he is gaining weight nicely and is managing what he is and isn't allowed to eat. He hopes, at some point, to be able to be to work with the hospital in supporting patients during the difficult early stages of their illness.......and I think he will be blooming good at it!
I was lucky enough to win this image from A Random Fan in a recent FB draw, it was love at first sight too, he is coloured with promarkers. The sentiment is printed directly onto Kraft, the dotty paper is from Bo Bunny. Buttons and twin from stash.

I would like to enter this into:
a random fan - birthdays
sentimental sundays - card for a man/boy
sweet stampin - inspired by book/film title 2nd entry (when I first saw this digi image the first thing that came to my mind, was a book my son used to love...Captain Underpants!
creative corner - button up

thanks for visiting today.....sending you biggest of hugs xx
