He recently had neck surgery and STILL was the first one out and last one in when we were all working on the property to get grass cut and everything 'prettied up' before my wedding.
I can say, he is amazing and did so much work, kept everyone motivated (a little beer goes a LONG way in this family!) and basically was the brawn of the bunch when it came to making sure the place looked perfect for my big day.
I didn't get to spend much time with him or my mom on my wedding day, because I was so busy talking to family and friends, and being in my own wedding.
I've known that I needed to and wanted to make him a cool card, and I get my gypsy and create a critter this afternoon, but I wanted to make sure I could give it to him before we all leave for Maui.
Basically, all of the siblings are going and my mom and step dad since it is my step brothers wedding. I'm not sure what I can put in the card to give him a little gift, since he is another one of those men with everything. If he doesn't have it yet, it is because he doesn't want it... and if he wants it he just buys it!
I was looking to make a more masculine card, and not as whimsical as I normally would. I also knew I wanted to make an Easle Card. You can see a tutorial for an Easle Card over here on Canadian Nickle Scrap'n.
Anywhoo- I love how this turned out, and I'm thinking that we will just have to take him and my mom out on our own while we're in Maui for a special dinner or something to say a big thank you for helping with the wedding. They were so much more amazing and helpful that I could have dreamed of! LOVE YOU MOMMA & NICK!
