Card for Michael

I am finally making another card for my dear brother!  I wanted to send him flowers or something to let him know I was thinking of him.  Barb told me that he said he didn't want flowers,  balloons or a stuffed animal and for me to send nothing!  Well, I decided I would send all three on a card.  I picked this little Popcorn Bear stamp because of all the balloons he is holding.  With the balloons and the bear, I have covered two of the three "do not send" items.  I will work on the flower thing with a future card or project for him.  lol  The patterned papers are from my new pad I bought from LOTV.  I really love their papers!   I inked and sewed the edges.  The little banners are from a Whimsy die and glued to some homemade twine.  The circles for the sentiment are from Quikutz and the sentiment is from Clear Dollar stamps. I fussy cut around the bear and balloons and then popped  him off the ovals cut from Spellbinder dies.   I think my brother will get a kick out of this card.  At least I hope it will lift his spirits while he is in the hospital.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hugs to all and God bless.
