I have teamed the ABSC#041 up with the Colour Q #99, a beautiful blend of 'Happy' colours

I made this card for my little brother, who would have turned the BIG 40 today . 
Although he is not here to share it with us, we will be celebrating on his behalf with a family dinner tomorrow night, I know that he will be with us in spirit, as he is each and every day!

This is my favourite picture of Ross and I, so happy and filled with mischief !!

This is my card just for him, 'Happy Birthday' Ross!!
