Happy Birthday

Today is my birthday......it's also my brother's birthday......not twins......born 3 years apart.....which when I was a child did not seem very good timing by my mother......I mean......who wants to share their birthday [and parties] with their younger brother.....but now I love it.....because it really is impossible to forget!!
My lovely and slightly eccentric brother doesn't do 'cute' at all [you can read a bit about him here if you're so inclined].......but he does do films......usually of the slightly more unusual variety.....and never on DVD.......he probably holds the world record for the size of his video collection. So a card using Graphic 45 seemed quite apt........and fits in with the 'red' challenge on Craft your Passion.
So.......another year older........I used to hate that.........but after our very sad event earlier this year.....I've decided to celebrate the fact that..........you can never have too many birthdays........the more you have......the longer you live.
And having been at work all morning........I'm now off to meet a friend.......we're going out for lunch....and then a wander round the quirky little shops in the Old Town......before our scrapbook get together this evening.
And many thanks to Pinky and KathyK for their beautiful cards.

Happy Birthday Dear Friend! I hope you have a terrific day and many, many, many more birthdays to come.
My son and my niece are both born on the same day in May (not the same year), and it's the day after my dad's birthday!
In March, my two sisters, one of my brothers and I all have birthdays within three weeks of each other.

Jackie, Happy Birthday--just a tad late! Love your brother's card.

Karen said...

A very happy birthday, Jacky! I hope you have a lovely day. I can imagine as a child sharing a birthday with your brother wouldn't have been much fun, but I'd sure like to share one with mine now--I can think of lots of ways to celebrate together. I'll be seeing mine for the first time in a year this weekend, and I'm really looking forward to it! Have a great day!
