To lift up my brother

Hi Everyone, thank you so much for all your lovely comments recently, I have tried to get around everyone, hope I haven't left anyone out, if I have I apologise and will try again tomorrow.

My card for today is one which was inspired by this one by Cynthia on the Create with TLC  blog,
 I haven't been able to access her blog, but if she sees this thank you.






I wanted a card for one of my dear brothers, number 2 of 4, who has been diagnosed with motor neurone, I'm afraid he is on a short lease and I send him a card as close to every week as I can, he lives a few hundred miles away so getting to see him is not often I'm afraid.  We can't communicate much anymore as he has lost his speech.  Anyhow thanks to Cynthia, I came up with this card after having the sentiment from Paulette at Create with TLC  blog.  I hope it lifted him as much as I wanted it too.


I shall enter the following challenge with it.

Once I get you up there where the air is rarified 
We'll just glide, starry-eyed 
Once I get you up there I'll be holding you so very near 
You may even hear a whole gang cheer 'cause we're together
