Brother's birthday

I only have one sibling who is a younger brother.  I saw him this past weekend and gave him his present, but his card was not finished.  Unfortunately, life has been a little crazy lately.  My husband has been having a lot of side effects from the cancer treatment and has needed to go to the emergency room a couple of times so he is now on a couple week break from the cancer treatment to try to re-group.  Now we are starting to notice some reverse side effects.  It is interesting and complicated living with the chronic treatments of cancer.

Hi Lisa, I am sorry to hear about your husband. I am a cancer survivor and found the side effects of the meds to be worse than the disease. I wish you and your husband all the best.

I love your card. I like how you paired the two black patterned papers together. Wonderful card.
