Cyber Riley

This is my 2nd post. Though this is a Hanna Stamp, lol...my post for the Hanna Stamps Blog Hop is right under this one!

Yesterday was Brien's (my brother) birthday. I've always called him my little brother, but he's been bigger than me since I was 5, lol. He's 6'1 and I've always been jealous that he got the "tall" gene. I'm only 5'2. He's an Electrical Engineer and lives down in Portland. He's so good at math and loves computers. He actually owns 3 of them...and uses all of them. So, I thought this Riley would be perfect for him! :)

I wasn't able to go home for his birthday...but Myra, Brien's girlfriend, took this pic at my parent's house. Michael looks like he just woke up from a nap and Emily looks like she's telling Brien a really interesting story about the strawberry, lol. I miss them so!



Everyone have a good Tuesday! Go Blue Team! I'm sorry, but I just love Bob! :)

  11. okay, this is scary... we have so much in common it's not even funny! My brother is an electrical engineer as well, and has 3 computers, too! Maybe more, but 3 for sure. I just saw him this weekend and he was telling me all about his current project at work. He works for the laser optics division of Ratheon in AZ. That's about all I understand, lol.

    Super cute card, your brother is sure to love it!

  37. After reading your story I have to agree that that Riley fits your brother just right! You could even add a couple more in the background for fun! Super cute card, I really liked the colors you used. Masculine cards always stump me!
