Double Trouble Challenge #37

Today I used the inspiration from Double Trouble Challenge, The Paper Girls Challenge, and Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge to make a birthday card for my older brother.

When I think of my older brother, 
there are several things that make me happy. 
I am happy I am not as old as he is!
I am happy I am not allergic to nuts, like he is!
I am really happy I do not have as many whiskers on my chin as he does! 
He's an okay older brother and I wish him the best on his upcoming birthday.

The theme at Double Trouble Challenge #37 is fall things with an option of including a sweet treat.  Yes, the stores are full of pumpkin this and pumpkin that, most of which are sweet and delicious.  But, for me, fall means apples.  I have some awesome apple recipes, and it's time to pull them out and get baking! 

DTC has partnered with The Paper Girls for Challenge #37.
 The Paper Girls Challenge #183 is about the things you love about fall.

And finally, here is this week's Mojo Monday Sketch
