Birthday Friendship ♥ (Carriers of Faith/Cornish Heritage Farms)

What a special day today is ...  
 Today our little man is 10 years old!
Our 'baby' of the family is turning another year old,
joining his 3 big sisters in the "double digits" category!
Though he is far from little .. I'm a wee 5'3" and he's already
passing my chin in height :)
Such an incredible little gentlemen he is,
with such compassion for the world, a gentle soul and incredibly bright
and funny ~ oh, how he makes me laugh on a daily basis!
 I'm blessed to be his mommy ♥
So imagine how practical it was that today is the day
 the Cornish Heritage Farms posts our challenge cards with a theme by Amber:  Boy/Masculine themed birthday cards.  Perfect!
And ...it's also the 9th of the month,
 which is the day that Carriers of Faithpost our cards, too
~ this month, our hostess is Jeanette.
Her challenge this month is a friendship card with the scripture
of Ecclesiastes 4:9-12.
In our home, we are very close to our children and they to each other
(though I must confess 3 teenage daughters was so not as fun as
I'd imagined it would be, LOL!).
Most of all, they are amazing with their little brother
and I'd imagine that if one falls down, they'll help the other up
as He intended for us to do with our brethren ♥
The scripture tells us that if one is overpowered, two can defend
themselves but a cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
I imagine my 4 together and hope that their close bond will be forever!

So, here's my card!
I used a digi from Cornish Heritage Farms called Teddy
