Anyway, he can act goofy with the best of us, and I LOVE that about him, so I decided to cut a Goofy image for his birthday card.
I love this image of Goofy. It's so classic and takes me back to watching Disney cartoons in the 60s. Goofy is tall and lanky (for a toon), like my son-in-law, and is always involved in one caper or another. I cut Goofy at 3.5 inches from the Mickey & Friends cartridge. The tiny cuts for his teeth were sooooooo small that I used a white gel pen, instead, to color them in.
He was rather fiddly to put together - with all his different layers and pieces - but I think he turned out looking like the real Goofy! Goofy was always my favorite of Mickey's cohorts, so it was fun to revive him on paper.
Here you can see how I popped Goofy up on some foam squares to give him a little added dimension.
Thanks for dropping by today. I hope you liked my "Goofy" birthday card.
It's Saturday, and I'm looking forward to catching up on lots of things around the house, planting some more flowers, doing some mega-grocery shopping (the cupboards are pretty bare) and maybe even relaxing a little.
Remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day. It's good for your soul. And when you have a son-in-law like I do, that's an easy thing to do. Have a wonderful weekend!
