I made a card recently for my son's birthday. He's in his (gulp) 40s. I don't even want to think about how old that makes me!
It's sort of a whimsical (that sounds better than "silly," right?) card, and I hope it brought a smile to his face.
Here's a closer look at those glasses. You can see that I added a couple of tiny "screws" in each corner with a silver Viva Décor pen.
I happen to have some big green googly eyes in my stash. I thought they went nicely with the plaid DSP.
The eyebrows and smile were clearly hand drawn. :)
My sentiment was computer-generated, and I inked around the edges of the bow tie and added a little shading near the knot with a ProMarker.
The inside of this card is pretty plain because I knew I wanted to write a little longer personal note.
We don't give our grown children birthday gifts per se any longer. I make a card for each one, and then we make a donation to a charity we think they'd like to support.
If you have grown children, what do you do for their birthdays?
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
