Hope this finds you all in fine spirits and health and totally ready fro the weekend. I'd like to say that on a weekend I get a sleep in , but as my body clock seems to be set for 5:15 and I don't need an alarm during the week I rarely do sleep in so the weekend days start for me just like any other. I also find I generally have less time to craft than during the week unless there is a grand prix race on and then I get some definite time for me to craft.
I made this card after rifling through my ready to colour images and as mum needs a birthday card for my sisters partner later this month I thought it perfect. He hates being called my brother in law as they are so not the marrying kind, find it very funny since they have been together getting on for 20 years but hey ho. Anyway Tony will be 52 and extremely sensitive about his age, probably as he is 6 or 7 years older than my sis. He is a hoarder and collector of anything he thinks might be useful to somebody or worth something one day, he comes home with boxes full of books and drives my sister mad. Not sure why this image felt right but I'm sure he will find it amusing and as it will be from mum to him if he doesn't I won't get any flack.
I'll look to see if I made a note of the digi designer I did marji's malarkies. I decided to keep the colour scheme fairly plain and went with the layout from The Pixie cottage. The potty is coloured with sakura pen and the rest with Promarkers. I for some reason printed this on photo paper and discovered it's not great for blending my Promarkers on, but I think it's passable. The dotty paper wasn't quite the right red so I went over with the same red sakura pen so it all matches now.
I've not yet added a sentiment as not sure what mum will want, just happy birthday or something like 'take it as read' and then inside 'that you are wished a very happy birthday' well I thought it was clever but never know with mum and the customer is always right, so it's up to her.
