Funny birthday card for a senior citizen

Happy 86th Birthday, Mom!!

Mom makes no bones about it, she’s not as fleet of foot as she once was. But, then, she is 86 and had open-heart surgery a year ago. She’s got a great sense of humour and we joke with her all the time about the trials and tribulations of being a senior citizen–the lighter side of getting old. So, for her birthday, which is on Halloween, I just had to make her a funny card. Can’t wait to give it to her tomorrow!! (I know I could have made her a witchy card, but we’ve been there and done that!!). For you Copic-lovers, I used my Copic markers to colour these funny characters. I created the text in Silhouette Studio and printed it on this wonderful patterned paper.

Here is the front of the card. Scroll down to see the inside panels.

Here’s a close-up of the birds…the stripes on the blue bird and the polka dots on the green bird were created with my Copic colourless blender. It’s such an easy technique to take your colouring from flat to fantastic!

And, the back panel…I never leave it unfinished.

I hope this gives you some ideas for a funny card of your own. Thanks, for stopping by. Please come back soon!

So many ideas, so little time…sigh!
