Which is a total bummer.
But, don't get me started...'cuz nobody invited the drama llama to come play today.
So here is the card I made for the almost-seventeen-year-old, Eric. Eric is a gamer dude. He loves characters from many different video games. So, I decided to feature one of them on his card. I chose Sonic. I like his hair (or whatever it is). He's cool looking. I could have just as easily chosen Link from the Zelda series...I know Eric likes Link. Heck, he dressed up as Link for Halloween like 8 years in a row. Each year his costume was a little different to reflect Link's changing look. My sister spent countless hours making his costumes. They were all fabulous.
But, today he gets Sonic.
Because, I like his hair.
Oh...I said that already, didn't I?
Here's his card. I found a line drawing of Sonic somewhere on the internet, printed it out on white cardstock and colored it in with my trusty Prismacolor Pencils. I fussy-cut the sucker out and paper-toled him to create a very dimensional Sonic. I dug up some VERY old chipboard letters and used a pre-cut frame which I outlined in hand-cut red cardstock.. Finished it up with some random embellishments, brads, Punchinella and ball chain. You guys know by now...I make very lumpy cards and scrapbook pages. I may be flat...but my artwork isn't.
Happy Birthday, Eric!!!
