Happy Birthday

My adorable niece Becky really liked my previous attempt at semi-scene stamping and she has lovingly badgered me into having another go at it.  This card is for a six-year-old whose yet-to-be formed artistic perceptions will probably slide right by my yet-to-be formed skills with this art form . . .

One of Becky’s successful ploys involved gifting me with the adorable bicycle stamp for my birthday two weeks ago.  Nothing would do but to make a happy scene for my grandson who absolutely loves the color green.  He’ll totally love it.  Thanks, Becky!

  1. And, I absolutely LOVE it! Am just seeing this post for the first time tonight .... and when I scrolled down and saw those big fluffy, white clouds I about shrieked with joy. And, then I really shrieked with joy because you'd incorporated my bicycle stamp. I love all the colors and different textures.... love how the flag turned out! Is that fabric? And real stitching? Did you stamp the happy birthay on it? So many questions ... which means you did a mighty finee job! Bravo dear Aunty, bravo!!
