- originally he was getting a Star Wars card. He was here the day I got my "Galactic Friends" stamps and seemed to really want one of those for his birthday.
- then, we got him a "zombie" video game as a birthday present. So, I thought...I should do a zombie card
- then, the theme for his birthday dinner was announced - BACON! Dearly beloved felt that meant I needed to do a card that involved bacon. He thought I should try to make it look like bacon. HAVE YOU EVER TRIED TO DO THIS? I had an idea in my head and all, but ...well, just wasn't getting it so...
I think the "Reuse" paper has a bit of a bacon-y feel don't you? Anyway, that's what I came up with - and I used Sunday Sketch #11 from PaperWorksCo. I just rotated it to fit the image.
