Grandpa has a birthday and I have art supplies. Yes that’s right, Grandpa got art for his birthday. Originally this was to be a card but after it was finished I couldn’t bear the thought of it not hanging around. I thought of making it a card and then displaying it later but I’m just not that industrious.
I picked up a couple of these frames ages ago at a clearance sale. I thought the simplicity of the sentiment was set off nicely by the simplicity of the frame.
Now if you’d like to play along I found this lovely little print free from Tried & True. My version is slightly different. I first resized the print to 50% and then used my lightbox to trace the design. I eliminated a few things here and there and slightly changed the lines but honestly only two people would probably even notice that. She has lots of great variations on her blog.
And with that I’m off to eat some cake in honor of my beloved’s birthday. Also because I like cake.
Until next time…
