Birthday Card for Tim


 

This is a birthday card for my son, Tim.  He turns twenty-six tomorrow.  Tim is a film major at Arizona State University.  He used to dress exactly like this when he was in high school.  I just couldn't resist this image.  He had at least five or six three piece suits and a huge collection of fedoras and other hats.  Very frequently he would go to school dressed in a suit and tie with a matching fedora.  He just had to be different.  Still does!  Only now, as a starving college student, he can't quite afford the elaborate outfits.  He hopes to write and direct movies someday.


 
 The image is by Kenny K.  I found the filmstrip and movie clapboard on my computer.  I had forgotten about it.  It's from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.  It includes several movie themed svg files.  I was going to cut the filmstrip with my Cricut and the svg, but I was too lazy to set up the Cricut so the I decided to go with the digital image instead.    The paper is from my stash.  The words are computer generated.  
Of course, he's colored with Copics.


Copics:  C00, C0, C1, C2, C3, C4, C7, C9, E00, E11, G21, G24, R11, R24, R29, R39, YR24
