Having a mainstream moment

Contrary to my popular belief, not everyone likes weird cards.
So every so often I am challenged to create a mainstream card
for family birthdays and special occasions.

I adore this image called, Retro Girl 3
I am a huge fan of Torico (of Birdie Brown), who now designs exclusively 
for My Favorite Things. She used to sell her images on Etsy, 
but unfortunately, she closed her shop when things picked up at MFT.
Glad I stocked up on her digital art when I had the chance. 

I made this card for my SIL. I colored her to resemble Dana, too.
She has three boys under 12, so I imagined her sitting alone and 
enjoying a cup of tea/coffee for her birthday. 
I bet she imagines that scenario as well. 

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Thanks for dropping by today.
Hope I didn't frighten my creepier fiends with this one.
The darkness shall return momentarily.....   


  1. The creepy cards arrived last week ... or maybe it was the week before. I'm lost in a time warp and appear to be in some bad western movie, trapped in the stiflingly hot room of a hotel built at the turn of the century, which sadly does not have AC but thankfully does have a saloon. :)

    Anyhoo, they are magnificent and as soon as the youngest finishes unpacking from her move last weekend, one shall be framed and hung in a place of honour in her new domicile. The other one I'm keeping!

    Thank you, Creepy Glowbugg! From your faithful admirers of the weird! ❤
