Biker Granny's 83rd Birthday!


My hubby's Grandma turned 83 this week! Not only is she totally independent, and still drives....even several states away, but she also loves to ride on the back of her son's motorcycle! Oh, I wish I had a photo of her in her full leather riding gear, chaps and all!!!! I just HAD to use Snoopy's Chopper in "hot pink" for her birthday card! This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast was to choose an item from the Grandin Road catalog. This wall art was perfect......though Snoopy is riding PAST the mountains, instead of climbing UP them, I thought it was the perfect piece!
The scene was created by masking the sections and coloring with sponge daubers and ink pads. I used Vintage Violet for both the road and the mountains. The clouds were made by sponging Pink Pirouette over a scalloped circle. The little flowers are from Trees Three by SU. This colorful ribbon was 50 cents at Michael's! Pink Pearls were added to the motorcycle hubs and corners. Cotton Candy Stickles were added to the flowers, gas tank and fender, and on Snoopy's sunglasses....REAL MEN WEAR PINK you know!!! Thanks for stopping by!!! Have a blessed weekend!!!
