Happy me.

Today is my turn to start our weekly theme and it also happens to be my birthday.

Here's the sketch that I worked from. I'm not very specific when I sketch for myself. Could you imagine turning something like this in to an Art Director? HA! Not likely!

Yay!!! Happy birthday to you Roz!!!!!
I hope you have the loveliest day today :o)

This is a-d-o-r-a-b-l-e! I adore the kitty and the colors, the birdie, the birthday hat, the stitches... everything! What a wonderful piece, it should go directly to your portfolio :o)

Happy happy birthday Roz!
I'm really enjoying your digital images!

Happy happy birthday! Hope you are being treated well and celebrating thoroughly!

Actually, if I've worked with the same art director for a bit so that they are familiar with my work, many of my sketches do rather resemble that one....

Happy Birthday Roz!! This little kitty is so adorable! You are so good at this digital stuff. . .this is digital right?

roz said...

Thanks so much everyone!
The family took me to see "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and it was too fun!

Sherry, this is digital.

TLC, I would love to get to a point with an AD that they could understand this chickenscratch!

Hi anette!

Ali- I've added it to the ol' portfolio.

Happy Birthday, Rozzie!!
Another sweet piece! I think you're way surpassing your goal of one new piece a month for your portfolio, how wonderful!!!

roz said...

Thanks, Patty!
I feel a bit guilty though, that they have all been digital. I had planned to do one cut felt piece a month. I guess it still counts, though, right! I didn't know at the time I made that deal with myself that I would go this direction.

Roz, you crack me up! I SO understand the chicken scratch dilemma. I super-clean things up for the client - it's , ha ha, something I should loosen up on a bit but I guess that is probably more of an organic process when working with a client who understands you.

Wonderful work as usual! A big fat A-DOR for you!! :)

(A belated)

OOOooooooo!!!!!!!! Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday dear Ro-o-oz! Happy birthday to YOU!!!!!! Hope it was spectacular. : )

Kate said...

Oh, and I love the birthday kitty, too. Very sweet singing birdies.

roz said...

You're all so sweet, thanks so much for sharing my birthday with me. You're all the best.

Happy belated birthday, Roz! What a great job you did with this piece. So adorable!! I could see this on a greeting card for little ones. Very sweet.

Gaia said...

It's great! I love all the tiny stitching details! :)
