Grumps is the nickname my kids call my Dad (a play on Gramps).
Now, Grumps doesn't have a budgie, i'm guessing he did as a child though, my great aunt bred them, but it's a standing joke in the family that the only thing that he can draw is a budgie, lol.
So as his birthday is coming up and Jake needed a card to give his Grandad, I decided to colour up FTH's Birthday Candle Birdbrain again (can't get enough of these little dudes), this time, I coloured him especially for Dad...
I used this pic off of google for reference...
Well, it's close enough I suppose! lol
The sentiment came with the image, and there's another inside the card, Jake chose "it's just another birdday".
The striped paper is by EK Success, designed by Stacy Claire Boyd, although i'm not sure what the actual 12x12 sheet is named as the strip at the bottom with the info has already been cut off years ago, this paper is at least 7 or 8 years old.
Grumps is cut with die-namics By the Letter dies using a brown wood effect paper from Basic Grey, Life of the Party pad.
