Happy Birthday Sunshine!

My Dear BIL, Larry in Wisconsin celebrated another Birthday and I couldn't let it pass without sending him some Snark.  Bugaboo's Gus is the most hilarious old geezer and I hope Larry will appreciate this self-portrait his darling brother, my DH selected for the occasion.  Since Larry lives in the city and we live at the beach, we are trying to tempt him to come South for some Sun and Fun.  Gus is already for his beach holiday.  He has his surfboard and beach toys all ready to head out, scope some chicks and catch some waves. 

This fun Gus image can be found at Bugaboo Stamps and if you shop before the end of May, you will get him 50% off.  If you are like me you will pick up several at 50% off.  Their characters are too funny.  I colored him with my Copics.  Free handed the surfboard and sun.  The sentiment was created using a sunshine font.  I crackle glazed the beach ball and glazed the bucket and his glasses.  The cardstock was SU and the DP was from the Good Day Sunshine collection at My Mind's Eye.  Finished it off with a bit of twine and some tiny shells from my stash.  I am entering Gus in Bugaboos Dads Grads and Other Celebrations challenge.

On a more sombre note, we were just watching the weather channel and the people out in the mid-west are having another night of deadly tornadoes.  Even the poor people in Joplin, Missouri are under warnings again.  Please keep these people in your thoughts and prayers.  This has been such a horrific spring for them.  If you are from the mid-west as I know some of you are, please stay safe .
