Mother Fredrickson?!

My husband's aunt retired recently and we wanted to give her a card.  My husband and his aunt are always joking around with one another and both have a great sense of humor.  I wanted to make a funny card but couldn't find any great pictures of an elderly I MADE one!  I took this coloring page of Mr. Fredrickson from the Disney movie "Up"...

and by using my wonderful Make-the-Cut software, I turned it into this!

Isn't this hilarious!  I used brown Core'dination paper on the hair and tried to sand it a bit to make it look a little old, but it didn't sand so well, but it is still OK.  I used hot pink Stickles on her glasses and shoes as Mother Fredrickson is hip!  The inside of the card finishes off the card perfectly!

My husband was very pleased and laughed out loud when he saw it, so I am sure his aunt will enjoy it also!  If you have any comments, I would love to hear them!  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Thanks Michelle! My husband and I kept cracking up each time I would make a different change to the picture! It was fun to come up with!

  2. Shirley, that is just great. I loved the story about how you aquired your nickname as well.

    1. Thank you Elsa! His aunt loved it (as did everyone at the party!)! And thank you for your kind comments about my nickname. I sure do miss my brother and all his teasing! (Never thought I miss that!) :)
