Creative Tuesday: Birthday

Mr. Toast's Creative Tuesday's are one of my favorite self imposed assignments.

It helps me force an artistic object or two into my paws (regularly) and just begs to find out what can come of it!

This week's theme is "Birthday!"  And this week's medium big fat scented markers!

Happy Un-Birthday to you!


This theme made me think back to my thirteenth birthday for some reason.  I was thinking about all the feelings of the moment and how hopeful I was looking to the future. 

I am still very hopeful, but more content with how things already are. 

Cheers to all your dreams coming true with every candle you blow out! 

And won't you check out all my fellow artists here!

I always find Creative Tuesdays can be a challenge. Good to look back and see how our hopes and ambitions have changed

Funny how I just landed on 13 when I was drawing... then it pushed my mind that way. That was the first birthday that I threw myself my own party. Very European!

I LOVE this! How clever to show us all of your feelings coming from this cake! Really great! Yes, 13 was full of excitement, fear and hope...glad I am where I am too, though way past 13...lol! really great one!

This is SO clever. Love the way you had the wishes come from the candles as they went out. I remember my 13th birthday, too. Funny how some stick in your mind more than others. :)

Love your reflection on this one...13! Maybe we all remember that special birthday. I became a "woman" if you know what I mean on my 13th BD. Quite a memory!

You cake really looks good enough to eat!!!

I love your positive, dream-filled birthday cake. Yes, thirteen was certainly the age for that! Now? Well, not quite so much. Ha!
