My brother was born September 2nd and sometime in 2008, I got excited as I realized his future birthday would fall on 9-02-10 or “90210”!  When I was growing up in the 1990s, I loved watching “Beverly Hills, 90210” and had a big crush on Luke Perry, who played Dylan McKay.  I don’t think my younger brother card for the show, but he knew I watched it, so I thought it would be funny to turn him into a 90210 character for his birthday card.

Unfortunately, my laser printer isn’t behaving properly, so the picture I printed for the card came out streaky.  I thought I should explain that in case you thought I used a picture of him in a sweaty t-shirt.  That was not the case!  I used Studio G brand flock for David’s sideburns, and here is a close-up of those gnarly ‘burns:

Don’t you just want to reach through your computer to pet that furry sideburn?  Maybe that’s just me.  🙂  Thanks for reading my blog!

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
