Happy Birthday, Mum! #CaturdayArt

Posting Caturday Art a day earlier because today is Mum's birthday and I wanted to show you the card I made (with her help, of course) πŸ˜»πŸ’–

Caturday Art
This card was made with FotoJet


And we used the Psychedelic Art Effect from LunaPic to make it even artsier.


Talking of psychedelic, Mum was born during the latter half of the Swinging Sixties. She is proud of that fact because she really believes British music was at its best then. The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, etc. But not just British acts though, American legends The Doors and Jimi Hendrix were amazing too.

What was Number One the day you were born?

Mum found this great website where you put in your birthdate and place of birth and it tells you what song was at Number One in the charts at the time.

She got "Sunny Afternoon" by another great British band of the time, The Kinks. And the funny thing is that Mum was indeed born in the afternoon at 3:45pm. Granny can't remember if it was a sunny day. Mum reckons it was probably thundering because it normally does on her birthday!

Isn't this the most purrfect song for us cats, though? Nothing better than lazing on a sunny afternoon, isn't there?

Come on, it's summer, it's hot, so let's just celebrate being lazy and chilled out. Come on, Mum, you too!

Happy birthday, Marie! Athena, you made some really pretty cards for your mum. Thanks for sharing that website. #1 on the US chart on my birthday was "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" by Marvin Gaye. :)

Happy Birthday to your mum. Love the card you made. Pop thinks the best music ever made was the 60s British Invasion. TW loved the punk British Invasion of the late 70s. We're gonna have to look up the music from when we were born.

Happy birthday to your mom Marie, Athena! These cards are purrfect, and we bet you'll help your mom celebrate even more with lots of snuggles. That's a fun website you shared. The #1 song when this human was born was "The Look" by Roxette. Here are some more birthday wishes for Marie!

I love the 60s. Some 70s music was great too (more rock than disco), I wasn't really into punk but I loved all that new wave stuff and then the early 80s was great too because they were my teenage years. I can't remember much of the 90s because I was drunk most of that decade!

Marie Symeou said...

Thank you. I love Elvis :)

Marie Symeou said...

Thank you. Another great song and your human must be quite young :)

Happy BirthdayπŸŽπŸŽ‚πŸŽˆ to Mum Marie. Your card is beautiful in its original form and the arty one. We hope your mum had a great day with lots of love from you. We wish her happiness. Mom tried that music finder. The song from her birthday she'd never heard of. The song that was #1 when she and Dad got married was totally perfect - You are the Sunshine of My Life by Stevie Wonder. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer
