“Elementary, My Dear Watson”


You probably guessed by the quote above that the theme for  my husband’s 70th Birthday card is Sherlock Holmes.

Chuck has always been of big fan of Sherlock Holmes and I thought that he would really enjoy his birthday card.

 Tidbit: A documentary about the real life inspirations for Sherlock Holmes. A leading professor of medicine, Dr. Joseph Bell is a pioneer in a new field, forensic science. Joseph Bell is the real life model for the greatest fictional detective in history. He inspired his student, Arthur Conan Doyle to create a legend.

 I was inspired by a card I saw a very long time ago and I just had to have the Sherlock Holmes Stamp Set used on that card.  The stamp was purchased from Kraftin’ Kimmie about 4 year’s ago (I think) with my husband in mind.  And I just got around to using it, lol.  Here is a picture of the original card that I cased.

I used the Zig Clean Color Brushes to water color the image.


CD of some of Chuck’s favorite songs.  And the label of Sherlock Holmes playing the violin was created using my printer and a printable CD.


Note: The Sherlock Holmes stamp is no longer available from Kraftin’ Kimme.


Thank you for stopping by.
