"Belle's Birthday Surprise #2" (belbday2.gif, 1011x729x2, 24023 bytes) is the 41st in a continuing series of fine Disney fanart drawings by Bob Ito <ito@[...]> and the 17th in the so-called "Bucketland Cards" series of handmade greeting cards, "when you're too cheap to buy a card." :-)
WARNING: This image is a bit on the risque side--nothing nasty, just a bit suggestive, for reasons which will be obvious upon reading the description. :-)
"Flowers, chocolates, promises you don't intend to keep..." But those aren't really what Belle wants for her birthday, as the brainstorming Enchanted Objects soon realize. What she *really* wants is Beast. And since it's her birthday, she wants him clean, after he's taken a bath. But with a, uh, special towel to dry off in...;-)
This is a handmade birthday card draw by Bob Ito for the birthday of Amberle Ferrian, the FDC walkaround Belle. It, and its two companion cards, spent three months traveling around the world to various rec.arts.disney readers and FDC members to be signed. Overall, 5 of 88 netters who participated in this little project of Bob's :) got this card, which was created to send to the people who couldn't get "Belle's Birthday Surprise #1" (belbday1.gif) due to lack of time.
The image itself is divided into several sections:
Left: front of card Right: inside of card Insert: back of card with "Bucketland Cards" logo
As with all Bucketland cards, all personal messages have been deleted from the image.
And, getting out of third-person talk for a bit :-), I'd like to give another heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who participated in this project. You helped make this birthday of mine one of the best ever.
