Skateboard Boy


Wow, two posts in two days!! It's been a long time since that's happened. I've been so pre-occupied that I even missed my 100th post milestone.

My sick little guy is such a trooper, still smiling through his spots!! Lucky for him (and me) his case of chicken pox is mild. Thank you to all my sweet blogging friends that have emailed with kind messages.

 I'm still feeling a bit disapointed at having to reschedule my trip to Adelaide to see my family. My second son who I was taking with me is being so good about it though. I have promised him we will rebook it as soon as possible.
On a positive note though, one of my brothers we were going to be catching up with down there for the first time in 15 years is going to come up here to visit us!! He is bringing his two boys and his new girlfriend. It will be the first time he has met my husband and my boys. So we are all very excited about that. They arrive on the 10th sept and are staying for a week. YAY!!

Anyway, enough about me and more about today's card!

I was meant to be working on a couple of Father's Day cards but I decided to use this image from Kenny K called "Skateboard Boy" that I have had coloured up for weeks now.

I have real shortage of papers and embellishments for boy/men cards and seeing as how I can't get out to the shops with my little guy covered in spots, I decided to get creative with my Copics and create the stars and stripes background papers.

I used an outline of stars stamp from the "Starring You" stamp set from Stampin Up! and just coloured around them. The sentiment is from"Kaszazz.

I hope you are all having a fabulous day!!

Thanks for stopping by.

Another fabulous card!

I'm so glad to hear your little guy just has a mild case (as would be expected if he was vaccinated, I would think).
