Birthday Boy

Hello to you all. Sorry I've not been around much just lately but I've been suffering and shivering with those dreaded bugs and germs. I'm trying to play catch up which isn't too easy when my head and body aren't functioning properly but I have a few cards that have to be finished (and started) in the next couple of days.

Here's the card I've made for my son's birthday this month. I chose this image from the LOTV 'Vintage Boys' sketch pad as it looks just like him when he was very young and would go to help my Dad in the garden. He actually had a striped shirt, trousers with braces, wellies and my dads' flat cap as well as a smiling round face and blonde hair. Now he is a grown man and still helps his grandad with his garden. I used Promarkers to colour the image, blue chalk to colour the sky and the papers are Prima Doodle Deux Collection and Raspberry Road Designs.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Sketchie free for all' (I used sketch 31)
I Love Promarkers challenge 'Anything goes'
CRAFT challenge 'For the boys'
Whimsy Stamps challenge 'Anything goes'
Natalie and Amy's challenge 'For the boys'
CraftyHands challenge 'Anything goes' (my 2nd entry)
Catch the Bug challenge 'Anything goes'
My Mums' Craft Shop challenge 'Autumn colours'
Wags 'n' Whiskers challenge 'Fall colours'

Thanks for popping by and I'll be round to see you asap.
