And yet again ... a Boy

Once again, here is that image that reminds me of my brother, just a mere 43 years ago. Cool Dude Joe from Digi Stamp Boutique. And yes! he did have a skateboard and then a go kart and then a bike and then a motor bike (I think Mum is still recovering from that one) and then a car. What is it with men and their obsession with things!!! 
I, on the other hand was perfectly happy with playing schools, Barbie dolls and Donny Osmond. Of course I am over all that stuff now. 
Got to dash, I am off out and have to find my purple cap and I am distracted by one of those old songs playing on my ipo ..... I mean, the radio "..... and they called it puppy love, I guess they'll never 
know ... ".

And again with the Boys

I've always liked the saying ..."When you are on a good thing - stick to it" and these cute Digi Stamp Boutique images are definitely a 'good thing' in my book. 
Luckily for me, I purchased the '3' set of images cause I love 3's of. 
Perhaps not so lucky for you - cause there is another one on the way. Stay tuned for 'skateboarding Joe"! 
The paper pad is MME All Spice and the Copic colours I have used are: E31,33,50,51,53,55,57 and 93

This little fella, 'Joe and Present' from Digi Stamp Boutique, looks exactly like my brother used to look... about 43 years ago. 
That cute, adorable, 7 year old, sandy haired kid, who could do no wrong. 
(If you believe that then you have never had a younger brother) 

I thought that he might like to give this card to Mum for Mothers Day. All I have to do now is to go and choose, buy and wrap the present for him to give Mum. I am sure that I will be greatly appreciated with a - "Oh good! Thanks for that. What did I get her!" 
I think that my sister and I created a monster. A lovable monster that is. 

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
