He was a sk8er boi........

Morning, my crafty friends, hope you're all well.
Feels like ages since i've been here chatting....had a strange week last week!
You know where you're busy but nothing gets done, one thing after another goes wrong, poorly
kids, the daftest craft accident ever....well that was my week! 
So hopefully things will settle down for now and i can get caught up on all your
lovely blogs!
Today i have a "just because" card, another one to go in my  box!
This fab image was given to me  and I'm almost sure its from The Greetings Farm,
I've coloured him with flex/promarkers, used plain & scallop dies for matting & layering.
The stars & bunting are cut with framelits dies and the spotty paper is K & Co.
The blue & orange card is from my scrap box and I've used a 6 x 6 card blank!
Oh, and there's a couple of brads on there, too!
So that's it for today.....gonna get caught up with some Dt commenting
and maybe a bit of gardening!
Thanks for looking....hope your days a good one!
