Wow! Now that kid has talent. If I recall correctly from my youth, when I would go hop on my skateboard, our dog would run for the hills! The last place he wanted to be was anywhere around me on wheels. Love the vibrant red in the image and the design of your card is terrific Kevin! Been on a little hiatus but I have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed catching up on your blog.
Hope you have a great weekend and the cool weather resides.

Hi, Kevin! Glad you and Heather made it thru your thunder and lightning. It's unnerving for folks who are not used to it - it's our norm here in central Florida - yet there are plenty of things that happen during your winters which make me shiver LOL

Your card is darling! (of course, is anything you do NOT cute? It ALL is!) Love the punches and papers you have used, and the cute little boy, too.

Stay safe! hugs, de

Great card, Kevin. I love the sweet image. Perfect for a fun lil guy!
For whatever reason, my Feedburner stopped working and I've been wondering why you hadn't been making any cards and hoping that all was well with you and Heather. Decided to visit your blog and voila, you have been busy with beautiful creations as usual. I have a bit of catching up to do with my commets. So sorry about that.
Hugs,
