"He Was A Sk8ter Boi...

...she said see you later boi! He wasn't good enough for her!" If you're singing along with this that means you know Avril Lavigne's Sk8ter Boi song! YEAH! LOL! Just look at what I got myself into! This card was made for Marie's sketch challenge over at The Greeting Farm blog for some candy! Awesome sketch Marie...it took me out of my "box" when it comes to LO's! I've NEVER done anything slanted...lol. Well...not that I can remember! Hmmm... Anywho...isn't he just the cutest? Who wouldn't want this sk8ter boi? LOL! Ok...funny story about the "city" behind Ian. Well...I was thinking...'should I or should I not?'...well I drew it in with pencil first to see how it looked and then showed my DS! He is just an AWESOME artist and is my drawing critic...so when he said it was "OK" and to go for it...I made it permanent! LOL! I listened to a soon to be 10 year old and I LOVE the outcome! Yes...TOOT TOOT...I am tooting my own horn! :P WHAT? LOL! It sure was a challenge for me to say the least! OH...I even drew an awesome "pavement" but realized it was too late when I layered on the "grass"! *sigh* A waste of "art" gone behind CS! Oh well...leasson learned! LOL...ALWAYS LOOK BEFORE YOU PASTE!!! What do you think?
