Oh my goodness I am so glad that it's Friday! I have not slept well the last couple of nights and it is catching up with me! Plus, I am excited because I know we will completely finish my craft room this weekend!
Today's card uses the new release from squigglefly called Trick Rider. I think it's a wonderful image for boys, or you could even send it to a man and say something about being a kid again. Here's my card

I asked a lot of people to give me some skateboard lingo to use on this card, and people have told me names of trick moves but I just didn't think any of them would work. In the end, I just went with this. I think the "Look Ma, one hand" thing might work or something about "flipping over you" for Valentines. Does "Hang Ten" work for skateboarding or is it just surfing? I guess I need to be around some adolescent boys to really get a feel for what to say!
I colored the image with copic markers and chalked my sky. The words are computer generated in the Rockit font. I added a few highlights with a white gel pen.
This weekend there is a big festival down by the Arkansas River that will last three days. There is some really good entertainment this year; Willie Nelson, Heart, Little River Band, B-52s, and some other local bands. There's always lots of good food and fun people watching going on. As much as I'd like to go, I'm going to opt to stay inside where it's cooler and finish my room. I can always put on a Heart album instead!
Whatever you have planned, I hope you stay safe and have fun! Thanks for looking!
