My Kite....

It always a problem finding different images for little boys cards but spotted this one on Mo Mannings Digital site and just fell in love with it....coloured with Copics, backing papers are from Echo Park A' Boy's life' pad and used my Memory Box puffy clouds die.

I can remember my brother and I having fun years ago with Dad  trying to fly the old 'Box' kite..those were the days when you only had one string to worry about some of todays kites look so complicated with two strings.
