Monster birthday

Urgh, Sunday evening already, don't know where the days (or even the weeks are going to!)  Can't believe we're over half way through May already.  No sign of summer here yet, we'd an awful wet day yesterday and today was warmer and dry.  But before we get excited, it's due to cool again through the week.  Ah well, there'll be a great sale on summer clothes and sandals in the shops this year LOL!

I was asked to make a birthday card for a guy who's big in to watersports, but I don't have any sporty images that aren't cutsey.  Instead I went with a surf board DP and wave effect die cut border and just a cheeky image instead.  Coloured with copics and hand doodled borders.  Wee anchor charm from my stash.
I think this is a Whipper Snapper stamp, and Paper Smooches sentiment.

Sweet Stampin - oodles of doodles
