I had an idea the other day when I saw a reply about finding vintage images that discarded library books might be a good place to find such images. So, when I took my son in earlier (because he'd already read 5 of the 7 books he checked out on Tuesday!) I went through the rack where they sell books...this one was a 1954 book in pretty rough shape that they sold for a dime! I colored the image with blender pen and pastels and sponged some sky behind them. I used yesterday's sketch flipped and altered just a bit and thought this would be perfect for today's Boy oh Boy challenge and as a card for a friend who just found out that her first baby due in August is a boy.

Your boy sounds like ours! We visited the library and checked out 15 books for him so that he'd have something to read for more than a few days. :P Don't you love the illustrations in children's books?! This is an awesome card. Great job!
