This is my interpretation of Mandys sketch, I used the new
Skateboard Andy stamp from HERE..coloured with Promarkers from HERE 
I wanted it to be bright & fun with the K & Co Hopscotch DPs
..I love to use sparkle on me creations but this one would look a bit
odd with  DIAMONDS  on..BG buttons & sentiment is another
great Pinkgemdesign HERE they fit so well into  circle netsies..
