"Biker Girl"

On Sunday last weekend I was sent a email by Dr. Digi with this "Biker Girl" image above and it reminded me so much of a very dear friend of mine, and as this week is a very difficult one for her and I felt if I could make her smile it was worth buying it and giving it a go.
And this was the photo that inspired me and as the friend in question is almost 86 I thought that the image was appropriate so I hope you like the result.
