This is Bryce. He is one our young neighbours and we have had the pleasure of knowing him since the day he was born. He spends a good deal of time playing hockey, whether at the rink or in his driveway. I had to smile at the comment that ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' snaffles left about puck marks (and dents) on the garage door. That is a fairly common sight in Canada to be sure. In the case of this lucky garage door however, the net is kept on the side of the driveway as: a) they need to park in the garage so they'd be moving it all the time, and b) Bryce's mom uses the garage as a workshop, so in the summertime the door is open fairly often. It's hard to work when you're dodging flying pucks! Anyways, thanks to Bryce for being a great kid and taking time to pose for me (he was busy sliding on a snowbank when I asked him).

Wonderful idea, it definitely shouts 'Canada' to me! The maple leaves are a great touch indeed. The yellow toning works also perfectly and adds some nostalgia to the stamp. Great work, congrats on the nice finish!
