Cards for grandpa.....

Needed to make two cards today so had a peek at some challenges for inspiration.

This weeks Papertake challenges is to use this fab sketch by Dawny. I do love her sketches!

And here is my card using Dawny's sketch.

Was rather chuffed with myself as it also fits in with the Secret Crafter's Sat challenge for this week which is to use Fancy Corners.

Now cos this is for a male I couldn't get too carried away with my corners so I used Woodware punch which cuts out little notches........hope that's fancy enough!

Thought I would leave you with a pic I took today of my baby.....

Oh boy, just look at him he has grown! He is 5 months old already. He is going out into the garden on supervised play sessions and today he discovered......trees!
He just kept climbing up & down for slept for ages afterwards.

Thanks for visiting.....
