CraftyCatz challenge...one for the boys...oh nooooo
Hi All,Hope you have been having a good week-end so far,typical BankHols weather I see.....not to worry as it is supposed to pick up tomorrow...fingers crossed...ok then,about my card,I feel abit of a cheat really with this,I suppose it's because it has a photo in place of an image normally used...but I hope it will be forgiven as it is for my Grandson to give his daddy on Fathers day.... the whole card was made using a digi download from the wonderful Summer Driggs....if you haven't been and visited her blog before I can highly recommend it,I have been a big fan for a long time now,she is amazing,her kits are always so packed full of papers and embellishments,and obviously,once you get your hands on them you can resize as you like...the photo is of my G.son Kaleb...who will be five in Oct;but starts School this Sept along with Lucas...same ages,same School....oh dear....good job Carla works there methinks...or is it....lol....the only thing I added is the button,which came from stash......hope you like and can forgive me on this occasion...lol....have a fun day...take care..hugs Janette.xxxxxxxxxxx
