Good Afternoon! Well we made the most of the sun today and have just got back from the park :)
Today's card is for two challenges. I have used Basicgreys theme which is 'Tutti Frutti' and combined it with Sketch Saturdays fab sketch. I've used one of my Tilda's coloured with Polychromos pencils, Basicgrey nook & pantry paper pad, ribbon from hobbycraft, Funkykits sentiment, MS border punch, bowmaker and Handstitching.

My bowmaker from joanna sheen(fab prices and service btw)arrived yesterday. Well my youngest was with me in my craft room when i opened it and wanted to know what it did. So i showed him and he was rather impressed lol and ofcourse wanted to make one too and make a card to put it on. So here is the card that my son Luke made which he's going to give to his Great Nan...bless him :)

Also just had to share a piccy of him as yesterday he lost his first tooth! He came running to me and said "Mom I need to brush my tooth!" I asked why? And he replied "Well the tooth fairy won't take it if its dirty!" lol How sweet is that? He has a real cheeky face and he's always making me laugh!Love you Lukey :) xx

Thanks for stopping by today and reading my rather long post lol.xx
