well while i was making this card lewis (my 5 year old, who is home from scholl with the worst cough ever) asked if he could make a card like mummy, so he has made this card for nanna who has a birthday next week,so we looked at the childrens callenge over on hannah and zoes blog http://hannahzoecraftymonkeys.blogspot.com/ ~which the theme is "touchy feely" #so lots od embellishments that you can touch ~thin lewis has managed that!!! i cut out him some paper and put it on the card then he gathered some bits and i left him to it!!(when you have just turned 5 years old you do not need mummys help!!! so i was told)
lewis used two very touchy sunflowers, squiggy hearts,domed plastic "happy birthday",very glittered star,and some birthday ribbon all from mummy`s stash. he is going to rite inside today ~now the glitter has dried!!
