Hi Vanessa, what a cute Father's Day card just love this image from LOTV. Love your colours you've used, great for a masculine card. Father's Day in New Zealand isn't until the first Sunday in Septmeber. I'm so proud of your 7 year old standing up and speaking. At our school all the children have to do speeches from new entrants at 5 years old. Years 0,1,2,3 can read a poem but gives them that confidence but from years 4,5,6,7,8 have to do a speech on their choosen topic and have to have fors and against which is amazing and teaches them to public speak both of my boys will talk and stand up in front of anybody, Good on you Lewis!!!! Great job and thanks so much for sharing your card with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.

Hi Nessy! Such a sweet Fathers Day card, love that little bear. Well done Lewis I'm sure you are very proud & rightly so. My eldest daughter left Primary school last Thursday, they had a leaving ceremony & like your son she is shy. She played a piece on her clarinet in front of 90 P7s & twice as many parents, she brought tears to my eyes, my hubby & I were so proud. Thanks so much for playing along this week @ Sweet Sketch Wednesday :)
