Hi Everyone,

My Grandson is with us this weekend and he thought it would be a good idea to make a card for his Grandad as he hasn't been well, he made most of it himself with a little help  I did the cutting for him, but he said what he wanted to do , I think he has made a good job ot it. He made with some free Tatty Teddy papers and a Tatty teddy stamp which I had in my stash. Punched butterflies and a Tatty Teddy sentiment.

he would like to enter this card into the following challenge.
