Daniels School Friend

Daniel doesn't get many party invites but there is another boy in his year that also has Aspbergers and on Friday he was invited to Ethans birthday party at an indoor play centre. I must admit, I dont normally make handmade cards for the school children but Daniel loves handmade cards so thought I'd make the effort. I used the Rocket Backing Paper from "Basic Grey" and used my "Monkey Tails ALphabet" on my Bigshot. The images are from "Crafters Companion", I stamped with an Adirondaak Inkpad and coloured with Copic Markers. Done a matching insert with my "Crafters Companion, Boys and Girls CD" as they have "space" on the disc and am pleased with the finished result as i dont do many childrens cards although I should as I have 3 myself. Talking of kids and birthdays, my Zoe will be 6 next week and Jessica will be 13 the week after, but we will be spending her birthday in Disneyland and I think my hubby has hired a limo for the evening so we can celebrate her becoming a teenager. Less than 2 weeks and were off!!!!

You've chosen perfect elements for a child's card and put them together beautifully.

I hope they enjoy the party.
