Poor Brandon, Poor Gerbil

Good morning all.  Hope you are all good.  I had a bit of an upsetting morning as one of my son's gerbils passed away right before my eyes.  He had tumours and as I was ringing the vet to have him put down because I could see he was suffering, he took his last big breaths and died.  Brandon is going to a friend's house for tea after School then when he comes home, I've got to break the news :0(

Anyhow, I thought I would come on and post a card I made and have a look around for some challenges.
