Brandon's First Attempt with a Kenny K Boy on Bike Image

Good morning!!  Rubbish weather today here.  Hope it's a little better where you are.

Onto this card which was not made by me (although I did make one similar, but will save for a later date).  It was made by my 7 year old son Brandon.  He's been dying to get in on the whole cardmaking and entering challenges thing, so this weekend I sat down with him and he got his hands on my pro-markers at long last.  We had a lovely time making cards together and he learnt a little about using different shades and skin tone.
