Hunkydory Butterfly and Brandon Year 7

Good morning crafty friends.

Hope you are all good today.

Brandon started Year 7 today (first year of Seniors) and he looked so handsome in his uniform....

He enjoyed his first day and was very keen to go to School this morning.  I wonder if this will last lol!

My lovely neighbour Yvonne knows I like cardmaking and she gave me lots of cardstock that she had.  She decided she wanted to have a go at cardmaking a while back and bought some goodies off Create and Craft TV.  The only thing is, when she tried it, she couldn't take to it.  She kindly gave me the items she'd bought (Hunkydory and gorgeous card blanks).  I decided I would make her the first card as a thank you from the what she gave me.  She was over the moon and here it is....

Really easy and fun to do!
