I haven't really been into  crafting or (making as my granddaughter Elena would say) for a few days now, everything I touched ended up in the bin so I left well alone.  I was just trying out a different paper to colour on, which is how this card got started really.  It works out quite good for my grandsons Birthday in November, so unless I make a better card this one is in line for Stephen.  It’s very hot here in Spain now so moving about is very slow and sitting still in a cool room making is definitely better.

 I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges
Joanna Sheen                                                             Going Round In Circles
