A Giggle a Day ....

Hi there!

I hope you're all keeping well!  We weathered a huge winter storm yesterday and the boys had a snow day from school so were very happy!  It took us over 2hrs to shovel our way out of the driveway and the snow just kept coming ... today we have gorgeous blue skies and sunshine albeit a tad chilly at -17oc!

Anyhow, I have this little boy card to show you today.  A good blogging friend, Debbie, over at Passion for Crafts  has her autistic son Jack moving into a residential school.  The transition is going to be difficult for both of them and she came up with the idea of sending cards to Jack to keep his spirits up.  So, that is where todays card is off to ... hopefully to put a smile on Jack's face!

The image is from Wags & Whiskers and coloured with copics.  The  paper and sentiment is from the Cogsmo pad from Cosmo Cricket.  The button & twine are from my stash.

I'm going to enter this card over at the Cute Card Thursday challenge blog where this weeks challenge is 'Banish the Blues' - to make a card that features humour (either image or sentiment).  I hope my card reflects it - I think it does!  Also, over at The Crafty Pad they're asking for 'Something for the Boys'.

Thanks for stopping in today ... your visit is most welcome and very appreciated!  I hope you're able to leave a comment for me - I love to read them!  Take care and stay warm!
