A Card for a 'Very Special' Child at Sweet Stampin'

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.

Whooooppp whoooopppp I'm so happy it's the weekend and my DH will be home later - I have really missed him these past 4 days :o(

So today I have a very special card made for a very special little boy who will be a BIG 4 years old on Tuesday and who is having a fabulous Gruffalo Feast birthday party on Sunday -
 my squidgilicious Grandson Oliver :o) and it is my DT make for the new challenge over at 

where the theme this week is


Oliver is totally obsessed with The Gruffalo at the moment so I just had to find an image online to colour and there were plenty to choose from.

So here's what I did:

He knows all his letters and numbers so he will be able to read what this says :o)

Our sponsor this week is 

offering 1 lucky winner
2 digi images of their choice

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the awesome inspiration from my DT buddies.

Challenges I would like to enter:


Thanks for calling by today.
Have a fabulous day.
