A Special Card for a Special Little Person

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
Just wanted to pop by to share a card I have made for my squidgilicious Grandson Oliver to wish him good luck on his first day at school.

But first here he is all dressed up and looking as cute as a button in his new school uniform:

I can hardly believe that he is off to school already - it only seems like yesterday he was a babe in arms - the years just fly by too quickly :o(

So here's the card I would like to share with you today:

Colouring Medium: Copics
Design Papers: LOTV 'Father Knows Best'
Numbers: Tim Holtz 'Wordplay'
Crystal Stickles

Challenges I would like to enter:

Cardz 4 Guyz - Let's Colour
Crafty Sentiments - School 
Deep Ocean - For the Boys 
Dream Valley Challenges - Back to School 
Sweet Stampin' - School Days

I'll be back tomorrow with another special card for another very special little person.

Thanks for calling by today.

See you soon.

Debs, this is gorgeous. I love your colouring and layout (I have n't seen this image before and your wonderful card has well and truly sold it to me now).
I now have an early morning lump in the throat remembering my boys (well blokes now) first day at school - yes, it does all go far too quickly...
Happy Thursday Debs

Aww, your Grandson is delish. My little boy Zac has just started school too, it's such a gorgeous age. (5 years here in NZ, so I'm guessing Oliver is only 4-41/2?) My daughter Georgie started school in the UK, so I remember her being still so small to me! But I bet Oliver will love it and he's sure to love the gorgeous card you've made him. What a gorgeous way to mark such a special milestone! Big hugs, Wends x
