Mo's thank you card..

Morning Peeps!!

Its midway challenge 31 over on the FAS challenge blog and I had super fun with Mo this morning making a thank you card for my friend..wjo was my boss for many years whilst I was nanny to her 2 gorgeous children who I love dearly. They visited yesterday and gave Mo 2 huge sacks full of books!! Anyone who knows Mo will know that he is a complete bookworm!!  

We went straight out with them all and the dogs for a walk across the common so there was no time for Mo to explore the bags last night but Scott snapped this photo at 5am this morning when Mo woke up and headed straight downstairs to explore the bags.....( I love the way his PJ top is inside out and he had tucked himself into the bag to get a good look in there!!!! too cute!!!)

Mo wrote the 'Thank you' himself, I love when he does that,it makes cards so much more personal. He was so excited about all the books in there, all we kept hearing were little 'woohoooos' and 'oooohs' and now he is sat looking through the pile and sorting then=m out!!
And of course I used the sketch I made for our Fetch A Sketch challenge blog sketch this week ...
Remember that you can flip the sketch, rotate the sketch, resize it and make any type of project you like with it - as long as we can see the original sketch in your creation we'll be happy! and don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog and see Ruths card!! its awesome!

I thought using a photo on a card was just perfect for this card and later I am going to try a scrap page with it too!!

We have just got back from an early bird swim with Mo and so I am just having a cuppa and a chocolate croissant before I go on a bloggy womble!!
Thank you for popping in on me!
