Freddie's birthday card

Morning all - well - the rain is back with a vengeance here - but isn't it warm? I was hoping to take the girls horse riding this morning but we'll have to see if its cancelled with this weather!

I've got a card to share with you today that I've made for my neighbour's boy Freddie - who will be two next week.

Freddie is a very happy little boy - who loves his food - and so I think this card will go down well!!
The image is pinkcatstudio - I won it in a challenge a while back and am just getting around to using it - but thanks - I love it! I've made the card using 3 papers, 2 corners and 1 image so would like to enter it into the 3-2-1 challenge at Digi makeover, I've used Julie's sketch from sketch and stash - the image is my stash. I'd also like to enter the card into the other challenges listed below.

Whimsywhimsyinspires: Lots of layers
TSBthestampingboutiquechallengeblog: Show me the presents
papertakeweekly: Spots and stripes
Digital Tuesdaydigitaltuesdaychallenge: Childs Play
Sketch and Stashsketchandstashchallenge: Julie's sketch
Digi Makeoverpapermakeupstamps: 3-2-1 challenge (papers, corners, image)

I do hope you are all well - the school holidays are rolling by fast and its only a week now until I'll be on holiday - I will be scheduling posts but won't be able to comment - so apologies in advance for that!

Have a great weekend - thanks for dropping by!

Big Hugs Rachel xx
