Lion King 1st Birthday

Hi Crafters, 
Yes I am still here, and I'm sorry that I have been absent for so long, but due to ill health and loss of creative mojo and interest, my craft room and supplies have just been gathering dust. I hope that I can continue to get back in the crafting saddle and be inspired to create again and get around to see what all you wonderful crafters have been up to.

I've almost forgotten how to a write a blog post, but here goes...........This is a card I've made for my little nephew who is turning one year old in a few weeks time.

Henry loves Lions, and he has one just like this on a sweater (sorry, thought I had a photo but I haven't!), so I hope he will like this card

I will also be entering him in the following challenges :
