LETS challenge this week is set by Suzie and she wants us to make a Childs Card...I used one of this weeks sponsers images, and here's what she says about herself..

Ellephantastic is very honoured to sponsor this challenge.
2Hi I am Helen. I suffer with CFS/ME & found a few years ago I could no longer work due to my illness.
To give myself something to do (when feeling well) I decided to go back to my roots....crafting!!
I grew up drawing, knitting & 'Cutting & Sticking'
Now I like to do all kinds of paper crafting, card making, altered art, knitting & sewing.
I also design & draw my own digital art.
My fun hobby has unintentionally grown into a li'l crafty business for me which I am loving.
There is nothing I like better than to put a smile on someone's face because of my crafting :0)
You can order & buy a lot of my work from my shop. You can also now buy some crafting products.

Here's my card....

The Image is one of our sponsors.
Bunting my own cut out by per..
Cars from a pack I bought in Asda a few months ago
