    Bright cards

    I had 2 birthday cards to make for next week and I thought that in these dull wintry times they needed to be bright and cheery .First card club penguin puffles ,a craze at the mo with some of my nephews and is coloured in by my 10 yr old nephew -did`nt he do well?
    Next is for a rather tomboyish neice who`ll be 7- hope its not too girlish for her !
    Just hope now the weather brightens up so I can get out to visit them the mo its floods and gales.
