Thank You Card made by my Son :)

I thought I would share this card that I helped my 10 year old son to make for his Great-Auntie Sandra, to say 'Thank You' for the watch she gave him, which belonged to my Uncle Steve before he died last month.

As always click on the images to enlarge :)

The card along with the matching envelope that I made.
