My nephew has just finished Year 1 at primary school and got a really good report for the end of the year, being graded well above his age in the national curriculum subjects (maths, science and literacy). Perhaps more importantly, he's trying hard in everything - bless him! I thought I'd send a "well done" card to add to the encouragement my brother and sister-in-law give him.
As ever with kids' cards, I struggled a bit and this is nothing like the initial plan but I think it's OK!
The cheery little monster is mounted on foam pads for a bit of dimension and I doodled on and around the stars.
I used a white insert on this one - I often write with a gel pen if I do a dark card base but I thought my handwriting would be enough for a six year old to cope with without adding extra complications!
