My lil man is starting school!

Thomas starts school on Wednesday 14th September (eeek, where's that time gone?) and I thought I'd make him a card. This obviously means I will have to make Jack one too as I can never do something for one and not for the other, lol x

I saw this image at Digistamp Boutique and thought it was perfect and I hope Thomas' face is as smiley as this on his first day. I don't think that is going to happen as he has decided he doesn't like his uniform, arghhhhh! I have kept the card very simple, my boys aren't too keen on the 'mess' I add, they don't see the point of pretty bits ;-)
