What a super card for the lads Jenny, I am sure your Great Grandson loved it with the fun images and bright and happy reds - all tractors should be red, at least they always were when I was a child! Many thanks for joining in our 'Boys to Men' theme at Allsorts challenge.

Love this card for your little great grandson ...but not as much as he will! Perfect card for a little boy featuring the monster truck, which I suspect will be a favourite gift! Love how you created the paper to match too.
