Create 4 Fun, One Stop Crafts & Saturday Spotlight With Hidden Potential Challenges

Here is a card I made yesterday after seeing a plea on Crafty C's Crafting Library blog, Claire posted this message

'Daniel is 12 on the 7th November and is on the Autistic Spectrum. He doesn't socialize and loves recieving your handmade cards. As most will know, for the last 2 years I have asked if some of you could send a card for him to open and the response has been overwhelming. He recieving nearly 100 last year. I think he enjoys this more than the presents. Love watching his face light up. He started a boarding school for Autistic Children in Sept and although he misses home, is slowly settling in and we do get him back every weekend. So if you could help, I'd truly appreciate it.'

and as before I had my accident I used to teach special needs children how could I not oblige. I used the sketch from the Create 4 Fun Challenge, then One Stop Crafts Challenge have the theme of 'Newspaper/Text/Script/Writing' for which I hope my speach bubble fits and lastly Saturday Spotlight With Hidden Potential Challenge have the theme this week of 'In So Many Words'.
