Here's the card we made for mr richards

Mr richards gift

Mr richards is Kaitlyn's singing teacher and when she first started nursery she wouldn't even open her mouth to sing. Now she sings loud and proud and sings anywhere and everywhere and is always telling us all about him . He has helped her gain in confidence enormously. She bought him a lion and some nivea for men minis and we made him a note book , a seed card and a little bag of football goodies.
