A very enjoyable afternoon.....



Last week my granddaughter Grace and I had a lovely afternoon card making, for saying she is just 5 she did a brilliant job, in the first two photos she is working on a card for Daddy, she stamped the cars and  coloured them herself and even put her own backing paper on... Nanny helped with the punching!  The last card was Mummy's card and again Grace stamped her own butterflies on the background and then used bits from her very own embellishment box to decorate the card...and to finish off what all little girls like is a touch of glitter.  Bless her she is like a little magpie anything loose on my desk she always asked if she can pop it in her box..bless. Grace cant wait to come back and play, its so nice when we can share out passion with our little ones...

Back later on with more samples from tonight's craft club.

Thank you for all your good wishes and I am feeling so much better now...

Good Morning Anne,
What beautiful pictures, like you I love working with my Grandsons it is amazing what they can produce.
Loving Grace`s beautiful cards both Mummy & Daddy will be delighted. Yep! I have two like that anything not stuck down goes in their cupboard.
Always a good place to look if you think you have "lost" something.
Have a Great Day

Grace's cards look gorgeous...a little crafter in the making. She looks very beautiful too.
My 5 year old daughter is also a magpie, if it isn't stuck down it's gone!

Bless my little chick she had a fab afternoon - your amazing with the kids sharing all your crafty ideas !! Gracie loves to be a magpie in your room I will make sure she doesn't come round with a BIG tin or she will clear you out !! Xxx

Grace certainly has gotten her talent from you as her cards are wonderful ... Love how nicely she colored those cars for her Dad & mommy's going to love those butterfly's on her special card.
So sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well. Watch those medications as they can make you feel better but that's how I ruined my Vagabond machine. I was taking pain meds right after my back surgery & THOUGHT I felt wonderful but my brain wasn't thinking clearly & I used the wrong mats in my machine & jambes it up. Totally ruined it & I was heartbroken as it was brand new. Hope you're on the mend & look forward to new creations from you & the sweet Grace.
Hugs, Janie
