My two munchkins are off to a much better start than I am on this year's Christmas cards so I'm handing over to them for today's blog post!
They browsed through my stash of Christmas stamps on the weekend and chose a couple (Dasher and Snow Swirled were their favourites.) I suggested a one sheet wonder type of design with the snow flakes so they each picked 3 colours and got stamping.
Next up was stamping a bunch of Dashers and cutting them out. They chose a colour for the base cards and got the production line happening. Jack's production line petered out after 2 .....
.... One for each kinder teacher. We might have another go another day for his lovely Gymbaroo teachers. He was very keen to have some yellow on his card. Daffodil Delight is such a happy colour I think! Goes with his nice sunny smile.
Hannah has finished about a dozen so far plus borrowed an idea from the lovely Nikki Sadler from our recent Christmas Blog Hop to make the little chocolate gold coin yummy embellishments to pop on the envelopes for her class mates.
Me - I'm still trying to decide on a design and trawl through photos to find a pic of the kids to include. :-) How are you going? Making cards or gifts this year??
I headed off to Highpoint on Sunday to get gifts for teachers but it was so hustly and bustly there I gave up after one shop! On Monday I headed along to my favourite Keilor gift shop - Red Bird. (Arabin St, Keilor.) We got a park right out the front, had a lovely browse in the peace and quiet and found our 5 teacher gifts in no time. And she even gift wrapped them. Aaahhh. I think I can manage a few matching cards. :-)
Now pop back tomorrow if you are interested in some exciting December news from Stampin' Up - our new Summer Mini catalogue is officially launched and there's a rather exciting special to tell you about too. I'll have all the details at 6am (or later in the day for anyone not up with the sparrows!)
PS While I'm talking about my kids - Hannah had her calisthenics concert on Saturday. She looked so graceful. It's funny isn't it when you have those moments when you get a glimpse of the teen or adult ahead.
I loved this funky pink wig! Rather suits Hannah I think!
