Pals Paper Arts #74

This is the last PPA challenge of the year. Please play along with a great sketch from Margaret Moody. It saddens me that I created a sympathy card for this challenge. My neighbor down the street passed away Monday night. I feel for his family as this time of year is so festive. I choose one of my favorite stamps sets Lovely as a Tree. This is a great stamp set for any masculine card, and does double duty for this masculine sympathy card.

School Project for 25 kids!!!

I was asked by my daughter's 1st grade class to do a Holiday Card class project with them. I prepared 25 cards just like it was a little make & Take for a workshop. Only this was a kid workshop. All the kids had to do were assemble the pieces of the card. In less then 25 minutes all the cards were assembled and they were able to write a special message on the inside to go along with a handmade gift for their loved ones for the holidays.

I was honored that my daughter's teacher asked for me to be part of this.


The little blond girl in front is my Daughter Candice.





Even the boys enjoyed making cards!
