My 1st Christmas

I drew this digi a while ago for the Digistamps4Joy store, and called it "My 1st Christmas".   I added lots and lots of glitter glue to the little dragon, and diecut the poinsettia flower. The digi was coloured with my H2O pencils and OMS. This digi is available in the Digistamps4Joy shop.

Kids Card-making class

I held my first kids card-making class on Saturday 9th November, with 6 young ladies aged 6 to 10 years old. What a fabulous fun time they all had - including me!
They started off by learning how to score and fold a card, and add double-sided tape. They then cut out some graphics for the first card, and raised these with small foam tabs onto the design papers. Some sequin embellishments were added.

After a short "cooldrink and cupcake" break, the girls tackled their second card, and this is when the REAL fun started! One of the girls asked for a different colour of glitter-glue, and when I brought out my container of glitter glues they went WILD! Their cards ended up being so "glittered up" that I needed sunglasses to look at them! All efforts by 2 of the moms telling them that 'less is more' fell on deaf ears! One of the girls switched on a modern song on her cellphone, and these girls literally ROCKED while they glittered! I know they went home happy - no…
