Happy Christmas Mates

The other day I asked Tiarna if she wanted to hand out Christmas cards to her school friends and she said yes... so the next question was whether she wanted shop bought ones or handmade, and she said handmade - "Handmade is nicer" biggrin. In previous years I have given them pre-stamped images to colour but this year I let her stamp her own (I had other things to do!), she then coloured them, we worked out colours and layering, cut the cardstock and then Tiarna put them all together. These were her cards, the koalas for friends and the roo for her teacher:

Towards the end of card assembly yesterday she asked me if she would have time to play on the computer before dinner. I had to answer no for the BBQ was nearly done, and I was expecting a disappointed girl negotiating card completion after dinner and bath, but instead she replied "that's ok, making cards is fun!" Confirmation I am raising her right wink.

Glad your training them well Carol. I was hoping to have them onto the stamps before getting them off the boob/bottle, or too soon?? Lol!
