Making Cards with my Grandkids!

My son and his family were in town visiting this weekend.  Right after breakfast the kids asked if they could make some cards.

“Why, yes – Grandma Debbie would LOVE to do that with you!”  So off we went to my corner of the sunroom, which Jack named “Grandma’s Workshop” years ago; and the name stuck.

I pulled out some card kits that were left over from prior classes to get started.  Then we grabbed some ink and stamp sets and the kids went to town.

Sorry you're sick

Maddie made this card using a design from my upcoming event – “Kids Making Cards for Kids”


Present for Maddie

Maddie made this Christmas card. Notice the “kiss” technique used to create plaid gift wrap. And she put a tag with her name on it so everyone would know that the present is for Maddie. 🙂

Bday by Jack

Jack made this card and handwrote the sentiment instead of using a stamp. Kids do the darndest things!
