Family Christmas Cards~

Hi Girls.

I am a little tired today.....I have been working with a bunch of 6 year olds, 25 of them!!
Twice this week I have been teaching some "Crafting" at a local School. Wednesday I taught 24 3-5 year olds (OMG, great, but hard work!) and today I have been captivated by the 6 year olds. They have been hilarious and were on full scale Christmas mode. I was treated to five Christmas Songs (which they are to perform for their parents in December) I knew one of them, so joined in to the children's delight!! (They must be tone deaf!!)

The best fun I had was when I told them my Birthday was Christmas Day, and Mrs Beckett their teacher said "Poor Debbie, she won't get Christmas and Birthday presents, just one big pressy, what a shame", to which one of the children said "Oh how awful, I bet that has ruined your whole life"!! I don't have to tell you I was crying laughing.
I found the day today so good and wish I was back working with them, they were a delight and they loved making the corner bookmarks and the door hangers.

Before I settle down to watch Avatar with hubby I will share a card with you. I have been tyring to make some Family Christmas Cards and last night managed to make Hubby's, Daughter's, Son's and my Mum/Nana's, so I was really pleased.

This one is Hubby's and the image I think is a Kanban Set but not sure. Coloured with Copic/Pro's, and the papers are all leftovers from my box. I have used a Swiss Dot Folder through my Vagabond to texture the green card. Sentiment is PC generated.
Unfortunatly I made a Boo Boo with the colouring of the Teddy's hand!! Instead of colouring it brown (bear colour) I decided to colour it Green! Yes I know, big difference, thought it was part of the hat 'till I looked closer, too late. Don't think Hubby will notice though!!

Hi Debbie, what a gorgeous card, love the image so cute! I had to smile at you working with all those children - I have enough trouble with one 4 yr old. Don't know how you managed with all of those! Sarah

PS - Hubby's birthday is on the 29th December - he's used to getting one present as well!
