Here is one of the cards that I did for the swap:

This is a great set to try your hand at watercolouring. The great thing about watercolouring is you do not have to colour neatly. If you would like to try this technique and need supplies just click here or on the shopping cart.

Kid's Card Class

Last spring my daughter's school had a raffle and I donated 2 Gift Baskets. One basket had a selection of cards and a Gift Certificate for a Free Class for 4. The second basket had a set of coasters and as well a Gift Certificate for a Free Class for 4.

Last Friday one of the winners, Alison, had her class with her friends. The girls were 11 years old and a couple had some stamping experience. I had a blast and the girls LOVED their cards. They made the "Boooo" card from my post on Sept 17, 2012 and the following darling Monkey Punch Art Birthday card:
