Animal Challenge - Make it Crafty June Challenge



G'Day :)

Hope you are having a lovely day!

Today I'm sharing my challenge card for June's Animal Challenge, my focus for this challenge was 'FUR' and I must admit I was shaking in my boots when I found this out because I sucked at colouring fur! So instead of complaining about it too much I decided on the image I would colour and started researching. I looked at so many photo's of Koalas until I felt confident enough to start and believe me I coloured heaps of these until I was happy with this one. My point is if something is scary just keep practicing and like me you might be pleasantly surprised with the results.

Mother's Day @School



Hello :)

Those who know me know that I'm an integration aide at a local Primary School with just 27 students in the whole school, I love my job and all the students, they make me smile everyday.

I've been charged with card making at school for all the usual events, Mother's Day, Father's Day and Christmas.

Last Thursday I spent most of my working day helping the students make these Mother's Day cards ready for them to give to their Mum's today, they had so much fun!

All the Staff and Students asked me to please thank Zoe from Make it Crafty so very much for generously donating the gorgeous chipboard sentiments for the cards, they are very grateful.

I made this card for them to use as a guide to create their own.



And here are the fabulous cards handmade by the students aged from 5 to 11.





They did a wonderful job!! 

 Happy Mother's Day to all the Aussie Mum's!
