If you haven't already read about the wonderful "take-action" group "CARDS FOR KIDS", please read the post below.
The girls had some friends over today and I decided that it was a perfect opportunity to put my money where my mouth is, so to speak
(i.e. make some cards... for kids).
Here's the "recipe":
1 very worthy cause
2 8-year old girls
2 4-year olds, assorted
6 glue sticks
1 glue gun
1 Martha Stewart ballpoint-tip glue pen for fine glitter detail
cardstock and scrapbooking paper
glitter, buttons, doodads and plastic spiders
muffin cups & doilies
Halloween printouts (thanks to Matthew Mead, Martha Stewart, and my favorite: Emily at Inside a Black Apple)
Miscellaneous ephemera (old sheet music, schoolbook and dictionary pages)
The kids had a great time creating from the craft table smorgasbord, and were excited about the fact that their creations are going to other children.
