Hello my dear Friends! I've been so busy for the last few weeks (busy with crafting - lucky me!) that I've had no time left for blogging (not good!)... I will be able to share what I have been up to very soon :).
And I'm really sorry I haven't been visiting your fabulous blogs as often as I would like - I promise my visiting and commenting will go back to normal soon, too!
Have you heard of CR8TIME? It's a new movement driven by the CHA Foundation and supporting partners, promoting the idea of getting your family, friends, neighbours, colleagues to spend quality time through creative activities. You can find out more about it HERE. I absolutely love and support this initiative.
As it happens, my boss is a volunteer in the local Youth Club. So when she asked me to do some crafting with the kids, I immediately said yes! Not because she's my boss and stuff, but because I really really loved the idea :).
But first and foremost, this month's challenge at Stampendous is all about love. To join the challenge create a project with a love theme, a wedding or anniversary card or maybe a Valentine's card for your secret crush - all heartfelt projects welcome! I'm joining the challenge with the projects I made for the Youth Club activity.
Since Valentine's Day is just round the corner, Valentine's cards seemed like a great theme to get the kids involved. We were playing with patterned papers, card and some stamping using Stampendous stamps (Vintage Typewriter and Rose Thoughts sets).
Here are a couple of the kids' projects :).
Birdie and her card.
This card was made by Jack for his Mum - see the message inside - how sweet was that???
And here are the samples I made for this event :).
Apologies the pictures are not that great but they were taken with my phone :). Stampendous are one of the partners in the CR8TIME project so I was really excited to use their stamps during this creative playtime.
That's all for now! I'd love to see your heartfelt projects and if you host or join an invent in the spirit of CR8TIME, I'd love to hear all about it!
Thank you for popping in and your sweet comments. I promise to share some love on your blogs very soon!
