Hello Birds

I love these birds who are so great to colour.

I needed a card to send to two of our grandchildren (Holly and Sam) in response to their formal invitation, explaining why we couldn't make it to their school grandies day and decided they would like these birds.

Grandies day, for those who aren't aware, is held once a year when grandparents are invited to school to see what their grandkids have been doing, read books in the library with them, look at their projects and may have lunch in the playground with them.  Often they have been working on special things that grandies need to interact with, e.g. geneology - last time we had to draw ourselves on their family tree!  Another time they had to teach us how to make origami bookmarks.

We really enjoy these and have another one coming up later this week for a different school in Tauranga (Rhiannon).

Stamps: Tim Holtz
coloured with Copics
Diecut word: LawnFawn
Also: patterned paper, KindyGlitz, white pigment pen, black Enamel Accents

What a lovely apology card Carol - it's hard when we can't make it to things like Grandparents days :)
