This week we had two birthdays, and some of the kids wanted to have a go at cardmaking.When I told them I'd be getting them some of my stuff, they were already making plans and sketches in thier minds of how they wanted it. They chose some red and pink papers which were free with Papercraft Essentials some time ago, and had a go at some images as well. I told them I'd be showing them to you, so...
I am a Religous Sister, and have been for the last 21 years. I have always had a love for drawing, collages, and anything to do with art and crafts. Some years back started to draw and paint posters, and cards once in a while. About three years ago I decided to have a go with real cardmaking, and have been hooked since! I also use this hobby to involve kids I take care of, and they love to make cards themseves to the people they love! :)
I think that when you give someone a hand crafted card, you are showing that you really care, and is worth to spend time and money on her/him to make him something unique.. a part of yourself!
Presently my days are full of kids, kids who live in a Children's Home, kids who are so energetic and burst with life.. and I really love each and every one of them. We make each other's day, and they are also so very proud of me and my cards!
