Mother’s Day Heart Cards

Here are the rest of the Mother’s Day card samples for the Achievement Day Girls card class.  This time I used Hearts.  Just a Note:  The girls used these samples as a springboard for the own creativity so none of their cards looked exactly like mine.  I do enjoy watching children using their own creativity.  And they all had a fun time – which is important.  Their Mothers will LOVE the cards because their daughters made them.

Mother’s Day Flower Cards

I taught a Mother’s Day card class Thursday for the 8-11 year old Achievement Day girls from Church.  They each received a packet for a Melon Mambo card and a Perfect Plum card.  Here are the samples using the Petal Potpourri Bundle (stamp set and punch).  They had a fun time being creative and did well with cleaning their stamps when they were done using them.  I did explain they were using “Grown-up Glue” and that they did not need to use very much.  We only had two girls that forgot.  Hopefully their mothers can open their cards.
