Em's Teachers Gifts & my new Copics :0)

Hi all,

I just thought I would share what Em is going to give her Teachers at Preprep for Christmas. These Bon Bons are so easy to make & are filled up with Ferrero Rochers (yummy chocolates). I got the template for these wonderful Bon Bons from my LSS last Christmas when I went to a one day workshop. I will post the cards Em & I made later.

I am just thrilled to bits that my little girl wants to help me make things. The other day she dragged the computer chair (twice her size & on wheels) over to my craft desk just so she could help. I was over the moon, as I want this to be something we can always do together. I think having a hobby that we can both enjoy is something special.

The images I used are from The Greeting Farm, my wonderful friend Helen gave me some stamped images. I used some of my new Copics (YAY I finally got some!!!!) to colour these images & I can see why every one is raving over them. They are just so beautiful to use. In fact normally I don't colour my stamped images in unless I am going to use them on a project, but last night all I did was colour images in while watching an old Inspector Lynley mystery. I just love playing around with my Copic Ciaos & seeing what happens. Plus having some wonderful images didn't hurt.

The very lovely Donna is such a wonderful caring & giving person. Plus her cards are so inspiring & amazing to boot. I had some questions on using Copics & Donna was very helpful in pointing me in the right direction. I am also getting a card & some wonderful images from her. Unfortunately the Postie around here doesn't seem to understand that this crafter is not the most patient person when it comes to stamped images & cards. So guess who has been lurking around the letterbox each day :0). Donna I will let you know the minute I get your wonderful parcel.

Cardvaarks is having a colour it challenge here so I think I will enter these Bon Bons into the challenge this week.

Well I'm off to do some dreaded house work, people are starting to write in the dust - not good. TTFN
