Cards for kids was the call of this week’s Operation Write Home Midweek Challenge, so I dug through my embellishments and found some cute little bees that were just begging to be freed. . . and of course, I just happen to have some new bee-themed paper that needed a home. Add some punched shapes, yellow Glimmer Mist, some brown ink and an orange rhinestone and I had a very simple card for someone’s little gal.
Even with a kit in hand, many of you can attest that building a gingerbread house can be a frustrating and tear evoking task, especially when the kids are eagerly waiting to adorn it with editable windows and sugar-covered roofs. Through the years (and trial and error) I came up with a tear-free solution to building our beautiful brown baked houses, and it all comes down to planning.
