Gone fishin'

The school holidays are drawing near and, like many craft-loving parents and grandparents, I'm starting to think of some fun projects to keep the children busy on rainy days. That's if we ever get any rainy days ever again! One idea is to use stamps and/or digis to create some easy-to-colour toppers, then let them loose on the paper and ribbon scraps boxes and see what they come up with. Here is the card I have made to inspire them.

The image, complete with sentiment, is a digi - I didn't  keep a note of where it came from - which I've coloured with Promarkers. The fishy background paper is left over from a future project (well, I know what I'm talking about even if it doesn't seem to make sense!) and I've finished it with a scrap of ribbon.

I'll print off a selection of fairies, animals, superheroes and butterflies and let the children copy this simple card in their own way!

I'm sharing this with
