Did you know that yesterday (6 July) was Childs Art Day so as a way of celebrating that the theme for the challenge this week over at Crafty Sentiments is Craft with or for a child. So Ria and I managed to combine both, we crafted together and put a gift box of crafting goodies together for a friend at work who has a daughter who enjoys making cards. For our project we had a good solid box, Ria chose and coloured the images of Flopsy and Primrose (available at the Crafty Sentiments Store) while I decorated the top of the box and raided my stash for bits and pieces. I tried to incorporate lots of different crafting techniques to give the girl some ideas. I'm pleased to say that the gift was very favourably received.
