Coffee House Fundraiser

Every year we have a Coffee House at our school in May.  My grade sevens make cards and sell them as a fundraiser for their year end activities.  I design three or four different cards and every child makes one of each.  This is one of the designs that they'll be making this week.   I absolutely love cardmaking with my students.  The best part is seeing the pride in their faces when their project comes out looking the way that they want it to.  (this isn't always the case with standard art projects in Elementary school:)  The only difference between the students' cards are that we usually vary the sentiments on the cards.   This new Watercolour Trio stamp set is perfect for this as it has a birthday, and thank you and a general greeting.  I love it!
