Blogger's Challenge #26

I'm so sorry that I've only been posting on Fridays! Like you, it's been busy, busy, BUSY!

First, for the week of Christmas, I'll share what I've learned from my first and second grade students:

1. Jesus was wrapped in "swallowing" cloths.
2. Do you know why Mary and Joseph had baby Jesus in Bethlehem? After explaining it to one of my students that it was because Joseph's family was originally from there and they had to go to be apart of the census, etc... My student said, "Oh. I thought it was because they were having something done to their house."
3. Do you know what the wise men brought Jesus? Yep, Frankenstein and golden stuff.

I've hopefully retaught them the above stories correctly since they've shared their knowledge but boy do they bring a HUGE smile to my face!

Enough talk, here's my challenge. We were to include movement in the card. Lisa Somerville assured me that I could keep it simple as I am challenged with this type of card. I used the Flip-Flap Fold technique, an online bonus tech from Technique Junkies December newsletter. It was a simple, yet impressive technique.


Here's the details and pictures: Colors: Soft Sky, Real Red, Not Quite Navy and Very Vanilla. Stamp set: Nursery Necessities
