snow, snow, snow

We haven't seen a single flake much to Ebi-kuns disappointment, he is dying for it to snow, poor lad!
Yesterday we did some snowman painting

The finished artwork is now framed and on the shelf
and while he painted I made some snowflake matching cards, I used this site for the images and I made the cards here on Mrs Rileys Page Builder (thanks Shannon), I thought I would be able to download the files to share them but I can't. You can share them on the site but then I can't give credit to the owner of the pictures so this time you will have to make them yourself - sorry!
It does look like a good site and it is easy to use, maybe all us Montessori moms and teachers should get on there, make a ton of cards to share before they start charging ;o)

We also made some glitter playdoh which went down a treat, for those in Japan wondering where on earth I got my hands on some glitter - it was in the ¥100 shop in the false nail department!

  2. Those snowflake cards are great. How did you get the snowflake images in the card making program. I tried this morning and I couldn't figure it out.

  3. Sorry, I should have explained better.
    First go to the snowflake site, click on each image so that you have the image in a new window, drag it or download it to your desktop (I have a Mac and can just drag it). Next got to Mrs Rileys, you need to sign in if you want to print your file. Open a new file, choose a template. Then, put a word in the search box, it will come up with some pictures (or not) at the bottom of that box is a button with +new card. Click on that, there you can choose how to upload your images. You can only upload one at a time and each time you add an image to your template you have to back to the same page to get a new image.. There maybe a way round this but I didn't figure it out yesterday, I didn't spend much time on there.
    when you are happy with your template you can print the page, it will ask you when you save if you want to keep the file private or share, since I don't own these images I didn't want to share them.
    Hope that helps!
