The little girl next door, called Gabriella, isn't yet seven and she coloured this for us. How sweet is that?
The piece of paper was badly crumpled from the effort of posting so the following day I carefully ironed it between a couple of sheets of paper, adhered it to a piece of card, popped it into a document holder and then stuck it to the inside of one of the front bedroom windows.
There was a note, also crumpled, which I also ironed as flat as I could:
It says - literally:
'To Len dy and duley hope you are oll OK and hope you have a lovely day here is a rainbow for you since you have not got one oredy love from your nabers Gabriella and Teddy'.
What to do? I messaged her Mum and she liked my suggestion so I stamped quite a few images for her to colour and also added a packet of unused crayons and quite a few plain and twinkly felt tipped pens. Apparently Gabriella fell upon the sparkly felt tipped pens and began colouring right away!
My next batch of images for Gabriella (and now one of her brothers) to colour is already under way - along with some using pigment ink which can be water coloured as a change. Keeps me out of mischief :)
