Bon Voyage Edwin!

Yea!! I got my summer kit last night. I was in the middle of doing my previous post for the Just Magnolia Challenge so I didn't get to them last night. My daughter did though. She saw that mermaid Tilda and was like...oh mommy...I want that one..please!! Her and  I sat in my room until quite late and made cards. I will post hers below too.  I figured since I didn't get to ink them all up, I would at least get the EZ-Mount on them so they would be ready for me in the morning.

First thing I had to do was clean up my craft room. Do you have any idea what kind of mess can be made, esp. having a 5 year old making cards with you. I don't know about you all but I have to clean before making another card. It can be a pain because boy do I make a mess when I make a card!!

So here is what i came up with out of the summer kit, I also used the sketch from Sketch Saturday




Edwin and background were colored with Copic markers. All the paper is from Close to my Heart. I used stickles on the waves. Sentiment is from CTMH and brads.

Now here is what my daughter made. She had a little bit of help from me, but not much. I tied the bows and helped her pick out some of the paper. But she did the rest.  She has even learned to use the cuttlebug and nesties. She did all the coloring herself, picked out the colors she wanted to use by herself too. Not to bad for 5...almost 6 (in August).  <3


Thanks for looking
Hugs,

Great job to both of you! My daughter turned 6 in March and makes cards with me all the time. It's nice to have a "partner in crime", isn't it? ;o)

Tracy...first things first. Your daughter is so beautiful! Her cards are just sooooo spectacular too!
I'm hoping my stamps hit the mailbox today, so I can get busy trying to make a card or two as beautiful as these!
Someday, we'll all have to share pictures of what one little card can do to a room, not to mention a house sometimes! If people only knew. Do you think Hallmark has the same problem? Have a great weekend!
