Oh, the messes we make when mom and I do a craft day....Mom brought out a bunch of paper-craft supplies, and wanted to help me make some cards to give as gifts, or perhaps to sell at a craft show. We had a great day together but spent half of it setting up! I pulled out all my scrapbooking supplies to add to the pile, and we had the makings of a great construction project. It was really fun to return to my five-year old sense of creativity with glue sticks and plastic scissors. We had some really pretty papers to choose from, stamps and ink, interesting pens like a white marker, punches to embellish corners and edges, and ribbons in differing widths. Mom taught me some new techniques, like cutting out a stamped image to set it off from the rest of the design. Here's our handiwork:
The best present was the custom stamp mom bought me to use on the back of my work. The leaf--my favorite motif!
