Card making with DD

Friday evening my daughter (8-yrs old) wanted to make cards with me. (I think it was a stall tactic to avoid cleaning her room, but I enjoyed the time with her any how.)

She picked "Cherry on Top" from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Sweet Stuff digital stamp set. She colored using her own pencils, my glitter pens, and used the same paper as I was using. (Details below.) Inside she wrote "Have a very cherry day". If you can, please leave her some comments, she loves reading them.

I made this card using the Mojo Monday (#119) sketch for inspiration. The grumpy cow (isn't she cute?) is from the Rusty Pickle's Digital Delights. I don't know about you, but I have definitely had "those" days...or so my husband tells me. :)

This card also qualifies for Crafty Creations challenge #48 - make your new year glitter. Although it doesn't show up really well in the photo, the polka dot paper is glittery and I used a glitter pen on the cow bell, the bow, and the edges of the flower. The ribbon is also shimmery.

It also qualifies for the What's Digital Stamping Group recycling challenge on Yahoo. The buttons were pulled off a card I received quite a while ago. The ribbon is also recycled. (It was still sticky on one end and has some snags which I put under the DP panel.) I am not sure where it came from but it was at the bottom of my ribbon basket. I wanted to used more recycled items but it just did not work out.

By the way, come join us in the What's Digital Stamping Group on Yahoo. It is free to join and the members share tips and trade advice (including where to find freebie). Everyone is welcome whether you are experienced with digital stamps or just trying them out for the first time.

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
