We had such fun having our darling Daisy to stay until Wednesday. Our days were filled with trips to the swings, lots of chats and cuddles, dinner out, gardening and lots of stroking of Billy our cat. We went up to London on the train where we walked across the Millennium Bridge..
I am so delighted how much Daisy adores crafting and she cannot wait to get out to my studio. At 3 3/4 she also understands the concept of me entering challenges and I suggested that we made a card that I could enter into a couple of challenges for her. She could not wait to make a start!
She adores glitter, so that had to feature but she also loves drawing flowers. With those ideas in mind she chose some supplies and set to.
She also wanted to add a baby's bath (as you do) which is the pink creation in the corner. She was going to use a topper but decided to stick that inside the card.
after drawing some flowers she wanted to stamp some flowers and also test my new Distress Oxide inks which she had yet been able to play with. She really has amazing stamping skills already!
Her ideas just flowed...she also chose some glittery flower die cuts and I helped her put some glitter brads in their centres. That was the only help I gave.
If you look closely at the bottom of the card she also drew a blue person holding a bunch of flowers. I love her creativity and imagination. It is so fluid and totally unrestrained. She then took the markers again and coloured in the Paper Artsy stamped images.
Then it was glitter time...
Inside she wrote her name, again completely unaided.
...pretty good for a 3 year old and then I wrote some words for her which she traced over.
Some last glitter and then we left it to dry
Here she is proudly displaying her artwork.
I then took a "card challenge" photo for her and added a watermark.
Daisy would like to enter her glitter flower card into the following challenges;
Simon Says Stamp Children's summer challenge anything goes with sparkle
Pixie's snippets playground #295/6
A gem of a challenge Children's challenge
So my card today is not a glittery one but one to remind me how much my darling Daisy has grown up and to remember a fun few August days. Babies really are such a nice way to start people and my Daisy is growing into a delightful little person. I stamped a Lili of the Valley sentiment and made the card around it. I love these fun jungle die cuts. There were in the CVC sale last year. The papers are ancient. This has gone down to Dotty's to sell.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

Daisy went home on Wednesday and the house seemed very quite again. How blessed I am to have the pleasure of my little sweetie come to stay.
The bank holiday is ahead, we plan a quiet one at home. I have some designing to do and my Hb wants to help our son with some DIY so we will be very busy. The weather looks good, summer has returned so it will be lunch in the garden again...bliss.
Enjoy your day off on Monday and the holiday weekend. I will be back with my weekly Visible Image DT post.
Bye for now,
