A Perfect Day

Hello everyone.
This post is because I found a little extra time to have a play this week. I love this image and I've used some embossing folders for interest, elegance and texture. love this technique its ideal for this occasion.

I hope you all are have a nice relaxing day, I've got to tell you my 5 year old Bobby is driving me nuts at the moment, he wants to make cards all the time. The only thing is i've been stamping him some of my images and as soon as my back was turned I caught him colouring with my promarkers EEEEEEK. So I have been and bought him some decent felt tips, Stabilo ones, they are nice and juicy and also look fancy too. I have told him they are Promarkers for children from Joanna Sheen, as he knows where I buy mine from.

And yes he is raiding everything else too in my craft stash, it's hard to keep him off my good stuff. But he is loving doing them and i'm loving the company too at my desk. My older two children used to craft with me and make lovely cards too when I first started to craft but then it wore off so it's nice Bobby wanting to do it now. Below is some of his cards he's made, that he insisted I put on my blog. Seems to have a thing for blue card though at the moment.

This is for the following challenges:-
1. Simon Says Stamp - New Something
2. Lili's Little Fairies - challenge # 1 - New beginnings
3. Crafty Catz - challenge 114 - A New Beginning
4. One Stop Crafts - Challenge # Bingo (Distressing inks, Pearls, Embossing)
5. Cute Card Thursday - challenge # 198 - What's New (flowers, and using embossing instead of papers).

Your card is of course lovely Tracy, but I'm afraid the star of this post is the one and only BOBBY !!

What a whiz kid he is turning into on the crafty front.

Bobby, I just blew up your cards to have a closer look and my oh my, how beautifully you have coloured them with those special children's Promarkers you Mum bought you.

I can see she is going to have to keep an eye on you as you might be taking over her DT places.

Happy days,

Blogging Brenda xxxxxxxxxxx
