Crafting with kids

That was the challenge this week on 2 Sketches 4 U.

Well, I only have two, one is 3-years old and another 6 months so I wisely picked the one who's out of nappies.

We have made cards before but that usually involves plastering a lot of stickers onto a sheet of paper and pronouncing it a card.

This time we sat down and picked everything out together. I helped him to glue down the paper and hold the sticky ribbon straight (well, kinda :D). He chose the rooster from pack of Martha Stewart chipboard animals and put the foam dots on all on his own.

I had to show him which way around to put letters om though! :D

So here's the young crafter Cillian:
And here is his work of art, which had to be given to Nana so fast I barely got a chance to take a photo!
I was very tired last night so only had energy to make a very fast card. I used Lily Bee papers since they were out already from my last project. I loved that sentiment from sheet of Pink Paislee rubons, so built the card around it.

Materials used:

Bazzill Kraft cardstock embossed with Sizzix texture plates, Lily Bee papers.

Fiskars border punch, Pink Paislee flower and rub-ons.

Ribbon is from Poppycrafts.

Thanks for looking!

Well, first let me say that Cillian is quite the little crafter! The card is just amazing. And yours? It's fantabulous! Wish I could make a quickie card look that good. Great cards from both of you!
