Daddy's birthday card from Isabella (3yrs)
Thank you for stopping by! Second post today, you can find the first one here! I promised to show you a card that Isabella made for her Daddy for his birthday!
Isabella loves going through my stamp drawer and I let her use some now and then. I have some older inks and wooden stamps that she loves to play with. One of her favourite things to do is to use my stencils. She loves to take my fluorescent markers or her paints and she's off! Isabella loves to craft and was introduced to all kinds of media. She's been crafting with me since she could hold a crayon so is used to creating her own little artworks. I love the proud look on her face when she's finished waving it above her head shouting "Mummy, mummy,... loooook!" I will never forget the moment when she drew 3 circles and said they were the Tomliboos!
Chloe' is now starting to copy everything her big sister does so we let her join in when we do colouring and she loves to make squiggles. She's only 10 months so it's more about exploring than creating.. and I have to watch her as I'm sure she'd love to taste the crayons too!!
Here's Isabella making the card:
And here' Bella proudly holding the card:
I think she did a wonderful job! Apart from me taping the stencil down for her and watching her not to mess up my living room table she did all of this by herself. The colour choices and patterns, the whole making of the card is her doing. She stamped 'I love you' all over the inside. I gave her a choice between 'Happy Birthday' and 'I love you' and she went for the latter saying it's for Daddy! She also insisted on stamping a lot of presents all over it as it was for his birthday, she explained! :)
Simon Says Stamp is running a Summer Vacation: Kid's Challenge with 'Anything Goes' theme so I thought this would be a wonderful opportunity for her to win a goodie bag for her gorgeous card and believe it would be well deserved. I'm so proud of her regardless!
I hope you have a fabulous weekend and do pop back tonight or tomorrow as I will have the promised Altered Mini Playing Cards.
