Be Brave And Color On

Hello Again!

I took the summer off to spend quality time with my family, and then get everyone, (including myself!), back on track this fall.

I finally sat down with my daughter this week to do some coloring.  Oh my.  There are a few cobwebs still lingering over in the creative corner of my brain! Coloring wasn't really the problem.  Coming up with a card.....that was a bit of a hurdle.

Last May, Ava (8 yrs old) entered a card challenge at The Cat's Pajamas.  She won the challenge!  Here she is with the stamp set she purchased with her gift certificate!
She and I decided to enter a challenge at TCP using her new set! We entered the TCPTues299 Challenge.  
I truly feel that she was the creative one this time.  I like her card better than mine!  We chose to use the layout, and enter the  Sweet Sunday Sketch #287.

You be the judge!  I won't be offended if you choose Ava's.  Heck, I did!  :)

Here is Ava's Card:

She did this all by herself!  I did help with the fussy cutting, but that's it!  She chose the paper, she colored, she chose the shapes, EVERYTHING!  I love it! 
Ava used:
Be Brave Stamp Set by  The Cat's Pajamas
A paper pad called "Blue Hill" that we were given, and I no longer has the outer package, so I don't know who made it!
Circle Stackables Dies by Lawn Fawn
Die-Namics Grassy Edges by My Favorite Things

Here is mine:

I went more with a lion "costume" for my bear.  I'm trying not to be too hard on myself, as this was the first card in months!  I need to get back on track!  I do so love my craft time!
I used:
Be Brave Stamp Set by TCP
Same Blue Hill paper pad that I don't know the company.
Flower Nesting Dies by Xcut
Some jeweled embellies by Michael's
