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!
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!

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!

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!
