I have something extra special for you today! I should begin by explaining that lately my eldest son Jake has taken a serious interest in mom's paper crafting hobby. I cannot tell you how special it is for me to be able to share something with him that I enjoy so much! After teaching him some of the card making basics and showing him how to use some tools he has just taken off! He has made several cards so far, but the one I want to share right now is the one he made for this month's PTI blog hop.
Didn't he do a great job? I told him that the challenge was to include the color pink and then I let him use his own imagination. He saw the strips I used for my first blog hop entry and he wanted to use some on his card. He chose the Smokey Shadow card base and adhered the strips himself. He then said he wanted to cut a heart of out the middle, so I showed him my PTI heart dies. He arranged them on the card himself and ran it through my Cuttlebug. I then made a few suggestions for papers he could use to back the cut outs and he chose the Raspberry Fizz polkadot paper. I just love this kid! Pink has always been one of his favorite colors!
I told him I was going to enter his card in the hop and he was super excited. I just know he would appreciate any comments you wish to leave him! Thanks for your support and thanks for visiting!
