Crafter in Training

I made a couple of "Thank You" cards for the family members we stayed with on our recent trip. Kennedy has been with me on several occasions when I have been making cards and has wanted to make a cards as well. I decided to start taking pictures of her work too. She's getting pretty good at it.

This is a card I made for my Uncle Bob and Aunt Cindy who live in Wichita, Kansas. They are dog lovers so I thought it would be fun to make their "thank you" card with a dog. The papers are scraps from an old Bo Bunny pet line. The stamp is from Unity. I colored the image with my Copic Markers. The picture doesn't show it but I used glossy accents for the eyes and dog tag for dimension and interest and popped the image with dimensional tape.

Here's Kennedy's card.
She colored the image using markers and water colors. She also picked out the papers. I just helped her put the card together.

The next card I made for my Uncle Philip and Aunt Mary Ann who live in Tulsa. I forgot what line these papers were. These were scraps left from another project. I absolutely love this large "Thank You" stamp. It is acrylic by Hero Arts.

Can you tell that Kennedy really like this image! She colored the image and picked out the papers. I matted the image and added the strip of hearts then stamped thank you on the card. This card is 6x6 because she wanted the bird and umbrella to show.

She was really proud of this one and so was I!

Have a good one.


  1. Yay! Cards from you AND Kennedy! Hers are awesome! She did so good! And I love yours too!!
