I'm a very bad 'blogger' because.....

...I just keep forgetting to 'blog'!!

Any way, thought I'd start again with this card my 6 year old grandson made while he was with us for the Easter break!
He used 4 of the Craft Stamper free Stamps..................
Quite good I'm thinking! He inked and stamped and coloured in! (I will say my face was an absolute picture when I said 'Lets colour that in with your pencils and he appeared with a box of my Distress Markers! But I thought, Hey ho! I loved using 'grown up' pens and paints when I was his age - it's a bit special and stays with you for life!).  Here are my efforts:
 My  'Alice' themed card!

The 'Alice Falling', 'White Rabbit' and 'Alice: Drink Me' are all Mabel Lucie Atwell stamps from the Artistic Stamper (sadly retired - I was lucky enough to buy the last ones!)

The cardstock is Crisp Canteloupe from Stampin' Up!

The paper for the panels is a retired one, again from Stampin' Up! (But check out their new ones - lots of lovely papers in the main catalogue and in the Spring/Summer catalogue!)
The stamped images were coloured with Distress Markers and the card 'closed' for posting!

This is my 'Tea Anyone? Card for Dee! I know she likes a cuppa!!
Hope you like it!

 I love it! Please leave a comment xxx


  1. Love your grandsons attempt think you may have a buddy crafter in your midst and I love the pop up box cards keep meaning to try but never get round to doing it. I know what it is like to blog thinking noone reads them so I thought I would let you know I did and I liked x

    1. Thank you Lorraine! I love making things with my Grandson and I think he enjoys it too (well, he never says no when I suggest a bit of crafting!!). A word of warning on the box cards - they are addictive - you can't stop at one!!!


Thank you for looking at my blog! Please leave a message before you go! I love reading them and I get to make new friends! xxx
