Ellie's 1st real design!


Today Ellie's elementary school had Kindergarten registration so she had no school. I decided we needed some one on one time together so she is spending the day with me. One of the things we have done is make a Mother's Day card for her mom, my dd. She wanted roses and that's what she got! Ellie age 6 1/2 stamped this herself placing the roses and butterflies where she wanted them. I am amazed at how well she designed this! I only had to help her get started with the stickles. Ellie has made many cards but not something like this, I know Sue will treasure it. We are trying to make her Mother's Day a pleasant one with her DH out to sea. I am so proud of how much this little girl has grown in the past year.Looks like another stamping family member!

Friday morning: I'd like to thank all of you for the kind words to Ellie about her card. I'll show her next time she comes over, she will be so happy! Her artistic talent comes from her dad who when he has the time, has done wonderful drawings.
Have a beautiful and blessed day!
