Mother – Daughter cards

My daughter loves to spend time in my craft room making cards with me.  Since last week was my son’s 12th birthday, it gave us a perfect opportunity to do that.  This is the card I made.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Matthew has a special talent with the computer and is amazing when it comes to graphic arts.  He could probably teach me a few things on Photoshop and he is completely self-taught.  He astounds me with the things he manages to teach himself.  As soon as I saw this image by Dustin Pike, I knew it was the perfect one for his birthday card.  I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol and added a touch of Glossy Accents to the banana on the computer.  I matted the image onto a Orange Zest scalloped square.  The patterned paper is from my stash and I used a border punch to make the scalloped border.  I stamped the sentiment in Orange Zest onto my Kraft card base.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here is the card my daughter made.  She informed me that it looks like I made her card and she made mine.  I think she was trying to tell me hers is better.  She chose to use this image from Phindy called “It’s all yours”.  She colored it with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol.  Isn’t it just adorable!  I think she did such a great job!  She matted it onto Spring Rain cardstock and chose some paper from the DCWV Sweet Stack and Spring Rain as her card base.  She had me tie the brown ribbon around the paper and then added the button.  She told me what she wanted and how she wanted it all laid out.  I think I have some big time competition on my hands.  I am so proud of her!

Karen, this is so wonderful! You both did an awesome job! Your sin is sure to be pleased! I have a great time crafting with my granddaughter, too! Is it just me, or do they seem to pick up on things a lot faster than we did?!?!?! Blessings to you and the family!
