Mommy and Me Monday and a Little Paper Makeup!

Meredith, my 5 year old, has dubbed Mondays "Mommy and Me" days. We try to do the same things, stay in our pajamas as long as possible, make cards, cook, clean...everything (or as much as possible) together. It is one of our free days. This is her last year home before kindergarten, so I really enjoy this time as does she! She loves it when I post her creations on my blog, so I'm going to try to do it every Monday. I love the different things that she comes up with for cards...sometimes, she copies what I am doing, and other times, she strikes out on her own.

My card today is for Makeup for the Weekend #11 from Paper Makeup. I haven't done a challenge from PMS in a while, so I thought it was about time!! I love this little guy, Henry! He is a digi that I purchased and downloaded. I love the way he came out! I used Flower Soft "snow" to accent the edges!

Meredith always uses my PMS stamps...she loves them, and the monsters are her favorite. In fact, she gravitates toward Argus quite a bit! She likes to use my Liquid Applique, so she gave Argus some cool dots on his head, and don't you love her tie-dye effect? She ran this piece through the Cuttlebug all by herself, and she even trimmed the pink piece. She's getting better with the tools all the time. And, yes, I let her use my "special markers" aka Copics. She is really good with them, and I trust her with almost all of my craft supplies!

These are the Copics that I used to color the PMS image, and Meredith took some of the pictures today. I'm telling you, she amazes me at what she can do on the computer and with my camera!! Where do they pick this stuff up?

Hi Nancy - thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving a kind comment. Both these cards are so beautiful, and how lovely to be able to share your crafting passion with little Meredith - it's a wonderful hobby for children to get involved in.
