Guess who has been crafting ....

...... not me that's for sure!!! I am having serious withdrawl symptoms though let me tell you!!! A couple of weeks ago I promised my little niece Emily that she could come and spend some time making cards with me and she made sure I kept my promise bless her. She has been so excited for over a week that I just had to put my work to one side for a few hours.

Emily let me know that she wanted to make christmas cards for her mummy, daddy and big sister Hannah - looked like some serious crafting was needed. I have been sorting a lot of my crafty stuff out for her and she has her own craft drawer now (along with all my stash at her disposal, lol) to play with.

I am amazed how straight this little cutie can place peel offs - she is only 5 and didnt even get tangled up in them!! Poor little Emily had a rotten cold too but she was determined to get her cards made!! I had to guard my copics with my life rofl, I love her dearly but use my copics - good taste but no way young lady!!!

Here she is with the finished products - how brilliant are these! I only helped with the MS punch and cuttlebug but she HAD to turn the handle, lol .... so independant! Interestingly she chose all Whiff of Joy images - they are so appealing to all ages don't you think.

As you can see .... more is more!!! Another embellisment addict - aahhhh, a chip of the old block. So funny too that Emily had to have flowers, brads and spacers on her cards - what can I say, she is a natural. After this photo Emily decided that the dog needed a card too so she made a quick one for Patch - what a pro, lol. We both really enjoyed our afternoon and are both totally shattered now.
I hope to be back crafting in another week - assignment due to be handed in next Monday. I cannot wait to be back here with you all ... missing you loads xxx

Seems to me you are going to have to lock away all your best goodies or a certainly little lady is going to expect to use them. Her cards are brilliant for a 5 year old, but with you as her tutor she had the best teacher helping her. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxxxx

Hi Marcea

Emily looks a lovely little girl - and how lucky she is to have a craft draw in your craft space.

Looks like she enjoyed her craft session - I bet you are her hero.

Hope that assignment is finished soon!!!

Love Jules xx

Ah, she is so sweet and what a clever little lady, so talented!! You must be proud of her! Jo x


What a little cutie your Niece is Marcea (love the cards she made), and doesn't it give you a great feeling to pass your crafty knowledge onto the young ones. I know what you mean about the Copics though - I hide mine before the grandchildren arrive!
Have a great week - love, Sylvia xxx
