Little Stamper

Wednesday, May 28, 2008

I went to Archiver's today and Kaitlyn happened to be with me. She decided that I needed to buy her some paper. So I directed her to the clearance section and told her she could pick out a few sheets, I then went to get what I went in there for in the first place. She picked out 5 sheets of paper and found these glitter letter stickers she thought she needed too. I ended up spending about twice as much money as I intended. So of course when we got home she was dying to stamp. In about an hour and a half she stamped 6 cards. I gave her an old idea book I had and she copied 6 different cards. In that same amount of time I made 6 cards except mine were all the same. Now in my defense I did have to keep stopping and help her cut the paper but all in all she out stamped me tonight. Here are the cards she made:







And she was so proud of herself (as was I).
*ETA-- I guess I should have said that she is 8 years old and will be in the third grade next year. She also is ADHD and so the fact that she sat and did this for an hour and a half is amazing.

These are wonderful cards. What a proud momma you are and what a talented daughter you have. May I ask how old she is? You may have spent more than you planned but in this case I think it was well worth it.
