Crafting with my niece

I'd a nice crafty evening with my 8yr old niece as she made a card for her mum.   After a bit of a hunt through some of my stamps (she says I have a lot of stuff hahaha) she decided to use this MFT penguin set.  She coloured them with pencils - her colouring is neater than mine!  She then added clear gloss and glitter to the beach towel and the ice cream and as you can see she's a fan of sequins!
I'd like to enter her card into the Simon Says Stamp Kids Summer Vacation challenge.

Here's a close up of her card - sorry it's not the best quality, it was a bit of a rush photo!

My card for this evening is for the MFT summer school challenge - complementary colours

I went for the purple/yellow theme, hope my touches of green are OK!
I've used a Prima stamp and coloured with watercolour pencils, and added a few dots of clear gloss to the long purple flowers - no idea what they're supposed to be, but they're kinda like a mini version of my delphiniums!

  3. Your niece is too cute for words. She has that fresh-faced innocence of an 8-year-old, and her card is lovely. Your card is lovely, too, Lynne. I like your purple and yellow flowers. Of course, your hand-drawn border is the perfect touch to finish up your card.
