Once In A while My Girl Gets Crafty

As every summer Simon Says Stamp challenge blog have a special challenge just for crafty kids. It is a thing enough to get my Aleksa interested in a cardmaking - well at least for couple of hours :)
She takes all these thing very seriously, so she started with studying my recently bought Cardmaking magazine for some inspiration. I gave here these Post-It index stickers to mark those pages where she saw a card that she would wish to make. In the end almost every page was marked :) But we got to choose the first one she marked - a quite simple layering with a lovely colored girl.
 Look at that concentration on her face while she is cutting the chosen image.
One thing she enjoys very, very much is drawing and coloring, so when I introduced her to watercolor pencils and gave her an art school worth lecture about light and shadows, she was happy to finally begin coloring.
Well as it was a very late evening, that was it for the day - and for the week :) But when her friend came along one day, I got both girls to make a card - or finish one. I will share the other card in a separate post to be able to enter them both in challenge, as Mr. Linky doesn't allow to enter one post twice :(
I am quite proud of my 6 year old girl - when she have a mind to it, she can make some pretty things :)
Well - of-course it is a mothers job to prize their children, but I do think that I have seen grown ups have images colored more poorly than she did - well maybe except for the bleeding parts :)

Lovely isn't it?
Well have a day full of sunshine,
