My name is Cody (9 yrs old) and I like making cards with my mom too. I know mom was busy tonight cutting fabric, but I sneaked into her room and made a card too. She let me stay up late also. I hope I get up for church in the morning!
I wanted to make a card using the flag colors and I chose this card to case from the Featured Stamper here http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...&ppuser=125756. My mom stamped the image for me because I dont press hard enough to make it dark. I don't care for mice, but these mice are cute! Did I say that? I colored the image with colored pencils and stamped stars on the b/g blue c/s too. I mounted the image to red, then to the blue c/s. I had fun creating tonight. Thanks for looking at my card. Time for bed!
What do you think?
Things I change:
2. left off ribbon
3. stamped random stars as the b/g
stamps: HM flag, misc su star
c/s: navy blue, white, red
ink: navy blue, black
accessories: colored pencils

WOW! Cody, you sure surprised me this morning to find you sitting in room making this card. How did you sneak in without me seeing you? Must of been in the attic. I love your coloring and the way you used your mind of your own to stamp the stars in the background. Love mom!

Wow Cody- you and your brother are amazing!!!! I think it's so cool that you are stamping with your mom. When my son was younger, (he's 26 now) he used to show me how to shade when I colored because he learned in art class. Keep on stampin Cody~~
