Donuts and The Boy Crafter!


Good to see you on this sunny, spring morning :)  I have a very special card to share with you today that my 9 year old son, Jack made for his Nana.  His grandparents have gone to spend a few months in the sunshine in Spain - they live quite close to us so we usually see them a few time a  week.  Jack visited my craft room this week to ask if he could make a card for his Nana and this is what he made:

He chose this sweet Hero Arts image and the colours that he wanted to use.  He coloured the image in with my Promarkers and did the die cutting.  (His colouring is better than mine!)The only bit I helped with was stamping the sentiment.  The Nana is made up from a Lawn Fawn alphabet and the main sentiment is from Hero Arts.  Jack often likes to see what I am up to and loves to put things through my die cutting machine or stick his finger in my embossing paste!  I was really impressed with his card and wanted to share it with you.  I am sure his Nana will love it :) 

I will also put Jack's card in to the current Nature Challenge at Hero Arts.

Next up is my effort for the current challenge at Inkspirational where the word prompt is Sprinkle:

I immediately thought of donuts with lots of sprinkles when I saw the challenge and used my new Reverse Confetti dies and stamps to make this card.  The donut base is cut from kraft card and inked around the edge with Tea Dye distress ink.  The icing is liberally coated with glossy accents and I dropped the die cut sprinkles over it. 
I will also join up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge to make a girly card as there is a lot of pink going on here.
I hope you like our cards and thank you for stopping by :)
