 Good Morning! 

Today we have a Guest Designer, 4 1/2 year old, Penny!

Penny is an avid crafter and loves to play, read and swim.
She is also my gardening apprentice.  

Today she'll make a card and show you her thought process, 
she even made a short little video for you all to follow along 
with her creative process.

Sit back and enjoy!

This card will be entered into the 

She is one colorful crafter!

Penny used the Simon Says stamp set, Wild Cuddly Critters.
Tuxedo Black ink.
Dies R Us Butterfly #2 set dies.
Crayola Markers.
She also did a little ink blending.  

She's all about the die cutting!

Loves to crank the handle.

Using the Misti like a Pro!

  She designed this card for her big cousin Kaitlyn who just turned 8!

Enjoy her video where she shows you how 
to color your 'center-ments'
And don't be afraid to use a lot of your favorite color PINK!

To make it so bright and beautiful.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
