This blog post belongs to....

This blog post is for my daughter. She loves to create things. Gee wonder where she gets that from. She loves stamps. She boldly walked into my scrap pile (room) Friday night and said she wanted to make her pastor a Christmas card. I said "Okay!" and asked what she would like to put on it. With her eye quickly looking around and spying some vintage Christmas stamps, she started naming things she saw. I said - "Oh, so you don't want to use the penguins, reindeer and Christmas tree stamps"? "Oh... well... I didn't know you had those kind of stamps". and when she saw them her eyes got big. So, instead of a one card night, it was a three-card night. And since I knew that Cath at the Moxie Fab blog had a challenge for "creatures", I asked her permission if I could take a photo of her cards. Oh, and in case you are wondering... the Penguin card isn't shown because it went straight to her children's pastor a few hours after making it.
So.... presenting Miss Arielle's Moxie Fab challenge Christmas cards, featuring "all creatures great and small".











Stamps are "Penguin Holiday" and "Beauty of the Season" from Hampton Art. And a little disclaimer here - my daughter did all the stamping, stamp placement and marker coloring. I DID, however, let her use my "good" markers for the coloring. I also tied the ribbon and sewed on the button. She's only in 2nd grade. Maybe I'll teach her to sew next year.(wink)

Thanks for stopping by!
