With Love, From Grandma

Olivia is my 3 year old grand daughter, and only grand child at this time. For her 3rd birthday, I sent her an art desk and momma filled it up with all the goodies. I'm very happy to report, that she spends many an hour creating her special art.

Her momma told me that Olivia loves getting her own special mail. So this year, I have vowed to try and send her a card or piece of art each month. This is the first card I sent in January, I believe the stamp is from Rubber Stamp Ave., but can't remember for sure. It was water colored using Tombow markers and highlighted with a splash of glitter.

The next card is the one I just finished for Valentine's Day. It was a storybook image that I photocopied onto Bristol paper and colored with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol.


I used a Sharpie Poster paint pen to doodle on the design and a few gel pens for highlight. Here's a close up of the card when it was finished.

Apparently the cards are a big hit, she made her momma read it to her several times.

So, when's the last time you made a children's card? What are you using for images? It's like a breath of fresh air.

Hi Julie am sure she was over the moon to received these cards, totally perfect for her age group, lots of great colour and images.
I avoid cardmaking where possible, but did give one of my grand-daughters a childs cardmaking kit so she could make her own.....neat...lol Annette x
