World Card Making Day- The creative process of a 5 year old

Hello friends! I hope everyone has had a fabulous week. Work for me wasn't too busy, so I managed to sneak in some time making my daughter's Halloween costume. I am happy with how it is turning out so far. The main part of her costume is something that I have never tried before and it doesn't even require sewing. She tells me that she loves it! **insert happy dance**.

I have a little more news before I get on with this post. Over at the DeNami Design blog there are a couple of announcements. There are two new videos, a new glitter package and a new product. Wondering what it is? Then head on over to the blog to find out. And what would World Card Making Day be without a DeNami party and giveaway. There is a lot of fun going on this weekend. You can check out all of the world wide DeNami crafting on the DeNami facebook page. Can't wait to see what you create!

So this morning, my daughter and I spent a little bit of time creating a Halloween card for her teacher. She absolutely loves some of my smaller DeNami stamps. They are so perfect for her little, crafty, 5 year old fingers.  We used some of her own inks. Yes, she received them for Christmas 2 years ago. This girl loves to join me in my craftroom and create.

I let her pick out her favorites.
And what else would a 5 year old do while she is waiting for you to get the rest of the supplies out, but build a tower.

I instructed her to try and design her card first, before she inked up the stamps.
And off she went.
I love how she is checking her stamp to make sure that it has enough ink.
I did try to encourage her to use fall colors, but when a little girl loves pink, you just have to go with it. As you can see, she didn't even use my stamp-a-ma-jig to create her card. Way to go, Leah!
Now, all she had left to do was color her images.
And here is the artist with her card.
A final picture of her card which she finished off with some hand drawn stars. I love creating with her!!!
