We are going to use this page to highlight some of the beautiful and creative cards that my son makes. Sometimes he participates in challenges, but most times he relies on his own creativity to come up with his ideas. You will want to check back fairly often to see what T’s latest creations are.

Okay, this isn’t a card, but T carved this all by himself:
Okay, the pattern was from a book, but he did all of the work.

Okay, this is a bit early but for tomorrow’s Scrappy Hours challenge, T agreed to make a card to share. I am going to ask people to make something for one of the children on on the Make A Child Smile web site. T decided to make a card for Heather C. who loves elephants and whose favorite colors are pink and purple.
What do you think? I hope she will like it.

While T isn’t as into making cards with me as much any more, when I suggested making a corner bookmark that I found a tutorial for over at Split Coast Stampers, he was more than happy to join the fun. He used a free digi-stamp that I got from over at Cuddly Buddly as his focal point and this is what he came up with:

Over at A Spoon Full of Sugar this week, they invited the parents to get their kids to make a card with them. Now, it didn’t use to be a chore for T to make cards, but as he has gotten older, he isn’t quite as interested in making cards with me. But, because of the challenge, he made an exception and made this card:
He created it as part of The Taste of Success challenge. Okay, I kind of coerced him into being a guest designer for this challenge, but I don’t think he really minded.

I had hoped that T would finish his card in time for me to post it along with the Scrappy Hours challenge for March since he used my recipe, but that didn’t quite happen. Oh well. He also wants to post this card for the latest challenge over at Stamp Something which is also a recipe challenge – Designer paper, buttons and ribbons.
Riley is darling popping out of his egg and I love how T embellished his card.

When T overheard me saying that the latest challenge over at Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge was to create a card inspired by one of the four seasons, he decided to join the fun so that he could use his new squirrel stamp. Squirrels say fall, don’t they? Well, here is his autumn-inspired card:

Yesterday, we went to Create IT Crafts and bought a couple of new stamps. This morning, T set to work on a card using one of the new stamps. Since it is an animal stamp, it works for the most recent challenge over at Paper Take Weekly: Animal Antics. Here is his card:
Now, you are probably wondering where the animal is. It is on the inside, of course:
The cute little hippo (with a bird on its head) is a Snag ‘Em stamp. T used a card from the Cricut Wild Card cartridge and got creative with using different papers. Let him know what you think.
