Our youngest granddaughter (age 10) LOVES making cards and every time she is here she wants to play with my things.  When it comes to dealing with the Cuttlebug, she needs no instructions.  She's been making cards with me for several years. She even teaches her older sister what to do when she is here too.

This isn't the best picture, but she chose a light pink card stock for her base and then embossed the design around the edge with a Stampin' Up! folder.  The tulips were done using colors of her choice and are from a SU set.

She also has to decorate the inside of her card which is pictured below.  She nearly always begins with "making grass" with a Martha Stewart punch.  The designs below are all stickers that I had and I told her to use whatever she wanted to make her own design.  Of course if you have grass you have to have a sky so she stamped a hot air balloon and rainbow and then die cut two clouds.  She colored the hot air balloon and rainbow with the same colors she had used on the tulips on the card front.   It is so fun to see what she comes up with.

Thank  you for coming by today.

OK, first I want a Grandchild! LOL! Tell Taryn that this card rivals any that I've seen on-line, well done!
