Last night my son asked if he could make a card using my Cricut. Well, I just about fell off my chair! lol He has a "girlfriend" in 6th grade and wanted to make her a special card for Christmas.
If I may boast for a moment, my son, Michael, is 11 1/2 and he has the kindest heart. It just warms MY heart that he wanted to do something for this girl that he likes. Just so you know, I'm not big on the dating thing in elementary school and do not encourage it, as my son knows, but I do encourage him to have "girl" friends just as much as having "boy" friends because I believe it balances a person to have friends of both genders. :)
On to the card - He designed this card himself using my Gypsy. Kids these days just pick up on electronics so easy! I showed him a few technical things using the Gypsy and he picked the images and the paper and I help him cut everything out.
The card is very simple, which is probably what I love most about it. He added stickles on the snow flakes (Star Dust) and Glossy Accents on the "merry" part of the sentiment. He also added a couple snow flakes on the inside of the card, which I didn't photograph since he had already written his friend a little note, and also added one snow flake on the outside of the envelope. It just "tickled" my insides to craft with him and watch him be creative. I am SO proud of him.
The sentiment is from the Cricut cartridge Celebrate With Flourish and the snow flakes are from Christmas (free with Gypsy update).
This will likely be my last post until the new year, so if you are reading this blog, have a very Merry Christmas and may you be blessed with love, peace and joy throughout the New Year.
