Vicariously crafting through my 12 year old daughter!

Hi blog friends. It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything with real substance in a while. Partly, because I was taking a painfully fast summer class. It was basically cramming an 18 week course into six weeks. It was intense, to say the least. I’ve also been working part-time and taxing the kids around during summer break. One thing I was not able to do was craft at all, so my dearest daughter Tyla who is 12 years old, took up the offer to help me make some cards for various occasions. I am so proud to see that she is liking to my number one hobby and I can see extreme talent here. Then again, That’s no surprise, the girl is a natural at pretty much anything she tries. I guess I am a little bias but what can I say, you’d be too if she was your girl. So without further delay, here’s my gorgeous daughter.

Now here is what crafting Tyla made, she even jumped on pile it on challenges to see what she could well, pile on. She’d like to enter her card in these challenges:

Top Tip Tuesday – make it girlie

The play date café PDCC92 – Coral, petal pink, antique gold

The paper shelter – Anything goes

If the shoe fits – Summer

Paper cutz – Under the sea

RRR – Cool it

Stamp something – summer fun something

And Here is Tyla’s wonderful card

And a Closer look at all the great detail.

She used Stampin Up papers/ ribbons and copic inks. The stamp set is stampendous I believe it’s called Sushi. Baubles, seed beads, stickles in various shades including gold. pink. and blue. She added crystal effects as well. I hope you enjoyed her card and I am sure she will enjoy reading every comment left for her! Have a fantastic day. ~Angela and Tyla too!
