Claire's Card (age 10) - Be Kind Be You

Hello friends!  I'm here to share a card my 10-year-old daughter Claire made for the current Simon Says Stamp Children's Summer Holiday Challenge where the theme is ANYTHING GOES!

My two daughters both love to make cards.  That makes me so happy...I love to be able to share a hobby with my kids!  I always love to see their creative thought processes in action...I especially love how they think outside the box!  They do things I would never think to even try. 

My daughters were playing with my Hero Arts Sweet Wonderful You clear set, and they each made a card for their friends.  (I will post Mary's card separately.)

Claire colored her card with colored pencils and added the grass accents with markers. The word bubble is from the Hero Arts Write Your Message set while the sentiment is from the Hero Arts Anytime Messages set. 

I adore these little girl stamps by Hero Arts...they are perfect images for girl cards, and I reach for them all the time.  Funny that my daughters reach for them now, too!

Thanks for stopping by...Claire really appreciates it!
Take care,
