When I woke up this morning, Lexi wanted to color and make cards right away. I told her that I needed to have my morning routine first...Have my coffee and read my emails and blogs. I had a hard time convincing her. So, I finally gave in and made cards with her. She has to copy every little thing that I do to a card and sometimes that can be frustrating, because she needs my help. And when I am making a card, I have to stay focused. But enough of my complaining. I am happy to be teaching her new skills and developing a creative side to her. I made this Riley card for the Hanna Release Party. The challenge was to make a card with a summer/outdoor theme. I used Surfing Riley with CTMH Hang Ten. The waves are made by tearing pieces of cardstock. The nice thing about the CTMH cardstock is that it has a white core to it and when torn you can see it. I have Riley on a pop dot to give him a 3D look and the orange paper is random stamped.
