First Monday Card Challenge...on the second Monday

Well Logan and I were supposed to do our first monday card challenge last Monday, but I had so many fun highlights from regionals to show you that I decided to wait until the second Monday of the month. But Logan and I both made a card. Logan made his first. We used Pacific Point, Riding Hood Red and Tangerine Tango ink and cardstock. And white cardstock of course and some Close to Cocoa ink. We also used some Riding Hood Ribbon from the Dress Up ribbon orginals. For our stamp set we used a new one, that will be in the mini beginning April 1, it's called Choo Choo and we used the Right on Track wheel that goes with it. I have so many cute ideas with this set! Can't wait to use them! We also used a new set, also in the min, called Oval All and it coordinates with a new scallop oval punch!!!

Here's the card I made. Only 3 of the train cars fit across the card so I let Logan pick the 3 cars we would use.

And here's Logan's card. I did help with the ribbon but everything else he did, including tell me where to put the ribbon. Didn't he do a great job?!! Here's a cute story of what happened while the card was being made. He stamped the greeting from the stamp set Oval All and we punched it out using the new scallop oval punch and I helped him punch it and after it was punched he said "Wow, that's amazing!" And you know what it is amazing! He's just so cute and he did a really good job lining up the train, especially for a 2 year old!

Join us next month for another challenge. They're just so much fun for me and for Logan!

Holy wow, your 2 year old made that? That's incredible! I have customers that can't stamp that well. said...

Wow, what a cutie patootie Logan must be. he's an awesome stamper! I think it it's great that you stamp with him. I used to do that with my son and it really paid off. He's ten now and can make his own cards when he goes to birthday parties, thank you notes, cards to send Grandma, etc. I used to get him his own stamp sets for Christmas!
