From this to that




Since moving to Texas, I've started attending a monthly Stamp Camp with a local Stampin' Up distributer. It's been really fun to finally pursue something I've wanted to do for so long. And, it's been fun to discover that I can do it!

So, this is my first official card that I did on my own - and I must admit, I'm a little thrilled with the way it turned out. I made a bunch of them as thank you notes for Little One's birthday presents.

The pictures above are of his first finger painting experience. I brought out the finger paint a few months ago, and he wanted NOTHING to do it. He did not like getting his hands messy and just wanted to draw. It's amazing how drastically things can change in a matter of months! I brought out the paint again last week - and he just couldn't really get enough. He now calls his fingers paintbrushes. :)

Anyway, I traced his hand on a piece of card stock and using that as a pattern I traced his hand- print all over the dried finger painting picture. Cut out the hands, pasted on another piece of card stock and cut out again. There was a lot of cutting involved, but it was so worth it. And, Grandparents, Aunty Ally and Uncle Carter all got a little piece of his first finger painting.
