Today i'm letting my 4 year old take over my blog. He's giving mama a break. Ok, so not really.
Most know this, but there may be a few readers that are newer to my blog, so here's my quick run down. My oldest son is 4 years old. He loves to craft with me and is very independent and adamant what he wants to do to a card or project and i do NOT get to help him! His teachers say the same thing. But at least he likes to craft with me, so i'll take what i can get!
Today, one of his friends in preschool turned 5!!!! He thought that was really impressive. My heart ached at the fact that in the spring... HE will be turning 5!!!!! WAAAAH!
Here is the card he made for his friend... other than getting out the airbrush for him... i had no part in this! (and yes, i'm crazy enough to let him use my copic airbrush... with a LOT of paper laid out on my table just in case!
He chose this alligator from a Close to My Heart stamp set because his friend "likes animals a lot". He colored him in with a G82 copic marker (he wanted to use a G28... i had to explain that it might be a little hard to see the alligator after using such a dark green, so he said ok and chose the G82). Then he cut him out. They have been practicing cutting in school and he was very pleased to cut everything out himself. Next came the airbrush. eeeeeek. This is the first time i've let him use it.
The ribbon at the top he was very pleased with as well. He is very into tying knots right now and he wanted one for his card. then he layed it across the top and said "there, now it's like one of yours". Perhaps i use ribbon a bit too much?
He added the stars in a "pattern". He said he was just going to have to have more than 5 stars even though he was turning 5 because he needed to finish the pattern. Silver Gold Silver Gold, Silver... what comes next mama? Um, Gold i say? Very good mama! Now you can have a star!
Then we decided it needed a sentiment and he said just make it say happy birthday. So i pulled out the Birthday Cheer set from Paper Makeup Stamps and told him all of these say happy birthday, so he can choose. And so he did.
He was so proud of his card... he even took the picture himself and told me i could type it for him later. hahaha.
I love my kid.
