Second post for today

I had to do this second post today. My Darling Daughter Aditi (she is 8 going on 18!) has made a card. Its school holidays now and she is very much into crafts. I have been teaching kids at school library and she would just drown herself into books for that one and half hour. But since two weeks, she is helping me out in my craft room, wanting to stamp, learning patiently when I teach her some tricks and techniques, constantly asking me how I did this!!!! So when I was making the butterfly cards, She too sat with me and made this card.

 
I did teach her to sponge the edges and placements of the layers. But the colors and stamping was all her. Infact the orange paper she has used in this card prompted me to team the color with SU's Soft Suede color and I ended making a card for Just-Add-Ink blog. She is so proud of herself. She too likes butterflies. And I should say, we had a great time making it. Mother daughter bonding thingy was happening. Very therapeutic huh! lol!  She would love to hear about her card. So please leave some lovely comments for her if you can. Thanks for stopping by :)
