I'm 9 years old. My favorite color is hot pink. I started this blog because I really wanted to make cards. I saw Mommy do it all the time and it looked pretty fun. My mom told me I could have my very own blog and I'm so excited that I did it! It's all because of Mommy <3

Tou Can Play

Paulette at Create with TLC asked *ME* to be a guest designer for her!  Can you believe it?  I was so happy and excited.  She let me pick out any image from her store and I picked Tou Can Play.  To see my card and a little write-up about me at Paulette's blog, just click here!

I started by coloring the toucan with my Bic markers.  Then, I chose which Spellbinders Nestabilities I wanted to use to cut out the sentiment.  After that, I went into Mommy's box of scraps to select the patterned paper and the cardstock.  After I tested all the papers out, I thought there was a little something missing so I added the pink heart using a Fiskars punch.  Once I was happy with the what I had, I used adhesive to put it all together.  I really, really hope you like it!

Thank you, Paulette, for choosing me to be a guest designer!

Have a Sweet Day, Cupcake!

I chose this cupcake from Beccy's Place to use on my card because it looks so cute.  I colored the image with Bic markers and made sure that all the colors went together.  The sentiment from Create with TLC went perfectly with it.  All the paper I used was from Mommy's scrap stash.  Since I chose birthday patterned paper, I thought this would make a great birthday card.  After finishing, I thought it needed a little something more, so I added the stars.  This was the other card I made at JoAnn's in Grapevine, TX with Linda Mitchell.

The Flying Heart

I call this Meljen's Designs image "the flying heart."  When I get excited, I flap my arms and hop up and down.  My mommy says I look like I could take off just like this "flying heart." All the papers came from Mommy's scrap stash.  The sentiment is from Scrap-a-licious Times.  I made this card at JoAnn's in Grapevine, TX with Linda Mitchell, another Operation Write Home card maker.  Thanks for inviting me, Linda.  I had a DINO-MITE time!
