Hero Arts Christmas...Day 4

Hi folks...fun fun fun was the name of the game yesterday in the cubbyhole...my gorgeous grandkiddies are on holiday from school and came to spend a few days at Grandma's but what do you do with two energetic youngsters when it's bucketing down outside. "Can we make cards" and here was me thinking it was going to be a get-away from the cubbyhole day. So we had a root around for some supplies and they got to work...making light work of the stamping and die-cutting...guess who'll be on the payroll for the next die-cutting prep marathon...
and you just can't make cards without adding some embellishments...

the finished cards...

they don't quite get the concept that you don't have to use the whole sheet of stickers on one card but hey ho...it's all about having fun. Oliver is giving his to Mummy & Daddy for Christmas...Brodie is hoping to make some cash by selling his to the highest bidder.
And my crafty contribution...
I could tell Brodie wasn't impressed with my tags when he repeatedly pointed out there were spaces and did I want to use some of his stickers.
See you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx

Looks like they had a brilliant time! My 9 year old step granddaughter loves putting stickers on too, I keep saying don't you want to colour in one of these nice images instead but she gives me such a disparaging look! Love your Christmas tree tags Kath! x

Jane said...

Hi Kath, the boys did well,it,s usually a struggle to get the remote controls out of their hands nowadays, it must be all your inspiation Kath. Enjoy your time with thethem. Your tags are lovely too...Trish

Carol D said...

Wow! These are fab Kath, Nice to sew they share your talent. They will get over the sticker thing I'm sure, and get them working prepping, Grace loves using the big shot.
I' m looking after Grace for a couple of weeks in the school hols too which are much later than in Scotland.

Have a lovely day.

That should say couple of days in a couple of weeks time. Got a stinking cold, my head is fuddled.

Great cards, they did a great job. :)

Hi Kath, Brodie sounds like a real entrepreneur already! Oliver and Brodie clearly had fun with Grandma and what a great idea to get them to help you with the die cutting - I am sure Brodie could be persuaded by some hard cash - lol. Your trees are so beautiful, love the addition of the buttons. Crafty hugs, Anne x

Well done boys great cards

Sharon (glitterangel) said...

ah bless, they've made lovely cards. I know exactly what you mean about the stickers - less is more doesn't come into it when you're little, my nieces overload everything with tons of stickers and glitter when they come to craft with me.

Artyjen said...

Oh dear, they are obviously not less is more types! LOL Lovely cards they made though ;)

Oh I laughed - I think I too prefer your trees without any more stickers on. Pretty impressive cards from the lads - they obviously have it in the genes & besides have a very very good teacher.

Kat said...

Love your tree tags Kath. And what can I say about the cards the boys made. Definitely inherited your talent for card making. Brodie's obviously a bit of an entrepreneur.
