My almost 5 year old was not really excited about learning his numbers and letters a year and a half ago. Smart mommy that I am, I decided to take him out back and have him write on the fence (kind of like a huge chalkboard). Now he is completely obsessed with writing numbers . He will do this for HOURS on end. We take turns writing numbers and we circle around and around the fence in the backyard---when that gets filled up---we write on the patio, the iron table, the playset, the slides---you name it. Our backyard literally looks like someone threw up numbers all over it.
It is a bit sick if you ask me but it sure beats playing power rangers.
Here is a quick card I did for the My Favorite Things sketch on Splitcoaststampers. I loved the sketch this week and was determined to get this one in!
All stamps are from My Favorite Things (http://www.mftstamps.com/). The image is stamped and colored. I used blue stickles on the star and blue and red stickles in the tree. I put a layer of clear glitter over the shadow under the penguins. The image is framed with a nestability scalloped rectangle. The sentiment is stamped and I used the scalloped punch from Stampin' Up! to frame it and I added a bit of ribbon. The cool wavy pattern is a template from Creative Memories.
The snowflakes on the decorative paper are outlined with the Ultimate Gel Pen- so in real life this really shimmers. I added the ribbon ties and brads to finish this up.
