The Grandchildren have been using my cutting dies

Hi Bloggers :D
Two of my grandchildren had fun playing in my craftroom yesterday.

6year old Avah loves my Marianne Ballerina die and wanted to use it to make a card.
I'd been trying out my new Die'sire (Aurora) die,and she'd  spotted the cut I'd made with plain white cardstock, so that was on the menu :)
So together we came up with this card, finished off with a bow from my new Tonic 3d bow set  CED1405 (set of 2)
Avah did most of the construction, admittedly with lots of help from me along with her input.

Her big sister Niamh (10 years old at end of Sept) watched us using the Big Shot as we cut and embossed the dies and wanted to do hers by herself.
The Tonic 3d bow I had already made and the swirls she pinched from my stash.
She cut, embossed and assembled everything else herself, she made up the flower with no input from me but I had to trim the pink cardstock for her with the guillotine for safety sake.
Wouldn't let me near her during assembly - not bad hey?

This is one Niamh made last year from die-cuts I had made...
10 year old Grace made this card in May this year...
I'd been showing her how to use the brayer to colour plain white card stock and this is the card she came up with herself.
The girls would love a big clap from you as they're very proud of their masterpieces :)
Many thanks for stopping by ;)
