This week at 'WhatIsYourFaveThing.blogspot.com', the challenge is to do your favorite flower... at first I did a card... because all I could think of was a sunflower card... and they are ONE of my favorite flowers... BUT... when it was done I started writing down some of my other favorite flowers... and I realized I didn't just have one... I had several... so what's a girl to do... so I decided to try something... I made little seed packets of the flowers I love with sayings of how flowers make me feel... and put them on skew sticks, then made a distressed pot out of paper and distress inks to put the packets in... what I had invisioned was a bit different... but I do like it... PLUS it has all the flowers (I can remember) that I LOVE...
Rainee is always picking me flowers... mostly dandelions... but whenever we see a flower she makes sure I see it and we go take a sniff of it... and she says... "I know you mommy... you're a flower girl!"... it's so sweet that she knows some things that I love... it helps me know she's seeing who I am and what things I like... and that is a wonderful thing!!
I also thought I'd share the 2 cards Rainee made for her cousins... One day this week she just sat down and said... I'm making those cards today... and she did... and I think they turned out super... the only thing I did was print the picture and punch it out for her... otherwise it's all her... and the cutest thing is... she asked me to make sure I took pictures of them just I do my scrapbook pages and cards... I think I will cool to watch and see how she develops in her artistic abilities... personally I think they are the bomb for a 5 year old!
