Lily and her glue stick

 ED Note: The 'gluing' photo in now posted!
Sentimental Sundays is sponsoring an optional challenge to craft with a child. I heard about this challenge at my friend's blog, She Stamps.
Lily comes to visit two days a week. She just turned four and she truly believes that every thing in my craft room is HERS! Do not, I repeat, do not tell her that the glue stick is not hers!!!! She has used up all of her purple glue sticks and is now enjoying the big white glue stick. It's so big that she runs her flowers and ribbon and fibers over the glue stick while it sits upright on the craft table. It is a sight to see. She knows not to take the big paper and she can have the scraps from the scrap drawers that are placed by color families. the front of each drawer is labeled and she knows which is which! do you think because the words are printed with the color of the scraps? Scroll to the end for the newly added photo.
Well, Thursday was her yellow day. she isn't a a yellow kind of girl! But who's to say? She had folded a large piece of Barely Banana and was in the process of making her Mims a card. I asked her if she wanted ribbon and I do not need to tell you her answer!!!!! I handed over the entire container and her eyes got so big!
She crafted all day Thursday. After her nap, she insisted on more crafting downstairs. AND down we went.

Rather than run at the mouth any's her art!!!

The inside

  The tiny cards that are special...per Lily!!!
She commented on this one above. "See Mims, this one doesn't color all the way."
She liked the feel of the card stock and how it had a look where the crayon only picked
up the texture!!!
Lily pretty much puts her name on every thing that she creates.
She wrapped the pink ribbon all around the card, closing it shut. 
"There's a surprise in there for MOMMY!" she said.
All the cards she put in a ziploc that she 'found' to take them all home.
AND then she forgot the bag here.
She'll be back on Wednesday...shall I get a pic of her using the glue stick?
Now for her grand mother's card using a sentiment and a Delightful Inspiration image.
This lil dazzler is called 'Flutterby Fairy'!
The sentiment is from Verve's 'Happy Phrases".

and a close up before I cleaned her face of all the dazzling diamonds.

Thanks for coming by!!!

Thank you for sharing the stories about Lily with us. What a sweetie! Liz used to do the same thing with the glue stick. Funny how they figure it out.

Lily, your cards are beautiful! I love the ribbons, flowers, and most of all how you write your name. Great job! All works of art should be signed. Keep crafting with your Mims. I'll be watching her blog for more of your artwork and cards.

Joanne, Your card is lovely too. The little fairy is so sweet. I love the girly-ness of it.

Thank you both for joining the Sentimental Sundays challenge.

What a wonderful post! Sounds like you had a wonderful time. I just made cards with my 2 boys and daughter, and I wish I would have taken a photo before sending them (the cards) off. They were so proud! I love your card and how it sparkles! So pretty!
