World Card Making Day with my Daughter

This is my youngest daughter,
Natalie Miracle, who is not quite
4 and 1/2 years old. She is truly
a miracle girl as she was the baby
I was told by doctors that I would never have another. But God had other plans. Usually when you
ask God for something, the answer
is 'yes' or 'no.' In this case, His
answer was 'wait.' And wait we did!
I also have 3 other daughters, who are now 30, 23 & 21 years old...
and 3 grandchildren, 12, 11, & 4 (almost 5) and one on the way.
What a joy and blessing she is to my husband (Mark) and me!




Natalie has been very involved in my stamping business since day one. She gets her own little stampers and art supplies (even a sidekick) and we work together at times...all right, I don't get as much done myself, but that's all right, I'm raising a stampin' buddy!

What amazed me today is how much she put things together without alot of direction. I started by helping her die-cut the first heart and put tape under it. She decided it all from there out.


She practices the the layout...


Studies for what to do next.


Makes a goofy face while thinking.





It is now a butterfly and it needed a head.




Making his ears (antenaes)















Gluing on his legs.









Having a good time!









TA-DAA!!!!







This momma is very proud!
Hope you had a chance to stamp today! See ya soon!

An amazing way to spend WCMD. Looks like she's got some talent. She looks like an old pro putting that card together!

It's so wonderful when you have a buddy! My dd is now 13 and she's been stamping with me for years, sometimes I think she has better creativity then me.

Tell your miracle, her card is beautiful!!
