We are now on the home stretch!! This was the last full week of index cards.
Not long to go now. I am so, so proud of my girl-child for sticking with this.
I would also like to thank everyone especially for the kind comments that are left for her, she reads and luxuriates all of them, and I am pretty sure that is one of her most motivating factors! :) She has even had me read some of them out to her grandfather to illustrate her growing fame!! (Plenty of modesty on those shoulders! :D)
Here are our cards for the week:
I was playing with circles and scrap paper, while Victoria saw birds in love. (To be honest she did this card a couple of weeks ago and then she misplaced it, we found it this week much to her delight!)
I was playing with the scraps from yesterday’s card and some circles that did not make it into the mix. I prefer this card, I love that you can see the packaging stamp on the gift bag I cut up and that you can see part of the advertising for the theatre’s seasonal programme I have been using as well. The papers have both been used on a lot of cards this year! The book text was left out for some reason and when I saw it, it seemed right for the card given it came out of the previous card. Victoria cur up some cardstock and pieced it back together.
I realised last week with my flowers that I had stuffed up the design somewhat so I was not done playing with them yet. This still was not quite what I had in mind! :) Victoria made a bunny with a stencil she has and then added on some decorations around the rabbit.
I was still playing with the flowers and still not happy. Victoria was exploring heart connections. :)
I was playing with scraps and Victoria dug out her watercolours.
I cheated with this one, I was about to throw my burnt incense sticks in the bin and then wondered if I could use them on a card, I saw a clothes line and couldn’t find background papers I wanted so I painted some background paper to use on this card. I do feel a bit bad about it, but I love the background more. :) Victoria was seeing watercolour rainbow trees and cloud hearts.
I was using up more scraps in my collage box (including the face which was a quick lesson for my boy child on using inktense pencils), and Victoria inked up her fingers and created a family with their dog. The family is loosely based on us, and I notice the boy is unnamed. She has some problems when she discovered that the honorific for a young boy is Master, and after making us prove it to her via the dictionary and google (which is apparently more reliable than my dictionary!), she clearly decided to leave him blank, though I did suggest to her that she could just use “Mr.” as well. She was not happy that her brother have “Mr.” either when he is “just a child like her and she has to have “Miss.”, I personally adore that she even went to that place!!
I am linking up over at Tammy’s where she has recently announced another prompt challenge about to begin after ICAD ends.

I hope you are all have a fantastic weekend!
