My New Stamping Buddy

I wanted to introduce a new stamping buddy of mine.  Her name is Alli, she is my 11 year old niece and she has recently taken up the craft of stamping. 

My brother and his family moved to north Texas last May and I am sad to say, until that time I had very little contact with my nephew and niece.  However after leaving the corporate environment in late September I have been able to "get to know" my family and it has been a wonderful experience and blessing. 

Alli and I have discovered that we both like crafting so recently we have spent a couple Saturdays playing in my long ignored craft room.  Her first card ever was the lovely creation above which she gave to me.  It was a thank you for letting her come over and play.  Believe me, I cried when I read her words. 

She did up two very beautiful cards for her mom and grandma for Mother's day the Saturday before the made-up holiday but we ran late that day so in our mad scramble to get her home I forgot to take pictures.  Both cards were beautiful and I have no doubt that in very little time she will be showing me how it's really done.  LOL 

0ur plan is for Alli to come by one day a month so we can bond and make cards, so hopefully we can dust off my supplies and start posting more. 

Thanks for stopping by .....
