Cards for Grandma & Grandad by Jake

These are the cards my 8 year old nephew has made for his grandparents who he is going to stay with for a few days. Both cards are sugar nellie images. He coloured them with my promarkers GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR not getting his hands on them often. Papers are from my stash and he picked and stuck them down with glue so he could move them around to get them in line. All work was done by jake only thing he didnt do was cut the papers not allowed to use my cutter for safety.

Think he did a good job with the colouring i just told him to do darker colours at the edges and lines on hair and to go over with the lighter colour.

He want to

enter this into a challenge so We are entering this into Papertake weekly - Anything goes as long as it is cute. Well he thinks they are and i know his grandparents will

Oh my goodness! He's 8 years old and can "do" shiney hair!! The boy has a serious talent! It has taken me years to do shiney hair and even now it doesn't shine like that! I also think you are so brave to let him at the promarkers. I am very protective over mine. Look but don't touch. I SAID DON'T TOUCH!!!
have a great wekend
