Happy Mother's Day!

Hello! Happy Mother's Day to those who are! Today I bring you a fun contest (thought of by me! WooHoo, because I never think of contest ideas!!) from Club Anya! In honor of Mother's Day, we are having a contest where your little one gets to be the boss! Here are the rules:

1.) Your child and/or children pick ALL the supplies for you to create a card...because they said so! Yes, we mean ALL other than adhesive, trimmers etc.

These supplies chosen by your kiddos MUST include:
CA&F qualifying stamp
Cardstock and Designer paper (and they can pick from ALL your piles of it! :D)
ANY and ALL embellishments (and you can't add anything extra, either :D)
ANY and ALL punches/tools not absolutely necessary for cardmaking (i.e. border punches, shapes, piercers, etc.)

Here is my card with all of the supplies picked out by my 10 year old, Ronnie:

She is obviously way more adventurous than me - I almost always use DP from the same company and usually from the same line so that it all coordinates. She just grabbed papers in blues and greens that she liked. (She just read that and thought I was insulting her - I was meaning I am very impressed with her using her own eye to put things together like she did!) Some of the pieces were small scraps and I worked with the scraps rather than getting a bigger piece out. She handed me two packets of jewels and I pulled the colors I wanted out of them - I assumed the rules would not mean that I had to use all of the jewels in the package!

The Details:
Stamp: Miss Anya Dressy - The Greeting Farm
Paper: Stampin Up (blue dot), DCWV (dark blue print), My Mind's Eye (green prints), Soft Sky (SU), White (Paper Trey Ink)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamagic Oceans Depth
Copics:
Skin: R00,E00,E11,R20
Hair: E40,E43,E44,E47
Misc: Darice Jewels, Taylors Tiny Twinkles, Prisma Flowers, Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Die

I can't wait to see what you and the Kiddo's come up with! And don't think if you are not a mom that you are left out - borrow a friend's kid or a niece or nephew!
