Introducing.... Olive!

Hi everyone! I'm doing something a little different today.... I'm posting pics of a card made by my 6-year-old Goddaughter, Olive. She's too young to have her own blog, so I'll be posting on her behalf every now & then.

It's time for the annual kid's challenge at Simon Says Stamp & she really wanted to enter a card. I know I know.... I think I've created a monster! She made it very clear to me that she wanted to do this completely on her own because the rules say try not to use any adult assistance. I'm proud to say that she made this card 100% on her own. Yes, she knows how to use my Cuttlebug machine for die-cutting & embossing.

She also wants me to mention that she is already reading chapter books that are a 4th to 5th grade level, lol.
