Easter Egg Flower?

I love it when my daughter meanders into my stamping room. She sees things that I usually don't and the card below was her observation when she first saw the Easter Egg stamp in the Easter Blossoms stamp set. What she saw in the Easter Egg was a flower petal and she asked me if she could try to stamp one. "Sure!", I said 
:-). Her stamped little flower ended up on this card....
And then she made a couple of cards herself :-). I've been encouraging her here and there to make some cards or to scrap some pages, but she is a busy skater so she hasn't really shown any interest in doing so....until now :-). In the first card below, she used one of the flowers from Greenhouse Garden to make fireworks...

In her next card, she again used the egg from Easter Blossoms to create another flower, a tulip...

It was really nice to see her get back to my stamping room and do some stamping. It will probably be a while before she goes back there again though, so I have to enjoy and encourage those little moments when they come :-D.

My Happy Birthday card has been submitted as a challenge card on SUO Challenges this week. If you like to do challenges, then head on over :-). 

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Great cards gals. I see where Danielle gets her talent from. The 4th of July card is really cool.
