Birthday cards for kids, by kids

My nieces were over the other day and they both love to play with my stamping stuff and they asked if they could make cards for another niece's birthday. I never pass up a chance to play with them and teach them new things, I mean why not get the next generation hooked early right? The first card was done by Alex and the second card was done by Sam. I did help them a bit but not much. They looked through my samples and found cards they wanted to re-create. Alex used different paper, but kept the design quite similar and Sam kept the card design, but used different stamps and colors too.

Stamps: Bugs & Kisses, Pun Fun
Ink: Real Red, Only Orange, Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore, Brilliant Blue
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, Green Galore, Brilliant Blue, Gable Green and some patterned paper from my stash not sure what or who
Misc: Pumpkin Pie Striped Ribbon, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Star Punch, Stampin Dimensionals

It's it fun to let kids create and see what they come up with?

Until next time, Happy Scrappin'
