Trick or Treat with Mommy

DS is three and LOVES to papercraft with Mommy. He saw my Stamping Bella card shown here today and desperately wanted to make his own. Mommy scored the base to fold it and helped him put on the DP he chose but other than that, I was blown away by his independence. He needed help with the sandwich on the Big Shot but he was able to find all the pieces himself and really was only confused by how the Nestie and paper fit. (He wanted to put the paper down first so he could see the Nestie at all times.) He turned the handle all by himself. He picked the stamps and stamped them himself. I then showed him how to sponge ink and he was off to the races. He loved sponging! DS even placed all the shapes himself. I did have to cut the adhesive into strips so he didn't use all of it on one card. Boys do love their tape!

I can't believe how independent he's getting. (sniff, sniff)

I am submitting this card on his behalf for the following challenges:
Little Hands Can Do - Anything Goes
Delightful Challenges - Pumpkins, Pumpkins Everywhere
Creative Card Crew - Autumn or Fall
Paper Sundaes - Fall or Halloween Colours
