The grandkids are trying to outdo me, and joining a challenge.

Hello there dear friends,
First I want to thank all of you for all the wonderful and sweet xcomment here about my work the last days. It really means a lot to me, that you like, what I´m creating, and I always love to hear, what you think of it.
Today I don´t have one of my cards to share with you, but my grandkids has been very busy here the last couple of days.
As some maybe knows, Mo´s Digital Pencil have a challenge for kids of all ages this week, and I knew right away, that the girls would be thrilled, as especially Tascha has been complaaining more times, why it was always only the adults, who could join to win something, so ofcause I had to tell her, that now was the chance. So not only her and her læittle sister Trione ofcause wanted to join, but also my sons girlfriends kids wanted to try their luck, so all 4 kids came here yesterday and went very busy right away creating cards with Mo´s images. Unfortunately Simone and Anders couldn´t be here today, so they had to rush a bit yesterday to finish theirs, and I admit, I totally forgot to take any pics yesterday, so I don´t have any of them being busy bee´s, but Tascha and Trine stayed here today too, so they had time to put some more effort into theirs, and I admit, I´m really proud of, what the kids achieved, that´s for sure. Especially as they´re not that old yet, but they really love to play here in my craftroom, which I´m sure, you can all see from these picstures:
 Here´s Tascha very busy making all the last details on her card and checking she had enough bling on it LOL.
 And here´s Trine already writing in her card, which ofcause had to go home for mum and dad.
 And here´s both of them soo busy, that they didn´t even notice, I took the picture ha ha.
 And here´s Tascha´s card. She´s just 9, so I´m really impressed, how much she thought of the smallest details here. I think, she´s been looking quite a bit over my shoulders, when I´ve been working here ha ha.
 And this is Trines card, she´s only 6, and even she haven´t quite got as much sense of the tiniest details yet, I really think, she did an awesome job on this one, but it also took her several hours to make ha ha ha.
 This is Simones card, she´s also only 9, and did an awesome jobb, thinking of, she only had a few hours to make hers, so she did an awesome job here too, I think.
And here we finally have Anders´s card, he´s only 7. I admit, I was a little surprised, when he announced, he ewanted to make one too, as he´s a boy and have never shown any interst for these things before, but ofcause he should join too, when he wanted to, and thinking about, this is his first card ever, he certainly did an amazing job too, and I´m really proud of all of them, that´s for sure.
They all enter their cards in Mo´s challenge here:
And ofcause all them hope, they´ll be the lucky winners of the awesome childrens book, that Mo has put up for the first winner, but now we´ll have to see. I ofcause had to tell them, that only one can win the main prize, and we can´t know, who they´ll pick.
Thanks soo much for watching here, and I know the kids is very exited to hear, what you all think of their work, so we´ll all apreciate very much, if you´ll take the time to leave them a comment here.
I wount be here the next couple of days, as it´s tomorrow, I have my appointment with the eyesurgeon at the hospital, and they´ll put something in my eyes, so I wouldn´t be able to see anything the next 24 hours, they said, but never mind that, if they´ll just decide to fix that stupid cataract now, so my vision can get back to normal again.
Have a wonderful day everyone and lots of fun, til next time.

I always LOVE to see the grandchildren in the craft room!! Goodness, what beautiful works they have all created and what a nice surprise to have your grandson join right in with the girls.

I hope all goes well with your cataract surgery and don't rush right back into crafting....give they eyes the time they need to recover fully. :)

So cute, Maryann!! Looks like you really enjoyed watching your grandkids create, and hanging around with them was a blast!! Yes, the boys are very interested in crafting. I never thought my boy would be interested in it, but he just loves coloring and the ending results is always a positive to see completed. Big Hugs, Jen

Ardilla said...

WOW! They all made great projects... Maryann I understand why are you proud of them!!!
Vicky was still finishing school and didn´t have the motivation to do it, although I invited her... I participated in the same challenge and was fun.
