SSS: Alex's card for the Kids Challenge

Today I am sharing Alex's birthday card he made for his cousin.   
He loves to use the "embosser" (oddly did not want to use it for this card) and punch circles.
We are entering it into the Simon Says Stamp: Children's Challenge.

Alex (age 5 1/2) picked the snake image off the Create a Critter cartridge.
I simply cut out the image in white and let him color it. 
He loved adding the Stickles to the red tongue!
He stamped the sentiment and placed it so that it didn't cover up the snake.



I offered google eyes, but he declined.  He liked the orange eyes that he drew:


He stamped the balloon image on the inside and colored it.



Here he is working on his card with cars nearby, of course:



Thanks for looking.  I'll share his little brother's entry next time...
You GOTTA see that one!  hee hee

WOW Alex that's a mean looking snake with his red sparkly tongue!!! I like your colours and how you coloured his body with stripes. The balloon inside is great too.

I am so happy that you could join us at the Simon Says Stamp challenge
