Chloe's Handmade Valentine's

This is my 5 yr old, Chloe, and her 3 yr old sister, Tara. Not sure what's up with Chloe's goofy grin! These are the Valentine's we sat and made tonight for her Preschool class party tomorrow. We used two images from Pun Fun, and some DCVW cardstock (I think that's what it's called, I only use SU, and let the kids use the other stuff). We stamped the images, and she colored them with SU Color Pencils. I scored and punched holes in these to hold the suckers she picked to give to her friends. Her sister separated the colored ones into piles for me to finish cutting out. We had a lot of fun making these, and I think they are cuter than anything storebought...plus it was a great experience. Below are some more pics!
The boys are getting blue with the Rocket stamp, and the girls are getting pink with the Skunk stamp (that my daughter insists is a squirrel, hence they are brown). The Skunk says 'I stink you're sweet', and the Rocket says 'You're a Blast'. I thought these were perfect for Preschool Valentine's.

The close up. I will be reading her the comments, so if you like what she did, drop a comment for me to share with her. I think she did a good job, and she's only 5!
