Now to share a special email with you, just scroll down.
I don't often do this but I just had to share (with their permission of course) the email and pictures below that I received on Saturday. It was just so sweet and WOW was I impressed with Jennie's skills! I think you will be suitably impressed as well!!
Hi Sue, Hope you are well and enjoy this little story, with the attached photos.
> My granddaughter Jennie, who is nearly four, is very interested in 'making',
> as she calls it, and we have been stamping, gluing and making cards
> together since she was about two and a half. A couple of months ago I
> happened to be watching one of your videos whilst at her house (she lives in
> Leeds and we are in Liverpool) and she climbed up to watch it with me. Since
> then she has asked several times to 'watch Sue make a card on the iPad'.
> She watches your videos with great interest and asks lots of questions about
> what you're doing. She said she would like to make a card like one of
> yours so the next time we went over I prepped the pieces for the card in
> your 'bordered aperture' video and she helped me to construct it following
> the video as we went along.
> This week she has been to stay with us for a couple of days and I had
> promised her that we could make a card together using my grand calibur and
> following one of your videos. We chose the 'sparkle your embossing' video
> from YouTube and we started from scratch. Jennie helped to measure and then
> cut the card pieces for the card base, sticking them together with tape and
> mounting foam herself. She then carefully taped the dies to the card, made
> up the sandwiches, and insisted in winding my grand calibur all by herself.
> She then used the tool'n'one to remove the bits as she's seen you do. I
> think the bit she liked best was spreading the diamond sprinkles onto the
> sticky sheet and then embossing it. Finally, I helped her to assemble the
> card and we added some flowers from my stash that I had made some time ago.
> I think you'll agree that the finished card is really lovely and, according
> to Jennie, is for her little sister Becca's first birthday at the end of the
> Jennie sat with me for over two hours making the card, which is pretty
> amazing for one so young, I think. This morning she again asked to watch
> one of your videos. I went immediately to your blog and we were both
> delighted to find that 'our card' was today's video. We also scrolled down
> to look at the 'gilded high-low technique' and I have promised that when we
> go to Leeds in a couple of weeks time I'll take the necessary equipment for
> her to be able to make it. (I think I'll have to buy another grand calibur
> to leave in her house!!)
> Anyway, you have made a small child and her grandma very happy. As ever,
> thank you for sharing your wonderful skills and making card-making so
> With our hugs and very best wishes,
> Diane and Jennie xxxx
