Valentine’s Cards with Robot Stickers

February 14, 2016

When I updated my blog in February 2016, I lost all the posting I had already done. I am doing my best to put the posts back up but I do not remember all the details for each card.  Unfortunately, the details for this project may be a bit scarce.

My kiddos got some Valentine themed robot stickers from their grandmother. Because they are my children, they wanted to make cards with the stickers. They gave these cards to their father for Valentine’s Day.

My son had a lot to say while designing this card. I also was playing with water color at this point.
