Hi! I'm little Miss C.
I am only 6 years old, so this is actually my Grandma's blog and she types my posts for me as I can't spell or type yet. I love art and horses. And ballet! Mostly horses though!!!

And We're Dashing Again!

I made one more card of that pretty horse drawn sleigh image. This one is for my Great Grandma. She is 87 years old so maybe she rode in a horse drawn sleigh once upon a time. And she lived happily ever after 'cuz she had a horse farm and raised horses. Lots of horses!

I know she will like this card because a horse card would be her second choice after a Baby Jesus card. I hope I get a Baby Jesus stamp in my stocking for Christmas...I asked Santa for card making supplies.

Two boys in my class don't believe in Santa. I told my little brother and we decided that he is real. He always brings us presents so he must be real. I do think maybe is he doesn't have real bones so that he can fit down the chimneys. When he fits down there, I hope he has some new stamps for me and some new copic pens.  Sometimes I don't have enough colours and then I have to wait to finish my image till Grandma comes over with hers.

Here is my card. I did not have to colour this one at all, just chalk the edges. I used something new in this card. My Grandma calls it a border strip. It looks like wax paper but feels like glass. It is the shimmery strip of handwriting under my red ribbon. Do you know how to read handwriting yet? I am not sure what it says because I am still learning to sound out words that are printed. I can read now if the words aren't too hard...if they are I try to sound them out. Some words are really hard though.

I think when you are really old you get to learn handwriting cuz my Mum knows how.

Here is the card for my Great Grandma. I put lots of bling on it so she could see it.l.
My Grandma helped me stamp the inside. The images don't matter if they are crooked cuz you just make sure the die cut is on straight and then it is OK. But the inside of the card is scary...it is so hard to get it straight. She put it where it should go and I pressed it down.

I am putting my card in the following challenges:
1. Pixies Crafty Workshop - Everything on this card is from the snippet bins except the stamp! Even the card base is really old.
2.Simon Says Stamp - Anything Christmassy
3.One Stop Craft Challenge  - A Christmas Carol, Mine is Jingle Bells
4. Penny Black and More at Allsorts  - It's Your Choice, I have my fingers crossed for this one cuz I love the Penny Black stamps, I only have 2 and I love them! I hope I win some of their stamps! They even have some horse stamps too!
5. Marks Finest Papers Friends of Speedy TV - Happy Holidays


  1. Beautiful Christmas card, I love the colours & that cute stamp.. & well done to Grandma..Great job.. Merry Christmas.. Hugs May x x x

  2. I like your pretty chalk on the edges of your oval. The bling is great!!! Be sure to let us know if you get those copics and baby Jesus stamp in your stocking!!!! Merry Christmas! Thanks for joining FOSTV this week!

  3. Wow. little Miss C......your card is just beautiful, bet your Great Grandma will love it! I bet it won't be long before you're reading handwriting......then when you get to be as old as me - don't tell anyone but I'm 47 - you'll love to read everything! Miss Rebecca and me love to snuggle on the sofa and read our books. Good luck with the competitions too! Hope Santa leaves lots of lovely gifts for you & your Brother! Merry Christmas!
    Hugs Jo x

  4. Another lovely card Miss C. Hope Santa brings you some stamping goodies.

  5. Your card is so beautiful.
    I think your great grandma will love this card.
    Just a tip, if your inside sentiment is a bit crooked you can restamp it on some other paper and glue it to the inside.

    1. I know...that is why so many of our cards have die cut sentiments inside!

  6. Love your card Miss C and I am pretty sure your Great Grandma will too. Isn't it wonderful to have a Grandma close to you that you can craft with. I would have loved that as a little girl! Hope you get your stamp and some copics in your stocking! Merry Christmas
    Glenda - I follow your Grandma's wonderful blog!

  14. Miss C: I think your cards are so very pretty and you did a marvelous job at cardmaking. I think you must be a very smart young lady to know all these words, and I also think you are a kind young lady to think about making such a perfect card for your great grandmother. That is very thoughtful and your card is wonderful too. I hope Santa brought you lots of supplies and I'll look forward to seeing all the pretty things you will make. It was very sweet of you to post your brother's card. Please tell him how much I enjoyed seeing it. You are both very talented. Have a wonderful year in 2013, and give your Grandma Maureen a big Hug from me. And one to you as well. Thanks for sharing your pretty cards with all the bloggers and many hugs.
