i will show you my project in a moment but first.......drum roll please......... i have a special guest designer. if youre familiar with me then youve seen him guest for me before . if not well youre in for some extra specialness :)
its my sweet lil daycare boy "bug" who is 4 years old.  hes an awesome colorer and loves to create with me in my craftroom. he was super excited when i told him about the hop and he was so eager to join in the fun.
so he picked not 1 not 2 but 3 digis  to showcase for you today :) he made  cute cards for his mommy,  daddy and sister.

heres his awesome projects. mind you this will be picture heavy as i thought id show you the process a little ;)
card 1 is for his daddy.
cutting paper to fit mat
adhering paper
inking. YES!!!!!.i LOVE this boy!  
adding action wobble
adding inside sentiment, hes a lefty like me :)
finished inside
and the finished card :) is that coloring just amazing or what! ;)omg..look at that inking job on his sun!! im so proud of him!
heres his card for mommy
yep he scores his own cards. martha stewart would be proud yes but.....just wait!
yep the boy can punch! at first he told me there were only 2 kinds of punches, the kind you do with your fist to someone and the kind you drink..i showed him another ;) 
a little placement action

heres the inside 
and the final card the beautiful hippo is on an action wobbly. by the way he picked the papers and colored according to that choice. we hang out A LOT in my craft room :) he pays attention even when hes playing with his cars, what a good boy! ;)
and now for his last creation. he couldnt leave out is sister.
drawing seaweed
placing the bubbles (cloud9 raindots)
and the grand finale :) again used a wobbly :)
bug says thank you so much for checking out his cool and beautiful cards. his favorite is the one he made for his dad.

so now.........

here's what i created using the bear and bunny digi.

now how dang cute is this! i paper pieced these sweeties which is my preference to actual coloring.
i added the hearts and sentiment using my cricut and computer generated the text.
now for the really exciting part....
