From the Heart August Challenge

Just as I was finishing up my card for the August From the Heart Challenge, I heard a knock at the door.  My granddaughter, Gaby, and 17 month old great-granddaughter, Laila, stopped by for a visit.  What fun to bring out the puzzles with the little knobs on the pieces, the bus with the little people inside, and the Elmo sectional plate and baby utensils.  And after I post this card, I'll be getting out the mop and bucket to unsticky my kitchen floor.  Who invented those juice boxes that no child can resist squeezing?  Bad idea!

The free digital set for this month's challenge is Candy Cane for Snowman.  I also used glitter, some flocking, black liquid pearls, baker's twine, satin ribbon and my recently discovered Promarkers to make this cute Christmas card.
Additional challenges I am entering...
Di's Digi Designs Challenge - use ribbon, twine and/or lace 
Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge - Anything Goes 4 Kids 
Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Spots or Stripes 
Inkspirational Challenge #89 - Word Prompt:Melt

While Laila was enjoying her juice box, we did get her to stand still and say "cheese".  She is getting so big!
