Teacher's Day Part 2 ( Craft Card)

I decided to let Kimi complete his Teacher's Day card for his PG (Playgroup) teachers after he wakes in the morning as we had a busy day yesterday.

So far, he is doing well. But think I may need to get those glue that are liquid kind instead of the present stick kind. Feel the liquid kind is easier for his stubby little fingers, keke!

I still remember when I was small, I used to have those that were in a pot and I needed to 'paint' them. Haven't see those around in a while.

After Kimi's nap, we did another Teacher's Day card for his favourite teacher at SM. I assembled most of the embellishments and Kimi helped me to stick it on. I got the idea for the card from here: http://www.craftcards.info/handmade/displayimage-1-14.html

I just liked the freshness of the card. I hand cut all the flowers and leaves and used nail stickers for the tiny daisies. Looks complicated but actually it is very easy, just layer, layer, layer.

And, Kimi said 'flower', repeating after me when I was telling him about the card. He did say 'flower' a few months back but refused to say anymore. I wonder why he can be such a 'one-time-word-wonder'. Anyone have the same experience with your kids before?
