The School holiday Guest Card maker is:

A Card by Jessica, age 7!!!
Don't you love school holidays? Everytime you sit down to do something there's a little voice over your shoulder asking "Can I do some mum? Can I help? What can I do now?"
Jessica (like her mum) loves to make craft projects and she is at that age now where she can follow instructions and also add her own little elements.
We each did our own card - she is very good at the tearing paper, sticking, tying ribbons and spraying water - if a bit too much at times.
We were actually supposed to be making mothers day cards for the West Gosford Market this Sunday, but then she remembered her cousin had sent her an Easter card and we hadn't sent a thank you card.
I made one card for the market: Perhaps next time Jess can make one for me?

The technique on the flowers is direct to rubber with marker pens and just before you stamp you give the rubber a light spritz of water.  And when you stamp it looks a bit like water colouring.
What we used to make these cards:
Stampset: Upsy daisy.
Stampin Up Markers: Old olive, pumpkin pie, rose red, ballet blue.
Cardstock: Ballet blue, pumpkin pie and Apricot Appeal patterned paper.
2nd card: Melon Mambo, whisper white, pretty in pink.
Bigshot and Top note die and Timeless Type Alphabet die.
