Officially A Teenager

Good morning dear friends and fellow bloggers.  It's nice to be back.  I have really enjoyed having my nephew and his children here, but it's always nice to have your house - and your time! - back again.  It's incredible how quiet it is.  I feel I need to go jumping up and down the stairs or something. Lol!

My Card

Click on image to enlarge picture.

I'm sorry that my picture is so poor.  This is the second one I have taken, which is a bit better.  This is the first of three cards that I have made for Charlotte who, as you can see, becomes a teenager today. She has been very excited about this particular birthday and really couldn't wait for it.  I will show the other two over the next couple of days.

The image is a pre-coloured WhoopsiDaisy digi which was printed onto white cardstock and then I brushed over some chalks to take away the stark whiteness and  die cut it with SB Labels 10.  I  used left over pieces of card stock from my bit box. The pink card and the spotted card are from First Edition "Love Letters" pad. The turquoise pearlescent card and the burgundy card have been hanging around for a while so I don't know where they are from. The butterflies are Fly Stickers from Hobbycraft and the blue gemstones are also from Hobbycraft. I computer generated the sentiment using Candy Buzz btn font.

Well that's all for today.  I washed all the bedding yesterday evening after they left so now I need to get it all ironed - not my favourite job I have to say.

Have a good start to the weekend everybody.

Love and hugs from Christine xx

  14. Wow I love the image on your card. A right sassy looking miss! A fab card which no doubt Charlotte will love.

  15. Christine I know what you mean about the quiet it's bliss really. We have the two grandsons here for a sleepover and even the dog is glad they have gone to bed just because of the noise level. I do think children should come with volume controls. Then again it's maybe I am just getting old.

    Love your teenager card it's great.
