Super Duper Teenage Daughter

Hello friends, here is the second of my teenager birthday cards. This one was for Darren to give to Charlotte. I can show them with no problems now because her birthday was on Saturday.

My Card

Click on image to enlarge pictures

I used a fancy stepper card from Craftwork Cards for this card.  The papers are digi papers which I have had for a few years but unfortunately I don't know where they are from.  They are matted onto blue pearlescent card stock.  The image is a ready coloured one from Pink Gem Designs -"Emma in Flowered Jeans", matted onto SB Labels 8 which was die cut onto the blue pearlescent card stock.  The flourish and butterflies are SB Jewel Flowers and Flourishes.  The leaves are Cheery Lynne Wreath Strip. The flowers are WOC cosmos daisies which I coloured with Promarkers to match.  The blue ribbon was from my stash and I covered the knot with Card Candy.  I computer generated the sentiment ans matted it on to SB Lacy Circles.

I think it looks quite clean and fresh looking.  Of the three I  made this is John's favourite and I think it is probably my favourite too.

I seem to be having a few problems with my blog.  My Followers pictures have disappeared.  When I went into layout it looks as if it should be there, it shows the favicon for Followers, but they certainly aren't showing on the actual blog.  Blogger can be such a pain at times, and we can waste so much time on it! Hopefully they will reappear at some stage! I'll have to get John to take a look for me - he's pretty good with computers.

Have a good day. Love and hugs from Christine xx

Hi Christine, love the colours and topper, just right for a teenage girl. Bet Charlotte loved it. I had the same problem a while ago, wracked my brains but it just sorted itself out, Mr Blogger is a pain at times, note I said MR Blogger must be male because of all the hitches we have with the blog.

This is gorgeous Christine. I love the image and such a fabulous shape with pretty shades of blue.
My followers disappear sometimes too, the first time it happened I thought they had gone for good, luckily they did return though!
I hope you have a good day

I love this stepper card Christine - especially with the wavy edge. I was hoping there was a tutorial but I am going to have a go at drawing one onto paper. This is how I make all my boxes so I can but try!!! This is also such a gorgeous blue and the image really is cute. I am sure she liked this one as well. John certainly has a good eye for choosing nice cards!!!

Lots of hugs to you
