Making a card for a teen is the new month's challenge at the St Lukes Charity Challenge where cards are sold to raise money for the charity. Why not join in? You could win a prize and would be contributing to a very worthwhile cause. Here's what I came up with:
A text image works well for teens - this one is from from the hostess set Happiest Birthday Wishes. I paper pieced the 'i' with a scrap of Patterns designer paper and a tiny punched heart and popped up the word 'happy' with dimensionals.
You can see how dimensional it is in this photo. I've added more interest by attaching the panel to a textured card base and by scoring a frame with my lovely Simply Scored board. Red Yellow and Blue aren't necessarily colours I would choose but they're the challenge at Make My Monday this week, so I picked up the gauntlet - and I quite like the way it turned out actually!

Yesterday, we spent most of the day at the dentist and my son was given some temporary caps for his teeth. All is well for the time being but we have to be vigilant in case the nerve dies and causes infection. I'd fed him a large brunch before we left but the moment the dentist told him he wouldn't be able to eat for a few hours, he turned into a ravenous beastie! Today, he's gone to senior school for his induction day and I can't wait to hear his entertaining views on that, but meanwhile the house has gone to wrack and ruin and there's a pile of laundry waiting to be done...
See you tomorrow,
