Bad Blogger!

I'm really sorry I have not been posting or visiting my favourite blogs very much recently. There are a few reasons for this.

  1. May, June and July are my busiest months for needing to make cards.

  2. We're in the middle of having an office/music room built in the garden so that Peej can work and play out there without being disturbed or disturbing anyone and it's a little disruptive.

  3. Max! Having a puppy in the house is the greatest distraction there is. Not only is he so cute that I just have to keep stroking him but there is also the toileting breaks he needs, the exercising, socialising, training etc. But I tell you he is such a clever dog and is already toilet trained. He knows sit, down, wait, okay, roll over, paw, stand and Kibble (which means meal time!) and he's still only 16 weeks old. When we go out for walks he sits at nearly every curb. I still have to position him sometimes if there's a lot going on but he's doing so well, I'm so proud of my puppy!

Anyway I digress. So here is my meagre offering for today.

This is a card I made as part of an entry into a draw in the Simply Cards and Papercrafts Magazine. The brief was to design a brightly coloured card suitable for a teenager, so if it manages to make it to the feature page you will be able to say you saw it here first!! Lol!

The papers are freebies from the SC&P Magazine, I used a scallop punch and then my Cricut to make the inner circle to put the 13 on. The little girl stamp is a Penny Black coloured with Twinkling H2O's. I used my ticket corner punch from Stamping Up to invert the corners before mounting it onto Bazzil Bling card stock and adding brads to finish.

Perfect card for a teenager, love the combination of colours, hot pink and lime green work so well together.

Max is adorable and I can see why he keeps distracting you. Good Luck with the construction.
