Teen birthdays

Hi Guys,

Thought I'd pop up a quick post. Have been busy again but have finished teaching the six-week Parenting Education course (3 hrs on Monday nights) and am just stating back for my 3rd Uni trimester. All fun and games.

My friend Jenn's two teen daughters had birthdays in June and August respectively. I wanted something more 'teeny' than 'tweeny' so turned to my MFT stash.  They make some great teen girl stamps.

For Charlotte I CASED this card from Splitcoast. I changed the stamp set and used SU papers (retired SAB 20112). I coloured the image with a mix of Copic & SU markers. I cut out the numbers with PTI dies and covered them with SU's 'Dazzling Details'.

Here she is:

Now for Lucy's card. I used the MFT 'Unrepeatable' a-la-mode stamp, again colouring with Copics and SU markers. I used a MFT sketch leaving out the horizontal element as it seemed too busy (and covered her cute shoes LOL). The paper is SU and the banner was cut using a PTI die. The little numbers are from an MFT banner/alphabet/numbers set.

The girls' Mum assures me that they liked them. Charlotte sent a lovely email to say thanks.

I better go ink some paper as work have asked me to make some cards for their stash. They try to give all the staff birthday, baby and sympathy cards when required. It does help morale.

Have a great weekend,

Fi x

Hi Fi! These are both adorable! So far I have resisted this set of stamps ... But I did drool over them! Definitely perfect for the teen card! Hugs xxx

Hello my love, Charlotte & Lucy did indeed absolutely LOVE their cards (as they do every year!!) and we've showed them off to all the Aunties who have raved about them also!!! They get just as excited about the cards you send them as what they do about the pressies ... clever Auntie Fi!! xx
