Been a Bad Blogger !!

Hi Folks,

I'm sorry I haven't been on here lately, I've had a really hectic couple of weeks, and I couldn't show you the card I made for this weeks Tuesday Taggers challenge until after my daughter's birthday.

The challenge was to do something outside of my comfort zone, and I very rarely do cute, flowery and make cards !!! the main exception to my card making phobia being close family birthday's and other similar is my card.
It was Emily's 15th birthday and like every other teenage girl, she is such a mixture of contradictions at the moment, she is not in herself a "cute" type, but she has a grey pony called Larry who she adores and has just aquired a little Jack Russell puppy (8 weeks old, and very cute) called Yuki after one of the characters on these images just had to be used, I stamped them with versafine and then water coloured them using distress inks, the flowers and brads were from my stash and the fence constructed using stirers from a famous swedish the just for you sentiment is by stampin'up. Emily was really pleased with her card, especially as I had painted the puppy and pony to resemble her own pets.
Oh.... and by the way, can you guess what an animal mad 15 year old girl requested for her birthday present?...............
Yep... you got it..... An electric base guitar and now I need ear plugs.
Bye for now Bee xx


  1. Fabulous card Bee - and the guitar - well welcome to my world LOL James has 5 now!

  2. Fabulous card! I can relate to the guitar. Meg is 13 and has been playing guitar since she was seven. She was about 10 when we got the electric. I still think it's so much easier on the ear than a recorder!!!

  3. Awwww how cute is this, you might not do cute often but when you do - you do it well, if you need some ear plugs - theres plenty at our house lol XXX

  4. This has turned out lovely I forgot you was making it, love the colours I hve loads of ear plugs we too have taken the same route but both my twin daughters had guitars & no earplugs hahaha, Love Mad
