Thank you Mrs Patterson

Kirsten is our host at Allsorts this week and would like us to make some thing suitable for a teenager.

Always a difficult age group to create for I think, so checked with Anysia who's pushing nineteen and her answer was "well, OK for a youngish teenager", so I figure that's about as much confirmation as I am likely to get. I guess the sentiment says's it all.....how right Harry Enfield always was when he depicted that age group.............."thank you Mrs Patterson".........tell me I'm not that old and the only one who remembers that character ?

So on to my card, the image is one of the more recent Crafts and Me Hannah Lynn stamps called Frosted Rose which I coloured with Copics. The sentiment is from a Hero Arts sets called Whatever and the DP is Nitwits with borders punched with Martha Stewart Embossed Scallop. This card is also for the following:

ABC challenge - P is for pink
Alphabet Challenge - R is for ribbons
Pixie Dust - Seeing polka dots

Next for our new challenge at Stamptacular Sunday - "You lucky Duck" - not nothing to do with duck's actually, we would like to see good luck, congratulations or best wishes on projects.

My card was made as a good luck card for a colleague leaving work to have a baby. The lovely flower image is Penny Black 4042K Daisy Fields, inked with TH fired brick and spritzed with water before stamping onto a background stamped with Hobby Art GR1341F Shakespeare Sonnet.....I also stamped the leading edge of the base card with this. The punched border is made from Kaiser DP which I also used to make the green roses, the larger flower is Magnolia.


This will be my last post for Stamptacular Sunday as I have decided to reduce my DT's until I feel fully able to cope with typing and blogland again. I have enjoyed working with Priscilla and the team, they have such wonderful themes so perhaps I can join in their challenges now and then.

And last but by no means least, a couple of 'Scrap' card for my mate Jules who is on a mission to get us to use up our odds and sods. And my two here are just that, offcuts of DP, cardstock and ribbon and the stamps was a freebie, so I recon these fit the bill perfectly. The above card is for:

Fab 'n Funky - Spring into action

Finally, don't forget that we have Spring themes running at both Stampalot and Penny Black at Allsorts challenges and some awesome prizes on offer.

  20. Wonderful cards Brenda. Love the way you have used your scraps...they are beautiful creations. Also great how you have the butterflies flying off the image. And teenagers are so so hard to cater for. I think you did well. I am sure it would fit my daughters age group. 15.

  21. Wow Brenda, you've been busy - love all your cards posted and what a good idea to use up the scraps...(I keep mine but never use them). LOVE your teenager card, great image and love "whatever"...and I remember only too well Kevin and "thabkyou Mrs Patterson"...in fact I have a bit of a Kevin in my own home (sometimes)! I remember when Kevin turned into a "nice young man", so hopefully he will amaze us too one day. Glad you're getting better Brenda. Hugs, Teresa x

  38. Hi Brenda, you do make some lovely cards - particularly your red one ! I seem to have lost you email address?! i thought you might like to read a blog that was very well written about Adrian Waterworth recent banking experience. He's the other half to Glenda of Graphicus (now in liquidations). It really is a gem of a post. So if you get a moment pop over and have a read.
