I’m breaking free (so to speak). I’ve really been inspired by others blogs and sites to be bold. I shall be shy and retiring no more (which for those that know me will cause some hilarity!). No I shall not be a wallflower crafter any longer. So I pushed myself and picked some strong colours and forced myself to go bold. I really enjoyed putting some detail into Heather’s birthday card for her 11th birthday this coming week. As this year goes on, and I fall headlong into 2 of my girls being nearly teenagers I feel like I’m in real uncharted territory!- Anyone got a map for raising teenagers?!When I get back from my day or two away I’m going to start putting tutorials and other stuff on my blog. In the meanwhile I’m pressing forward boldly go where this crafter has never gone before!! xx

Oh- and spot what the card is standing on- one of my collection of cake stands. I have quite a few; anything to do with cakes has to be good!

Card ingredients- cardstock, Kanban.  Backing card/paper : DCWV, stamp- Stampington. scalloped punch, cerise wire and beads, blue brads. Ribbon (not sure where its all from!). Yellow staples and Rubons (Doodlebug?)

See you soon!! xx

Can I sneak stamps in my suitcase? Everything tastes better nicely packaged!

    Yay! You go for it, Girl!! break out and really go to town. Love the colour combo on your daughter’s birthday card. As for advice on teens… well, I guess you will just have to learn the same way we all did!! LOL

    Hi Keren, a map for raising teenagers? Nope, sorry, ain’t got one … but did use a lot of prayer when my three were there – thankfully it’s not limited! I’d never have survived the experience without it. That was what kept me sane 😀 Check out Love your blog, btw 😀
