How Old Are You?

'Tis Friday - yippeeeee!! How I love Fridays!! We have a "Christmas" party to attend to this weekend. Should be interesting as well, Christmas is over LOL. Not sure if I should were my Christmas tree sweater or not ;)

Today I made another masculine card. This time it is for a teen dude. Now THAT is difficult, if you ask me!! Derek tells me that male teenagers don't care about cards so don't really worry about it. Needless to say, it took about 2 1/2 hours to come up with card.

Today's Challenges: 1. Simon Says Challenge this week is "shabby chic". I usually make a LOT of clean lines on cards so this was a challenge for me as well, but I think it came together okay-like :) Now I do admit, I cheated just a bit as there isn't a lot of stamping on my card but I just did not have a good teen dude stamp/image.

2. EtsyInspired Challenge (yikes, I wasn't paying attention, I think I am too late!) this week is to find some inspiration from Skylar's Candy Clips. I chose these two creations to inspire my card:

The colors
and the shape and details:


And here is what I came up with:






Card Ingredients: Recollections Garage Sale paper; Bazzill and Recollections cardstock; Making Memories brads and staples; Inkadinkado stamp; Craftsmart Black ink; and my trusty, hardly works sewing machine :)

Happy Friday to you all!! Stay happy this weekend!! xo

This is a great teen card. Your choice of patterned paper and stitching do meet the shabby chic requirement but you were still able to get in your right angles and straight lines. I understand that. I'm a left brain crafter myself.
