Papertake Weekly Challenge ~ Teenage Kicks

This weeks challenge is to make a card for a teenager and this is what I've come up with...

CS ~ Papermill Shop, PP ~ DS George cd, image ~ kerryjo stamp, coloured with watercolour pencils and blinged with glamour dust, ribbon ~ stash and pearls ~ Crafts Central. This just has to be one of my favourite Kerryjo stamps, I just love it. I've used it a couple of times now and don't think I'm ever gonna tire of it. The paper I found by accident whilst looking through one of my many cds and as soon as I saw it I knew which stamp I'd be using!

Weight Watchers went well last week I lost 3lb, unfortunately this week I gained one of those back lol! What am I supposed to eat with only 19 points a day...I can't even fit chocolate into my day anymore and quite frankly what is a girl supposed to do without chocolate! Its no wonder by the time I sit down to watch Big Brother I've lost the will to live :(

Anyway, to brighten my day I've won Steph's blog candy, which looks absolutely fab and I can't wait to get it and I also got a Sizzix machine for free off of Freecycle. If your not a member of this website then you seriously need to join. It's free to join, all it costs is your time and a little petrol to go and collect other peoples unwanted items. All you have to do is register with your local area. It's also good for advertising your unwanted items instead of taking them off to your local tip. We've had some excellent things from Freecyle and also given away quite a lot too! My friend Paula got a Mahogany double sleigh bed from her local Freecycle website. I would've been so jealous had I not got one month's beforehand from our local YMCA shop for £50!!! Try it, it's great fun and helps the environment.

  7. Hi Jilli,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your comment. The swirls are lovely aren't they? A DoCrafts forum buddy sent me some and I asked her what they are. Apparently they are a Sizzix Bigz die, I haven't got my mits on it yet but I intend to!
    Your cards are lovely, this ballet one is just gorgeous!
    Take care, Tara xx
