Teenage Girl Card

What is all this weather about, we have had a great couple of weeks making it ideal for walking. Then we get hit with snow again, freezing cold and wind chill, brrrrrrrrr.  How I long for Spring to arrive and stay for a while.  I am a hothouse plant I need the sun, I hate winter.

Enough about the weather.  I have not really done much since last week but have been asked to make a card for a teenage girl.  Not knowing the person the card is meant for I have made two, well you know me, one is never enough.  I made one for a sedate, lady like girl and one for someone who likes fun.  They are for an Italian lady in our village who is my best customer to give to the teenager and I really like to make cards I think she would like.  The only problem is once I give her a choice she ends ups buying them all which is not what I intended.  Here is my first card I will post the other one later.

The base is a 8 X 8 card, the papers are from my stash, I seem to have collected quite a collection and I have not kept many wrappers.  The image (her name is Amelia) was one my friend passed to me so I have no idea who it is by.  I used Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles, varying sizes for the topper and backing and for floral corsage.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the sentiment is from Kanban.  The butterfly is from my stash as is the corners.  The topper was already coloured so I cannot take the praise for that.  This is the sedate one.
On 23rd March I, along with Patricia and her sister Hazel are having a day out to Inverness to meet up with Kate  We are travelling by Megabus and it is only costing us 50p as we all have the oldies bus pass, a real bargain.  It will be a real pleasure to meet up with Kate and put a face to her blog.  I have previously met up with Patricia and Hazel, two very wonderful people who make jewellery to sell in aid of a couple of charities they support.  I bet we will have a great time chatting and catching up, I am really looking forward to that.
I spent last Saturday at the SECC in Glasgow and bought all the items from my list and a few extras.  Now I am not usually tidy but after arriving home I put everything away and forgot to take a picture of my purchases.  It was really just the run of the mill stuff, glue pens, beads (I am in to making stick pins for my cards), some crochet flowers, A3 card, cosmic shimmer glue (can't live without that) LOTV stamp (the cupcake stand one), I forget what else.  Alisha, who was with me, bought a few beads to make herself a bracelet.  I bought her a Nail Art kit and she was so delighted with that.  As a treat for her Mum on Mother's Day, she painted her nails and what a great job she did.
Well ladies that's it for now before I bore you silly. 
Take care and wrap up warm.

  1. Fabulous teenage card Wilma. I hope you all have a great time when you all meet up and I bet you chatter away ten to the dozen. Wish I was nearer to all of you as its sounds like a fun day out. Hugs Rita xxx

  2. Gorgeous card Wilma - any teenager would be delighted with it. Hope you enjoy your trip. Isn't the bus pass great?

  3. Great card fire teenager Wilma...great image and lovely colours ...enjoy your meet up and have a great time.
    Think you for your lovely comments on my blog I read it and then promptly deleted it instead of publishing it....daft or what!?


  4. Fabulous card Wilma and I hope you have a great time meeting up with everyone...I'm meeting up in August with a blogging friend who is coming over from Canada so I cant wait ..huggles hun Sue J xxxx

  5. I really love your card Wilma. I don't have anything suitable for a teenager but I really must look for something because I have a few girls to make for soon. Unfortunately we have no bus service here so there's not much point in having a pass. My sister says I should still get one for when I visit her - but since I always have the car again it's a bit pointless. Christien x

  6. Fab card, I like everything about it. You are going to think me so silly, when I first looked at it I thought the girl was wearing a mini skirt and thought to myself "well if this is the sedate one!" - good job I got a letter from the optician today saying I had to see him. xx Flora

    1. I see what you mean Flora it is a bit like that. LOL

  7. Very pretty and of course loving those rectangles. Lovely butterfly too :) x

  9. Wilma what a great card for a teenager just had another look and see what Flora means, but they all wear that look. ( of course we never did, did we !!M) mini skirts keep coming round in the fashion world ever few years as the latest look.
    I too am looking forward to the 23rd and for 50p you can't go far in the car for that can you.
