A Teenage Birthday Card

Oh my what have I got us into, I only wanted wooden flooring laid in my spare bedroom and it has turned into a marathon.  My hubby decided while my nephew was laying the floor we could do with new wardrobe doors and as the facing had to come off we could do with new skirting boards as well.  So a small job has turned into to major reconstruction as redecoration is required too.  Hopefully it will soon be over, hubby is as we speak painting the woodwork so I will be able to get the room set up over the next few days.  As this room was the spare bedroom and my craft room there was loads to things the be moved around and the other two bedrooms are jam packed with things.  We have decided to turn this newly decorated room in our new bedroom, as it is looking so pretty and get the other bedroom laid with wooden flooring as well.  Oh to get things back to normal, at least when this is complete there is no more reconstruction to do, it has all been done.

This card is one I made for a fifteen year old girl, I was stumped until I had a look at the Paper Shelter site and found a gorgeous topper and as it was a quick card I used the pre-coloured image and will attempt to colour the digi image at a later date.

Sorry the photo is not very good as I am a bit limited with access to my computer just now with all that is taking place.
I used an 8x8 card
Blue card as a background and layered some blue spotty card
The image is downloaded from The Paper Shelter (there was only one girl but I flipped another image and made it a bit smaller to get two girls dancing.)

Well back to the grind, not much crafting taking place this weekend, more sanding down, sweeping up and painting.  I have a couple of commissions for later this week so will really have to get down to it soon.
Welcome to my new followers, its great to have you on board.
Take care.

  3. Hello Wilma, Your card is lovely and the picture looks great to me. Its awful when the house is turned upside down, but its the only way to get things done. Just think how pretty it will be when its finished. Hugs Rita xx


  4. Wilma. Another great card and lovely colours. Oh dear you have landed yourself with a lot of work, but it will be worth it in the end. I am trying to sort out and clear our spare room/craft storage room. I have for to find the bed by the end of the month when Patricia needs to sleep in there before we set off for Turkey. We have a 4ft bed and I am trying to get husband to let me get a single one. That extra foot can make a difference.


  5. Wonderful card Wilma, TPS images are just great and the option to use the coloured one is so useful.

    I think this is what happens when you stared decorating, it takes on a life of it's own. You'll love it all when it's completed, kate x

  16. Hi Wilma

    Great card here. Ideal for a teenager.

  17. Hi Wilma,
    super card for a teenager. You are a clever computer person flipping the image. I wouldn't know where to start on that.
    I only started using a computer a few years ago so I am still quite on a learning curve.
    Sounds like major works going on, still very worth it in the end.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  19. Construct muscle mass very first. It boosts the
    number of energy you burn up while resting. You'll have the ability to carry a lot more bodyweight and as a result do more perform, which indicates that if you workout employing hefty weights you are going to burn up far more calories and that excess fat will melt off. I understand this simply because I've accomplished this.
    I used to be stuck at 165-170 lbs (i'm 5'9),
    even after a more than a yr on stronglifts. I lastly attempted GOMAD for three weeks and acquired
    my bodyweight as much as 185 lbs. 3 weeks off GOMAD now, I'm steady at 182 pounds. I've taken before and
    right after pictures, so I realize that I only gained a small quantity of unwanted fat
    in the GOMAD bulking and lost it all now. But I gained about ten pounds of muscle throughout that point and received my
    stalled at 225 squat up over 250 lbs. Sturdy!
