Teen Spirit

I got this fantastic award fromLilibet and Jozza and Judy :) Thank you so much!

I am supposed to pass it on to 10 others, but there are so many blogs out there that inspire so if you have not received this award yet, consider yourself awarded! :)

Josh turned yesterday, he spent most of the day glued to his new beloved Nintendo DS but was particulary excited to have the day off - school has been closed most of the week due to roof being blown off in the winds, we went to Jolly Roger and the obligitory McDonalds for birthemeday tea time treats :)

This weeks dare is set by the fantabulous Rachel :)

"Well I thought we have had plenty of flowers and hearts and girly things so I would like some cards with some teen spirit please."

Weirdly I made a DL card and ....timed it... it took 35 minutes :)

I used Scenic Route paper, printed sentiment, MM and Queen and Co brad, Grungeboard skull - coloured it with a gel pen, added Ranger Perfect Medium and embossing powder then heated it too much so that it crackled, was a tinsy bit worrying when it started smoking lol but looks ok :), 7Gypsies dots stamp and a Woodware punch, inking and doodling.

TFL :)

I really like your grungy card Jo. Teens are hard work to make cards for - worse than men!! Quick question Jo. On Liz's PP blog, she said that you had made one of those bow type things that you put on prezzies (not technical - sorry lolxx) and it was made out of PP stuff I think. It said that you had instructions on your blog. I've looked loads of times but cant see it. Do you still have the instructions please? Sorry to bother you with it but I would love to have a go at making some. If it's easier to contact me via e-mail, it's - thanks xxxx.
