Last week we reached one of those birthday milestones in our house ... my wonderful baby turned 13! Yes, I am now the mother of a teenager ... aaaaaaaghhh!!! Such a momentous birthday demanded of course, a fitting card :) so here's what I came up with ...

Now as I've been making cards for quite a few years my kids don't just give me a present wish list for their birthdays, I also get requests for what they would like on their birthday cards! Jess is a big fan of The Wanted & Jessie J so they were her requests. I was a bit cunning & hid them :) ...

I'm no longer a Stampin' Up demonstrator, but I still find myself going straight to their products when I have a card to make & this time was no exception!
Jess had a lovely birthday ... we went to Frankie & Benny's for her birthday meal & Cadbury World ... yum yum :) Fingers crossed the next 5 or 6 years aren't too painful. Jess showed her the Harry Enfield YouTube clip of when Kevin turns into a teenager, she loved it.

Supplies used:
Papers - Rose Red subtles design series paper; SU
Ink pads - Rose Red, Baja Breeze, Pretty in Pink; SU
Punches/Dies - Pennant Parade punch, Beautiful Wings embosslits; SU
Ribbons - Baja Breeze Seam binding, Pretty in Pink grossgrain; SU
Stamps - Dots; Hero Arts, Alphabet; Banana Frog
Other - Pearl Jewels; SU, Barn doors; Piggy tales

Thanks for popping by & take care x

  1. What a fab card with its hidden pics Tamara! The Kevin sketch is a rite of passage viewing in our family when my children become teenagers! (Two down, one to go...) Vicky x
