Day 7 Reveal

 I think Diane rocked her reveal yesterday. I love Diane's 4 sided cards as I call them....I find it hard enough to do TWO sides let alone 4!

Today was Michele's turn but unfortunately she's still unwell and I've ordered her to her bed and told her to stay there until she's feeling 100%! Get well soon MP...we miss you.

Luckily I had already made cards using Michele's images weeks ago.

First up is Hair Straightening Jess

I'm sure this will be a familiar scene to a lot of you. Actually I think that looks a bit like me in the mornings minus the ipod, less wrinkles oh and less grey hairs lol.
Next is Skateboarder Josh

Years ago Steven was into skateboarding and as there wasn't a local skate park near us I used to drive for miles so he and a friend could skate. I would pack a 'crafty bag' and while they were doing their thing I would be cutting, colouring and glittering to my hearts content. The dashboad would have more sparkle than my cards and I would find glitter for weeks afterwards lol. Ahhhh the things we do for our kids.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Craft Your Days Away - Just For Men/Boys + Button
One Stop Craft Challenge - Handmade Flower
Crafty Ribbons - Birthday
Cute Card Thursday - Birthday
Lia Stampz Challenge - Anything Goes + Sentiment
Catered Crop - Stitching
Kenny K - One For The Boys
PanPastel - Add A Flower

I hope you like the new additions to The Teenager's collection. Remember if you would like to win one of these images leave a comment on the CHALLENGE BLOG AND if you leave a comment on each day of the reveal you could win a £15 voucher to spend in the LCI store!

I had a lovely Mother's Day yesterday. After my morning with Sadie I came home and vacuumed, hung out a wash and ironed...ok so that wasn't so lovely but I met Nicole after her work at Yo Sushi for dinner and then we went to see 21 Jump Street at the cinema.

Against the odds Kilmarnock beat Celtic to win the League Cup 1 - 0. Joy quickly turned to sadness as one of Ryan's teammates dad had a heart attack in the stand just after the final whistle and later passed away in hospital. Ryan was distraught and our thoughts and prayers are with Liam and his family. Puts a lot of things into perspective doesn't it.
Thanks for visiting me today

Catch ya later x

Great job with the cards Kerry. I adore the first one!! That's is such terrible news about your son's friends dad, how sad for them all:(
Glad you had a nice Mother's Day, wish I could say the same lol.

Marianne said...

So sorry to hear about Liam's father. You're right, news like that really does put things into perspective, doesn't it.
As for your cards, they are gorgeous. So much detail in the first card and such fab colouring all around. I do admire people that can do MORE THAN ONE side of the card, LOL!
