In between age

Hi everybody and thank you for all the wonderful comments on my last card.  The card I have today is for Gerry's grand daughter who is in her early teens - too old for a childish card and too young for an adult card - so since she is now taking an interest in clothes and makeup and hairstyles I thought that one of the fabulous shoes would appeal to her.  I have used kraft card for a change after seeing how good it looks on Jacqui's cards  (http://jacquibourne7.blogspot.co.uk/) and also used some paper from Pink Petticoat , the dies are spellbinders and the base card is from craft creations.  Thank you for taking a look.

Marie-Louise, I haven't looked at your blog for a while, I don't know why, but I just love all the cards I have seen. This card is just right for a young lady who isn't old enough to have an adult card yet to old for a childish one.

Patricia St Martin said...

Marie Louise, I would like to ask you a question... Something to consider, Have you ever been on a design team? I do not think I have ever seen you post anything about doing some challenges, I could be wrong but is that something you ever thought about?? You do so many stunning cards and I know you stop at my blog. I'm the team leader at The Outlaws Twisted Thursday challenge and I'm looking for someone to join our team, would that be something you would be interested in? Here is my email icyurastamper@hotmail.com could you give me an email and we could talk about what it is all about. It would be wonderful if you would consider this.
Hus, Pat
