a “sick” teen christmas card November 20, 2009

I wanted to make my daughter a Christmas card that would bring a smile to her face….and sorta make me feel cool!  I invisioned a bright, wild, and busy card for Morgan.  Using Beate’s wsc107, I got to work and created this card for her:

If you have a teen around, you probably know the language and can relate to the sentiment.   Makes no sense to me.  I just get a silly look from Morgan when I try to speak her language.  Honestly, I feel a bit silly too….I’ll just stick to putting the sentiments on greetings  for her.

To create my sentiment, I used Calendar Alphabet & Numbers and Grateful Greetings stamp sets on Whisper White cardstock. 

The sketch has a flower at this location.  I made this a circular focal point with some fun elements that I know Morgan will enjoy looking at.

Want to see more samples for wsc107?  Head on over to see what these talented ladies have created:  Beate for sketch and details, Cambria, Charmaine, Jenn Lori, and Sharon.

Have a wonderful weekend!!!
