Birthday cards for a Teenage Girl!

We are sponsoring Robyn's Fetish Challenge #252 and their theme this week is...Birthday card for a teenage girl! Which was perfect for me because my niece turns 13 today!! So this is the birthday card I sent her.
Lots of Thoughts Digital Stamp just reminded of teenagers texting so I went with that. I also liked the color scheme as it seemed very "teenage/80's" to me. Which the 80's has come back and is very popular again!!

Hope you will be inspired to make a teenage girl birthday card so you can come play at Robyn's Fetish for a chance to win a $15.00 gift code to Deedee's Digis!

Inspiration with New and Older sets

Deedee put out new sets this week and we all smiled real big and maybe even "squealed" with delight when we saw them! So I knew the girls would be busy in their craft rooms. I told them whatever they made, either new or old digis, this week their work would be highlighted today to hopefully inspire you this weekend!

Here is some inspiration from some older sets before we get to the new sets!!

 It appears Zella was ready to move on to the next holiday like I was! She decided to try the luck of Irish and it appeared to work!

I love how she added the wording to the bottom of the flower block as it looks like it was meant to be there! With a touch of some flowers and embossing a beautiful Easter card is ready to be mailed.

I like how she cut the patterned paper into a shape as its appealing to the eye. The pink and yellow together is perfect!

I'm telling you that you are going to LOVE these new sets!! I know I will be using them soon. The other girls couldn't wait and made some really cute cards!

CAS loveliness!! I love just the simple touch of the embossed lines. Beautiful!

Oh I have some of that paper...this is perfect for it. And the pearls in the corner are the perfect finishing touch.

Love how she added the black line to the die cut out. I must find out what punch she used on the corners!!

It's a Boy with Granmargaret

What's almost as sweet as a precious, new baby boy? A card by our February Guest Designer, Granmargaret, celebrating a precious, new baby boy! Once again, as is her fabulous style, Granmargaret combined elements from different digi sets to create this darling piece. She sat the baby boy from the "Baby Blessings (Boy)" set on a background of papers from this same set, and placed his little rattle right in his hand. Then she added a darling gift basket of treats, as is so common to gift when a new baby arrives, using the image from the "Basket of Love" set. The various sentiments that she added, which really shout the tremendous joy of the blessing of this new baby, are from these same two sets. I would never have thought to use these two digi sets together, but seeing Granmargaret do it just makes sense, you know? Always so versatile, these digis...thanks for the darling reminder and inspiration, Granmargaret!

You can find the two sets that Granmargaret used to make today's project here:

* For European Residents ONLY -- "Baby Blessings (Boy) EU Version" and "Basket of Love EU Version"

* For non-EU Residents ONLY -- "Baby Blessings (Boy)" and "Basket of Love"

We will have one last Guest Designer creation to share with you by Granmargaret next Wednesday, so please remember to stop by then. In the meantime, you can see her other fun projects at her blog -- "Granmargaret's Cards & Stuff."

Still feeling Love or ready for something else?

Are you still in the mood to make "love" cards? If so the Outlawz Greeting Challenge with the theme of Love will be perfect for you to play along with this week. Steph had a few Valentine cards she still needed to make so this challenge was easy for her. The first card she made is even a shaker card...pretty cool! I also love the rainbow color of hearts....must ask her where she got that paper!

If you were like me I was so over "love" cards since I made several Valentine Cards for the guys at work. Thankful the challenge is also allowing a color challenge (Red, Pink and White) for us who weren't inspired to make "love" cards. Man I struggled with just trying to keep it to those three colors for the majority of the card. The first card I did using Meowy Christmas is nothing what I would of done normally but was trying to keep it with those colors....which I slacked on the white but thought it would work. Then I realized I forgot the "greeting" which is what the Outlawz Greeting Challenge is all about!! So I went back to the craft table and created the ornamental card with all three colors and a sentiment!
