Worlds Most Challenging Cards?

Hi All,

I've come to the conclusion that the worlds most challenging cards to make are those for men and teenage girls, and this afternoon I've had to do both. I am now feeling wilted and wobbly and in desperate need of chocolate!

First off is a birthday card for a friend's husband. I used the Sugar Nellie Home Grown Manga Boy, coloured with ProMarkers, and matted with DCWV Neutral Stack cardstock. The backing paper is Dovecraft. The text is Woodware small white peel-off greetings and gems are from stash.

Second, and the hardest of the two, is a card for hubby's teenage niece. I've already made two cards for her this week and binned them. Why are 14 year olds so difficult (in all senses)?

Anyhoo, I have used Sugar Nellie Little Cotton Rabbit, again coloured with ProMarkers, and the backing papers are Papermania Spring Burst. Text is Woodware as before, and gems and border peel-offs from stash. I really hope this one is ok, but knowing teenagers, I shall probably never find out!

Hope you are all having a fantastic weekend. I'm now off to put my feet up for a few minutes with a nice cuppa. See you soon!

PMS Squirrel! Ref my 'Shroom' card - I was trying to think of a 'mush-room' sentiment to go with the image, but couldn't come up with one!
