Paige's birthday card

One of my husband's nieces is having a birthday soon. Paige is going to be 14 - so I thought I'd do her a quick card. This image was one of the ones that the lovely Paula sent me recently. It is rather cute. I coloured it with my aqua crayons ( just love them). Once I had cut out the image, I distressed the edges with Spiced Marmalade ink and stuck them to the PP that I put on the white card stock. A very quick and simple card.

The rest of my day has been looking everywhere for my Fiskar scissors... They have just disappeared. I tidied the room up - but no show... I ended up going out to buy some new scissors ( got Titanium ones) on my way to the gym. No doubt the missing ones will now turn up!!!! I really like the Fiskar ones - they are more of a snip rather than a scissor... great for the small cutting out.  I'll have to get used to using real scissors again.

This weekend our son and his girlfriend are having a few of their friends around to celebrate their 21st birthdays.... A few are coming for a barbeque dinner first and then the rest are coming afterwards. I have decided that our garage will be the best place for them to have the party - so my nice clean and tidy house stays that way!!!!  I just hope the weather holds up and isn't too cool. 

Thanks for stopping by and to all my American friends - hope Thanksgiving was good and you enjoyed the family time together.

Beautiful card and so perfect for a teenager to enjoy! Oh Dawn, I have many scissor stories for you but did you know that I once accidentally dropped mine into the trash can after a project was completed, I was devastated because it was too late when I thought about it! They were my best scissors ever, all the ones I have used now just don't compare! I hope you will find the original someday...or at least know what happened to them, hope the party turned out great, looking forward to more pics!
