Forever Young 18th birthday card for the picky teen in your life

Hello, everyone! Happy New year!! I hope you all have had a wonderful holiday. I know I have!

Since we are starting a new year, today is the day we start our resolutions to improve certain things in our lives. One of my resolutions this year is to post more on this blog. I have been so busy with Christmas with the Cricut I have really neglected this blog. I am telling you that starting today I am going to make a huge effort to post more cards and layouts on this blog. As a matter of fact, I have a posts queued for every other day this month until the 25th. I plan on making more to finish the month off as well. I have decided not to give myself a mandate, because just like any other resolution as soon as I let myself down I will stop trying. Instead I am just going to make more of an effort and not be so hard on myself when I fail. I am still in college after all and that Christmas with the Cricut blog is not going away anytime soon. I know I will sometimes stumble, but plan on standing up and dusting myself off and moving forward.

So, on to today's card....


I made it using the Designer's Calendar cartridge for the '18' and Forever Young for the silhouetted woman. The paper that I used was the Basic Grey 'Wisteria', which I just adore. The stamped sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

Have a wonderful rest of your holiday weekend!

What a superb card for a very ackward age, I know my daughter would love this type of card. Don't be too hard on yourself you ladies do a fabulous job over at Christmas with the cricut and everyone will know where to find your work which is always very inspirational.

This is SO stylish! I love how you combined the Wisteria paper from BG with that silhouette from the Forever Young cartridge. I swear, the cartridge gets better and better the more I see things made with it!

Too darn cute!! LOVE IT!
