Bah! Humbug! 23 ... "Whateva!"

Anyone with a teenager in the family will be all too familiar with THAT word ... and also the many and varied meanings it has depending on the tone used to deliver it!
Our Bah! Humbug! Challenge this week is to make a card For A Teenager which turned out to be not as easy as first thought.  
Looking through my stash I discovered plenty of lovely supplies but they were either too cutsie or too traditional.  Time was running away in what was already a busy week, so at the last minute I opted for something cool ... or rather KOOL!
The snowman and penguin image was hiding in my PSP (Paint Shop Pro) folders and I added the text before printing it off and using some Stickles for a touch of sparkle.  The gorgeous self-adhesive sparkle paper was matted onto silver mirri and the beauty of this stuff is that it is super smooth so doesn't shed glitter everywhere.  A strip of blue tartan ribbon tied in a knot across a panel of dotty mirri card helps to decorate the large open space.  I toyed with the idea of adding some silver snowflakes and then immediately discounted it as being too fussy.  So that's really all there was to it and I'm left wondering why on earth something so easy took me so long to make lol!
Over at Humbug Hall there are other great ideas to see from Ann, Wendy and Christine.   I'm confident that when you've seen them you'll realise that making something suitable for a KOOL DUDE doesn't have to be difficult.
