Another teen card

Here's another Paisley cartridge card. The background papers are from the DCWV generation stack, and I punched a square with one of the new Martha Stewart punches, then chopped the square in half. I cut some tiny notes out of the background paper to put on the screen

How do you like my stitching? It's pretend - I couldn't be bothered to thread the machine, and just ran the empty needle in a herringbone stitch over the cardstock, then drew in the stitch lines. It looks okay - laziness sometimes pays dividends!
I added some rain drop bling to the earphones and a metal dot on the Ipod control.
Cricut cartridge - Paisley. Ipod cut at 4"
papers - Generation stack by DCWV
tiny letters - Making Memories
2U letters - Papermania

After my jokey comment about bugs and the doctor's surgery, it is now apparent that I DID pick up something, so I am achey, coughing and sneezing, I would be healthier if I had stayed at home. Talk about ironic.......................

Oh Miss February what a lovely card! Such a great style for teens. Youve given me a great idea for how to solve my problem of using my PaP's!

I did smile at your Calendar Girls comments!! They haven't made any crafting equipment big enough to hide my modesty! lol!! Well, apart from an upturned table!

Morning En. Sorry to hear you've sucumbed to the bugs, hope it doesn't last too long and congrats on being Miss February!!!
Love your crop of cards this week. I saw the feet faces card in PCI and it made me smile but I didn't realise it was one of yours, it's brilliant. Makes a lovely change from all the hearts!!
Enjoy your weekend.

This is a typical teen card without the phone or an Ipod so we could not do.
A beautiful card.

HAPPY FRIDAY!! I love your faux stitching idea - I also have a kit I got recently with templates that I could just use my piercer to punch the holes! I like the look so I may try it soon! TFS!

You seriously saved me with the last teen card that you did - the one with the cell phone. I made mine more simple because he is not the card-saving type and why bother. This is another great one! Thanks, Pam
ps Get well soon!
