So Cute...

My 13-year-old daughter says, "You're so cute, (insert any family member here)" all the time...

You're so cute, Mom...

You're so cute, Dad...

You're so cute, Mud...

It's become a joke.  

It's not cute anymore.

She. Even. Texts. It. 

Here's a card with a little sticker that she will receive at camp next week, and she will laugh and laugh...:

Supplies and notes:
  • I drew my stripes with the 12 colorful Distress Crayons on watercolor paper then washed over it all with water to soften them a little bit
  • The paper was then scored heavily to easily tear along the edges.  The same was done with the card edge.
  • I added some of my fave trim to bring out the colors, then added some dimensional adhesive to the irritating (haha) Collage Press sticker and popped it up above the trim
  • The panel was mounted onto some beautiful purple DCWV cardstock
I plan to enter this into the current Addicted to CAS challenge:

    I remember my time as I was 8-12 in the elementary school I love drew all with my pencil colors but now I use watercolor marker hehe

  4. Teenagers find expressions they like and use them all the time, don't they. I can think of worse things to say though, than 'you're cute', lol. She'll love her card!
