Funny card about raising teenagers (Bugaboo image)

Hi crafty friends,

Didn't this one photograph well, I love how it shows you the actual colours for a change lol. Sometimes it takes me forever to get a good photo of certain cards, does it you? They look so much prettier in real life.

Anyway, about my card, how funny is this image and sentiment from Bugaboo? I have a teenage daughter so I totally relate to this hehe. You can ask me on a Monday how things are going with her and I'll say "Oh, it's wonderful we're getting on lovely and she's so great" and come Tuesday, ask me the same question and I might be like "OMGosh, she's driving me nuts, where is this attitude coming from, why doesn't she do what she's supposed to do etc etc" hehe.

I have used some pearls and leaves from my company Flourish with a Bling.

Flourish with a Bling are a retail and wholesale online store. We have some fantastic themed packs (eg. Bling, vintage, fairy garden, boys, princess etc) at amazing prices, you can check them all out by clicking here.
