Cooking with Cricut # 81: Girl/Teen Girl Thinking of You

Hello my friends and welcome to another Wednesday challenge at Cooking with Cricut. We have a special theme this week. We are making cards to send to two very special girls who are going through a pretty rough time. Patty is the daughter of a friend of one of our designers. She is 13 and fighting a rare form of cancer. Emily is a 6 year old fighting leukemia, and is this month's recipient for Madison's Feel the Love project. We are making cards/projects to send them a little cheer. Here are my cards:
When I saw this theme I immediately wanted to pull out my Rock Princess cart. I think it is so girlie and fun, but still has that rocker edge. I kept with a pink and black color scheme as it fits so perfectly with the images. Here are the individual cards:
For the most part they are the same, but I did change one image so they had a little difference. On this one I used the cute skullie with the big bow, and the kitty rocking the headphones in the other:
I inked the edges of the card and the patterned paper mat with black ink for a little definition and edge. I wanted to add a little 'you rock' sentiment to the interior, so I used a stamp from Whimsical Designs:
I hope you will join us in sending a HUGE crafty hug to these two very deserving little girls. You can find all the info on the Cooking with Cricut blog.
