Batman Teen Birthday

Our challenge for this week's Cricut Cardz Challenge was to create a birthday card for a teenager.  Talk about the perfect time to own Forever Young, Rock Princess or Dude!  But I have none of them and I didn't really want to do the whole "rocks" thing so I wasn't really sure just what I was going to do.......until yesterday morning.

I was looking at my cartridges and kept thinking what are my kids into (all but two are teenagers - one just turned 20 this year and the other will be 13 in a couple months).  Then it hit me, Batman!  Teenage boys still read the comics and watch the movies - even my husband still gets into some of that stuff so why not?

Plus this was the perfect opportunity to use some of those comic strip papers I found on clearance at Michael's for .14 cents not to mention using the cartridge for the first time.  And thus my card was born.  I will say that for smaller cuts this cartridge did much better than the Cars or Tinkerbell ones did.  The only cuts I had issues with were the eyes and teeth but even then they cut perfect - they just didn't seem to fit right so I painted in those parts. 

And now it's your turn to play along with us.  Just click on the link above for more information and to post a link to your teenage birthday card.
