Distressing


Good day to you all. This fortnight at Magnolia Down Under Challenges we have a great theme/challenge for you and that is to 'Distress'. The more the better I reckon. What do you think...??? LOL. On this card I distressed all the edges of my DP from Cosmo Cricket with my scissors and rubbed a little ink over the sides as well to give a little bit of a vintage look . I just love this stamp - baking Tilda and she was purchased at Magnolia Down Under Store but alas she is sold out like a lot of the stamps they are just flying out the door. LOL. This Earth Love DP is just so gorgeous and so not what I normally use but worked well. Can't go past making the flowers with my Slice machine and then sticking some buttons on there.

Unfortunately yesterday wasn't a good day for hubby. He woke up with a really bad headache that turned into a migraine - so alas I had to take the kids to the party all by my lonesome. Thankfully the boys are at an age where I don't really have to worry too much about them. They went straight outside and played yesterday. I was confined inside as my little girl decided that she didn't want to leave my side and didn't really go off on her own until just before we left. Typical....!!!! LOL. The birthday girl was all smiles all day and only cried when the party hat was put on her head. Poor thing wasn't happy. Sorry no photos.

Enjoy your day

Products: magnolia stamp; SU Best Yet stamp; Su very Vanilla & mellow Moss card; Cosmo Cricket Earth Love DP; Versafine Vintage Sepia ink; buttons.

Rotten headaches!!! They can be soo debilitating - and even after they're gone you feel washed out - hope hubby is feeling better now!

Your card is super gorgeous though - I love the soft muted tones!
