Feeling Distressed??


I'm sure you're all still plowing through the piles of cards you got yesterday for valentines day!  

Today our new challenges launches at

And our theme this fortnight is distressing!!  There's something quite satisfying about distressing paper don't you think?

We have a fab sponsor for our challenge (as always!!) and this fortnight it's Lili of the Valley!!


Anyway here's my card.  This is the valentines card I made for my husband:

Honestly I have no idea where the papers are from - I think the hearts one is My Mind Eye.

Anyway I do hope you can join us for our challenge - time to get out your scissors, distressing tool and ink and rough up some paper!  I can't wait to see what you all create!
