Distressed


Aren't Hanglar stamps just so cute?  This image was sent to me by a wonderful blogging friend and I've been ever so nervous about inking up! Took the plunge last night and made this card for a few challenges.              ABC challenge- Unused stash. The paper I've used  I've had for years and never cut it! Its Basic Grey Motifica. Also the flowers are primas I dug out of the bottom of a drawer. And I guess the Hanglar- never used one before!
Pixie Cottage- sketch, including vintage/distressing.
Crafty cardmakers- distressed

I forgot to add in my post yesterday that Brodie has also eaten a lipstick, some business cards and my cute cellphone case! He has such a varied palate!   I've just been out filling in holes and re-turfing where he has torn up the lawn. I know he'll settle, its just a matter of time.......!!! But how long?!!!!!!!!
   We had Abbie & Bruno go through the same things but then there were two of them egging each other on so I think they were worse if thats possible!
 Oh, and my eye feels better today, no harm done!
