CYDA Challenge #37 ~ Distressing

Good Morning!!!

It's a bit breezy and chilly out there today, but gotta do the shopping today and other bits and bobs, get them out of the way then I can chill for the rest of the weekend and get some more crafting done.

It's time for a new challenge over at Craft Your Days Away and this time round the lovely Lesley has chosen the theme of....


Ohhhh it normally pains me to get tearing my beloved papers, but this time round I got dug in to my scraps stash and it didn't feel quite so  So here is my card....

We are being sponsored this time round by another new sponsor to CYDA

I've used 'Gus Fishing' from Bugaboo Stamps, coloured with promarkers.  Distressing always tends to point me to a man's card for some reason and more often then not it's fishing themed too.

Please check out the fabulous creations from our two Bugaboo GD's and of course the awesome CYDA DT over on the challenge blog.  Hopefully you can also join us for this fortnights challenge where you could be our random winner of SEVEN Bugaboo images of your choice!!!

Well enjoy your weekend whatever your plans are and thank you for stopping by.

Altered Tub

Hiya all!!!

Poorly with a stinking cold at the moment, it's totally ruined all my plans for my extra few days off, isn't it just typical.

At least I've got some time to do a bit of crafting, and thats just what I've been doing this morning.  I've not altered anything for absolutely ages, but I've got about half a dozen empty tubs left over from Christmas and just couldn't bear to throw them away cos i just know they'll come in handy, so I got to work on one of them today.....

I'm entering this into the following challenges....

Pollycraft Monday Challenge - Anything But A Card
