I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

ABC....D is for distressing


This is my DT card for this week's challenge on ABC - D is for distressing.

Now I don't do distressing on my cards much but thought I would give it a bash! I have put middle band of card through cuttlebug embossing folder then sanded the top to distress. The image is Sugar Nellie "Gorguss girls" coloured with promarkers and paper pieced dress with sentiment from Whiff of Joy. Cuttlebug flowers, ribbon, brads and gems to finish.
