Distressed Piggy :)

Hi there peeps and hope you are all OK.

It was a busy weekend to say the least – 2 weddings (no funerals though lol!!)  so we are a bit behind, so I am doing the catch up thing.

So here’s  my card for last Friday’s challenge over at the Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge where our theme was


Well those who know me will find it quite amusing that I did this challenge cos I don’t do distressing – cos it distresses me no end, being a clean white space kind of piggy!!

But a challenge is a challenge so I did it and …..

… here’s the old card.

The sharp eyes among you may well notice something different here, apart from the distressing – I'll tell you at the end if you haven't guessed!!

As you can see, I went a bit mad and sanded practically everything with an edge on it  lol. I used a cute lil hAnglar girl and coloured hr with so many Copics but sadly lost the list when I was tidying up before we went away to the wedding – doh.

All I know is that like a bag of coloured sherbet, there are lots of E numbers :)

And a bit like my good self, all the papers are  Nitwits :)

I used some of the Tim Holtz Tattered Floral dies ((calm yourself Kath!!) ) as well as some Wild Orchid Crafts blooms and self adhesive rhinestones.

And yes the good old Magnolia leaf and swirl has been dragged out again – poor old chap!!!.

Well it never really gets put away to be honest lol!!!

The leaves are courtesy of Martha S as well – they are made with a MS Frond leaf punch. The leaf punch, swirl and Sir Tim’s dies are all from Simon Says Stamp.

That beeeeyoootiful lace is from the one and only Ribbon Girl an it’s 22mm cream fan Cluny lace.

OK have you guessed what's different, apart from distressing the hell out of everything on it practically?

Well I used a cream card blank which I never ever do - but it just looked better than the usual stark white.

Wasn't very exciting was it chicks – soz!!!

Right on that note I'm off  to fight with my migraine and I’ll see you tomoz for a bit of Papertakey stuff!!

Enjoy your evening and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
