Distressing Dotty

Good morning everyone!

I can finally say that I've gotten rid of my cold, man that took a long while! So if I didn't manage to visit you and your blog the last few weeks, I'm sorry about that but have really been not feeling my best. I promise to make it up to you though and come and see you all this week ;)

Another week gone means another challenge @ Delightful Challenges: Distressing! In my sample, I've used both paper and ink distressing, but you can do either or both or distress in another way. Just don't get distressed yourself, that would be a waste. And it doesn't count :)

Somehow I really think Kraft card suits a distressed style better than a white base card, I don't know why. Hope you can join us! We are being sponsored by Joanna Sheen once again, offering the winner a 10 pound store voucher!
