Stamp Something -- Distress Something

Happy Friday my friends!  I'm so happy today because I've actually done the challenge correctly!!!  If you visited my last post, you know what I'm talking about!  hahahaha!!  I really can't believe it Friday again.  Where did this week go!  Been so busy with carting little ones around that it's just flown by.

Here's what I've come up with for this week's challenge at Stamp Something which is Distress Something.  OK... so I was bragging above about how I did the challenge correctly this time.  Well... I must admit, that was only after I'd finished my card, taken pics and was ready to post.  THEN I realized all this was done without any distressing!!!  ACK!  Luckily distressing IS something you can do after the fact and I did!  Obviously I did the sponging type of distressing.  Holy moly... when will I learn?!?!?!?  hahahaha!  I'd better just keep laughing!

I thought I'd share what this card looked like before I distressed it.   Makes quite a difference, eh?  I even distressed the roses which I ended up liking quite a bit!!  I actually like this version better, but the distressed one isn't bad either.

Anyway... our sponsor this week is once again Stamp and Create which features many Wags 'n Whiskers stamps.  Isn't this little gal and her little chickie so adorable?  I was so pleased this is the stamp our sponsor was generous enough to give me to work with.  Both these little chicks are just so sweet and cuddly!  Thank you ladies!

Once again, the little girl's dress and accessories look real blue, but IRL they match the aqua/turquoise blue in the DP papers very well.  Sorry I'm not able to provide you a better respresentation of the true colors.  {sigh}

For the layout, I chose the challenge over at The Sweet Stop.  I just thought it was fabulous!  Thank you ladies!!!  I'll also enter into Crazy Catz Weekly Challenge - Spring.

I guess that's it for today.  Thanks for stopping by.  I always enjoy your comments as they always make me smile!!!  Have a great Friday my frirends.
