Most Distressing


Actually not feeling too distressed right now, earlier this morning was another story altogether mind....kids arguing, answering back and found Hollie had written 'Haunted' on my bedroom wall in neon yellow and all before 8am too. Since then however all is calm once more. Strangely enough I did sit and play sylvanians with them both for abit before they went out, it was so calming and I actually really enjoyed it. We each had our own family, Louis was in charge of the big house, Hollie had Willow cottage and I had the gypsy caravan (mmmm are they trying to tell me something??). Would recommend this to anyone else expieriencing a stressful time.
Anyway, my reason for blogging this morning....I've already done my DCM challenge today...how good am I???? The challenge this week is 'How Distressing'. Here is the challenge:

You can make a card for any season, any holiday, any occaision but you need to use either a fingernail, curled edges, sandpaper, tearing, anything you like really as long as looks like it's had a fair bit or wear and tear.

An my card is above : ) I used a small piece from the Basic Grey 'Sugared' range...one of my faves at the mo, giant ric rac, a silky blume and a dovecraft copper brad which I filed down to give another distressed look. xx
