A Little Bit Distressed over at Lili's Little Fairies!

In all honesty, I think I'm more distressed than this card! I was so not in the mood for distressing, which is unlike me, and I got in a flap. I had already coloured the image so just spent half an hour throwing bits and bobs at the card 'til there was no room left! Seemed like a super plan at the time.


Please excuse me, I'm a bit hazy on the detail. The papers are from Rusty Pickle (I bought a pack of these with some fab ribbon and trim from Create and Craft). The compass is from The Hobby House and has been distressed with alcohol inks. I've used the Tim Holtz Weathered Clock die and the film strip is also a Tim Holtz stamp distressed with alcohol ink. The image is a newish release from LOTV - called 'Walk the Plank'. My daughter would soooo make our dog do this if she could get him to move off the sofa!!

I've got an exciting weekend coming up - not!! I'm in the hospital all day Saturday - oooh yipee. I'm not that great with hospitals but I'm being a very big girl about the whole affair and trying to decide what sandwiches to take. I think, possibly, my poor dad has drawn the shortest straw - he's looking after the tiny terror all day. hehehe! I hope that whatever your doing this weekend you have a super time. Thank you for dropping by, super big hugs, Jayne xx

Well, thrown together or not hun, this is a super duper pirate card! I don't distress, well, not on cards anyway, so may well give this one a miss. They end up looking more traumatised than distressed. Will be thinking about you on Saturday - take egg n cress and get your revenge! Hugs Sxx
