ANOTHER SOMETHING DIFFERENT


Blimey, get me, trying lots of new stuff!! My very talented friend Emma tried to explain to me how to get the 'distressed' look - (I mean on the cards, not on me... I have that sorted LOL!) on the edges of paper, etc. So I bought a load of cotton buds and some Versamark and started trashing lots of bits of paper.

Mum asked me to make a card for my aged aunt, a sort of "just to say hi" card, so I thought I'd have a go at being distressed. And believe you me, I am very distressed having spent several hours on this!
I quite like the end result - providing no one looks too closely! - but the ink doesn't come off your fingers for ages! TFL x

Love your card. The colors are so pretty and your mini album will be such a blessing to your friend. Lovin all the pattern paper. Missy is just fine. She is very stubborn and surely has a mind of her own. We're having a bear of a time house training her because she was in the pet store for 5 months. So I'm hoping she'll get it eventually. Her kennel cough is all gone and she is a blast. She makes us laugh and she is so loveable. Thanks for asking. Can't wait to see what she'll look like when she's fully grown.

Smiles,
Melanie
