Distressed but simple!

Evening All,

Hope you're all well and having a lovely weekend. My Sunday has been sister and her hubbie came over to see me and we went to a local antique warehouse. It's a beautiful place called the Packhouse, and its full of gorgeous antiques and lushious interiors. I bought a fab vintage box handbag and my sister bought gorgeous vinatge champagne glasses. Poor Jim followed us around as we cooed at everything...he said he enjoyed himself, but I'm not too sure!

Anyway, today's card is for two different challenges....over at Secret Crafter we have Clean & Simple - they want to see simple, quick to make cards. Then the September challenge over at Sir Stampalot is "all distressed".

I've used one of my favourite sentiments, along with one of my favourite colours! This card is quick and easy to make - all you need is your sentiment and a selection of papers....the purple rectangles are cut using a guillotine and the cute spotty paper is torn by hand. I hand cut the shoes out of matching purple paper and then stuck it all together - easy peasy!

Check out the two blogs to see all the gorgeous DT cards.

Right, I'm off to make some more cards, I need to add to my MISI shop...I'm feeling quite girlie, so I think there will be cupcakes and shoes! Watch this space!

Thanks for popping by,
Wedgie xxx
