It's so distressing!

Oh my goodness - with blogger going down for a couple of days the interuption to our crafty lives was certainly a little bit distressing wasn't it? hehehe - I suppose we all found our ironning baskets and dusting and at least have the housework back up to date :)

This post was supposed to go live on Thursday night but I am at least able to share it with you now :) The challenge at Cute Card Thurday this week is "It's so distressing". I had a bit of fun making a more 'kiddie' style card. This is Tilda with Skipping Rope.

The card itself is just a basic 5 x 6 card with a triangle attached to the top for the roof, nothing especially tricky :)  I cut out the window with a Nestie and just added some strips cut with doo hickeys for decoration. All of the edges have been distressed with my scissors instead of my distressing tool.

The grass was cut with my cricut and the sentiment was just cut from a piece of DP from the Prima Annalee stack.
