Challenge 53 - How Distressing!!!

It's Saturday again! And you know what that means!! It's time for another Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge!!!

But before I get to that.....let me tell you what happened to me today!! So this weekend is my stampin' getaway with my girlies and I've been looking forward to this for a while now....I really need a couple of days away to have fun and relax a tiny bit after the busyness of the last few weeks. So for the last few days I've been preparing...packing up all the stuff I wanted to bring with me....my Copics, my ink, paper, patterned paper, flowers, ribbon, punches, nesties...you know the drill.

Do you ever head out on a trip and feel like you think there is something you may have left behind? You do your mental checklist and you remember putting everything important in the vehicle. So we drive about two hours up north in the middle of nowhere. Yaaaay! We're finally here! We're all excited and we start carting in our vanload of 'stuff'....and slowly I come to realize that my bag of clothing....is nowhere to be found. Apparently that's what I left behind. So....I'm here.....stamping and colouring.....nekkid. JUST kidding! haha! Thankfully I have friends who don't mind sharing!



Anyhoooooo.......this week's awesome challenge is brought to you by the totally terrific TARA! She wants us to distress our creations in any way you like! For my card I used the new NICK! I opened up a new pack of Stampin' Up designer papers that I just got and stamped Mr. Nick on Neenah cardstock and coloured him up using my Copics. Then I distressed up just about every single layer on this card and I love all the texture! I added some taffeta ribbon and some shiny silver brads. Doesn't Nick look dapper?!



So if you'd like to join us for our distressing challenge this week, just use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp on your creation and then show it off over at the challenge blog! And be sure to hop over there and check out the gorgeous samples from our Krafty Girls and Guests!!

Happy kraftin'!

Who needs clean clothes when you are stamping and having fun with friends?!?! Could have been worse. Could have been your copics you forgot!!!! Now, THAT would have been bad!!!

Love your card Kimmie! Distressingly fabulous!! Thanks so much for having me on as a guest this month so I can play too!! xx
