Well yesterday I didn’t do one bit of crafting…life with a 2 year old is anything but predictable. Then I went out for supper with the hubby and kiddo, and came home and went to bed, where I watched some tv and then hubby gave me a massage and I crashed. Zach (2 year old monkey!) did not want to sleep at all last night, and was up about 10 times in the night..needless to say hubby and i are tired today, but he had to go to work. I think its early bedtime tonight for EVERYONE!!!

Anyhow, onto the dares of the day …

 Edited because I just went over to my fave cuttlebug challenge blog and here is their challenge for this week :

Our Cuttlebug Inspiration this week is to add distress as part of textures.

there are so many ways to distress to add oomph to your creations.

  1. You can add a sliver of water to the edge of the paper and gently fold it back and let it air dry.
  2. You can Use Basic Precision files to Distress kit the edges.
  3. Tim Holtz Sanding grits or at your Home center you can get sanding papers grit medium #100

I believe I am going to combine all of the challenges to create one fabulous card…but Im not sure…It all depends how the day goes…

Happy Scrappy Days,
