A Spoonful of Sugar #67 – Distressing

Now I don’t really “do” distressing so whenever I see a challenge coming up on that theme I do sort of shudder!  At A Spoonful of Sugar this week we’re looking for distressed effects on your cards so I have completely cheated and used a paper with a distressed effect already printed on it!  It’s from a HUGE K & Co pad I recently got from QVC which I have to say I am chuffed with.  It’s got some gorgeous papers in it and only a few that are “not me”.   I have paper pieced the clothes and umbrella with coordinating papers from the pad and used my retro daisy punches from Craft U Love for the flowers.  Please pop over to the blog and have a look at how distressing is meant to be done as the other DT members are all much better than me!

Well, it’s the final 24 hours before school starts again (hallelujah)  and as usual everything has been left to the last minute.  I still have uniforms to iron (with name tags to attach), PE kits to sort, lunch box contents to buy, children to bathe, socks to pair…..  Don’t get me wrong, I love having them around and have really enjoyed these holidays but I have SO much to do and the house needs to get back to normality.  They NEED school!!  I NEED school!!

Off to find the iron!

Hugs,
