Challenge #39 - Distressing

Good morning. Welcome to another new challenge, thank you to everyone who entered last week's challenge, we had an amazing number of entries and I will be announcing the winner later.

This week's challenge is 'distressing', now I think I caused the DT lots of distress with this one but they have done a great job. For this challenge you can just let your imagination run wild and maybe tear some edges, use some distress inks, rag your edges with scissors whatever takes your fancy we can't wait to see your creations.

This week we are sponsored by Di at Di's DigiDownloads. Di has the most gorgeous digi - images on her site and this week you can win 5 of your choice.

I started my digi site at the beginning of the year, i have been cardmaking for about 3 years and decided to start drawing my own images, i have been drawing all my life and studied graphic design many years ago i now work as a medical photographer part time giving me the other hours to draw and make cards.When starting my site i had to find a theme so i started with my two children’s favourite toys, Kaboodle the cat and Cookie the dog, Maisy is a little girl based on my daughter, who she named Maisy. Since then i have expanded my animals, and Maisy has now had a makeover- images called Makeover Maisy and has also a little sister Daisy and big sister Babs. I do hope you like them!

Below are the wonderful cards by the DT and can we ask that you only enter once to make it fair on everyone as duplicate entries will have to be deleted. Suzie x
