Our Creative Corner Challenge

Hello & Happy Saturday!

Was a busy day here! Kelsey had an exam to do at the Library in Webb City then we did our grocery shopping, dog walking and dropped Kelsey off at the movies and we skipped out for a quick dinner and halfway thru our dinner the cell rings....the child is ready to be picked up! LOL So much for a few quiet mins alone!!

Anyways, I have been working all day on my Our Creative Corner Challenge card. I got alittle stressed out because I could not find my distresser tool that SU sold a few years back. The challenge today was the sketch below but also we had to distress or crumble up something. So I took my scissors and distressed my main focal image.
Below is the sketch and my samples..

Still bothers me where that distresser is!
One day when I don't need it is when i'll find it!

I decided to do a St Patty's card since it's coming quickly! I used a stamp from SU called Go Green which was a single stamp they sold last year and it is set #28 in my challenge to see that all my stamps see ink in 2011.

Love the crisp, clean design on this card! Of course I love green, so it's always a winner when you use that color! I've lost stuff before and it generally turns up in the most unlikely places! A good stamping friend of mine always uses her fingernail to distress her cards! I guess we always have that option at our fingertips! LOL!

I just love all the shamrocks on this card! Too cute! And I totally agree with you - that you'll find that distresser when you don't need it! I house cleaned last summer, and thought my good winter leather driving gloves needed a better place to be stored, so I reorganized and moved them and forget where I put them! LOL Have I been able to find them all winter? Nope! I know as soon as spring arrives they'll show up too! LOL Murphy's law I suppose:)
Have a great Sunday!

Don't stress over your mislaid distressing tool! You did a perfect job without it. Your card is wonderful. I love the white with the sharp contrast of green. Wonderful St. Patty's Day card. So happy you joined in the fun with us this week at Our Creative Corner. Thanks so much for being a "regular" with us!
