hello all! hope you have had a wonderful Thanksgiving week! We had a nice and quiet holiday here at home...no travel...no visitors...and no going visiting! while i missed seeing my extended family, it was a nice change of pace! did a little shopping on black friday...took care of a good chunk of the Christmas gifts...and even picked up a gift for myself! I picked up the Vagabond by Sizzix on sale at AC Moore Friday morning...just now got around to trying it out today! I LOVE IT! very easy to use...because I'm not cranking anything...i feel less nervous about the thickness of materials i am sending through...now..have to clear a space in this disaster of a craft room and provide the Vagabond a permanent spot! anywho...enough about me...wanted to get crafty and play today so i took a peek at a few challenges out there. the first challenge i played along with was the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #23 (CCC#23) at Studio L3 which was Double Distress. I used a Tim Holtz Embossing Folder to get me started with that one. The second challenge is over at Simon Says Stamp and Show...Stamp and Show your Distress Inks...the two challenges went together soooo well! Here is my tag:
Here is a close up to kind of show you the different layers of distressing and inking:
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and maybe I'll be back later!
