Rugged Riley

Happy Friday Everyone!

I'm pretty tired from working all week and staying up wayyy past midnight every night this week, so please excuse this short post.

It's Hanna Stamps Friday challenge again and this week's host is the talented Nikki Fairbairn of Bunny Zoe fame. Her challenge to the DT and anyone who wishes to play along this week is to use the distressing technique on a card. Distress is anyhow, anyway! You can check out all the details....HERE.

I used the recently released Safari Riley for my card and those sunflowers are from the I Love My Garden set released last year. I paired them with some paper from Basic Grey's Archaic Collection and this week's Card Postitioning System's sketch 128. I used twine and some eyelets to create the three horizontal stripes on the sketch. Adds a lot to the distressed look, don't you think?

By the way, I've restocked my card shop with a bunch of cards from the past two weeks including the Rockstar Anya one from TGF blog hop and my Flutter By card from the other day. Hoping they find good homes soon. :) (If you see one you like, but it's not in my shop, just drop me a line and I can probably be convinced to part with it!)

Ok, I'm pooped! Seven more hours and I'm done. Weekend, here I come! :) Enjoy yours!
