Jingle Bells

Hi all wow what a cold frosty morning we woke up to, the sun is now shining but very cold, much better than all the rain we have had the last week or two.

Today starts a new Challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and More this fortnight Lin is hosting , the theme is distress it, we would love you to join in I am looking forward to seeing all your wonderful creations.

For my card I have used Vintage Christmas CD from Crafters Companion to create my card, everything on my card is off the CD, I have distressed the edges of the papers with my tool from Tim Holtz and then inked the edges, I must admit this is out of my comfort zone I don't like getting messy fingers.

We are sponsored this challenge by
