Charisma Cardz # 41 - It's So Distressing....



Good morning everyone! What happened to the weather today?!!! Misty, grey and rainy.....YUK!!! I believe we're in for a nice weekend though so that's okay ;o)

I've entered this card into this week's Charisma Cardz Challenge where the theme is to distress. Rather than tear I decided to ink on this occasion to give a darker tinge to all the lines. I used lots of the yummy goodies Bev sent me for my candy win..... aren't those Poinsettias fabulous!!! And I'm totally in love with this WOJ Henry Mouse image..... too cute!!



Michele sent me some flowersoft from her online store to have a play with this week and it's the first time I've ever used it...... what lovely stuff it is and so versatile. It adds that little bit of dimension you need on a card sometimes. Michele has just taken a big delivery and you can see all the colours available here. She has also taken delivery of the WOJ Henry Mouse range but be quick, they're selling fast!!

Well I'm sat here at work about to tackle a huge pile of registers and sicknotes (groan) so I'd better get to it......... catch you later my friends ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
