anything goes challenge distressing

Today we are "doing" distressing and this poor card is distressed within an inch of its life. The background card is from the"linen closet" and I used Tim's distressing tool round the edge and inked with frayed burlap and then I covered a piece of smooth card with distress ink then I have screwed it up and torn it.
Here's a closer image then Ive stamped it up with a mixture of Tim Holtz and paper artsy stamps
The moth is rubbed over with some gold stuff (that's a technical term! lol)and layered up just slightly off so you can see the underneath To finish off I added some recycled metal bits I took off an old piece of work never waste anything, I also pinch (with permission) packing from wine boxes at work I'm like"oh oh don't throw that I'll have it" to use with my beloved sizzix lol I think they think I'm like a nutcase who collects weired rubbish. I have enjoyed doing this its a change and we all need a change now and again

my little poseur or is it poser xx

A scrapbook page of Holly being her usual self I.E........ A poseur!! this is done with pink bazzil under black bazzil which has been punched up both sides and added lace at the bottom then I tore some 7gypsies patterned paper and threaded organza ribbon through with a primarni pearl (that's a primark pearl bracelet pulled apart and the bits used)
I then stamped down the right hand side and sizzixed some different flowers and layered them up not sure about the title it looks spelt wrong but I checked it on word but never mind I cant spell as some of you know you know nudge nudge as I say it all part and parcel of my charm do you know what I'm taking that off it doesn't look right so which way is right POSER or POSEUR lol can we have a vote please xx

this made me laugh

I wore a red jumper yesterday now I do know it has seen better days but how about this, at lunch time I said to my mum oh I think I'll have to throw this jumper its seen better days and its shrunk up a bit ( not that Ive got bigger never) as quick as a flash she comes back with "mmmmmmmmmmmm" she says "I wonder if I boil it up, I could then use it to make some felt flower broaches" now is that a true crafter I thought she was going to whip it off my back there and then I just laughed. Always thinking, always thinking, thats my mother, watch this space lol
