Distressed Somethings ~ CHALLENGE

Happy Friday Everyone!

Wow, thanks for all the fabulous entries in our challenge last week! You did a great job with the cream and green color combo! And a big thanks again to Nikki from Bunny Zoe Crafts for her generous blog candy donation!

This week we have a pretty easy challenge for you, well it's easy if you like to get messy and tear up your project! We would like to see your "Distressed Somethings" for this challenge. You can make something vintage, or tear up the edges, sponge on some ink, anything that makes your project distressed with work for this challenge.

Our sponsor this week is Lacey from Stamp and Create! Lacey has been a sponsor before with her stamp line Wags n' Whiskers, but today she is joining us as Stamp and Create, her online shop!

Here's a bit of info from Lacey...
I was a stay-at-home mom for 7 years so stamping was a great way for some “Mommy time”. But after stamping for over 2 years, my hobby became my obsession…so my obsession became my dream! Now I own an on-line store!

Stamp and Create is a new on-line store carrying many popular brands of stamps, paper, and embellishments including: Wags ‘n Whiskers Rubber Stamps, High Hopes Stamps, Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps, Whiff of Joy, Stampavie, Penny Black, The Greeting Farm, Basic Grey, 7 Gypsies, Shimmerz, Nestabilities (always at least 10% off including the new released dies!!), charms and more!!

I am always adding new items to the store…so check it out at

Lacey has generously donated a $20 Gift Certificate to Stamp and Create for one lucky participant this week!

To enter for your chance to win, please provide a DIRECT link to your NEW creation, using the linky feature below, by Thursday, March 25th at 7pm EST.We will also be choosing our Top 5 Stampers and posting that info along with the winner on the evening of the 25th.

Happy stamping something distressed!

What sweet inspirations! I have never tried distressing before, but watched a craft show and the lady there used a nail file to distress some embossing so that's what I did. Thanks for givng me something new to learn!
