Creative Genius!

Ha Ha, this weeks challenge over at Mo's is entitled "Distressing" - now, what does that mean to you?

You've lost your mobile phone
Blogger is not working!!!
Mother-in-law visiting for the weekend
Tearing paper & Tim Holtz inks

Whatever distressing means to you I hope this card will do the opposite and simply make you smile :)

Come on admit it, is this something either you or a sibling did when you were young!!  Or maybe you have a little "darling" who decided to copy Ty Pennington and redecorate your wall!

More to the point who knows how to remove the crayon masterpieces?  I guess we'd better call those guys at Crayola if all else fails LOL!

I coloured this adorable little chap in Copics with Caran D'Ache Pencil highlights.  Ooh and the word art, I did all by myself, well, with the help of Photoshop Elements.  Then I just added some gorgeous Jumping Jack paper by Cosmo Cricket, ribbon & some wonky stitching on my sewing machine.  Oops nearly forgot, Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Old Paper) to finish!

This time, I decided to decorate the inside of the card too, adding that personal touch, yes I am responsible for the scribbles!!!

Good luck to everyone entering this weeks challenge.
