Clearly Inspired Challenge #29 -- Distressing --

OHMYGoodness! It is June already! Today is my son's LAST DAY of First grade. It is so bittersweet to see him grow up and move up to second grade .. Mrs Kyle has been such a wonderful first grade teacher, she made a lasting inpression on my son, and me.

{Sniff, Sniff} Ok, I am better... Today is the first Friday of June, and that means it is time for another edition of the Clearly Inspired Challenge over at Lori's blog, Clearlyistamp. This time, (my BFF) Cassie, has challenged us to DISTRESS our cards. Now there is a technique I havent done in a LONG time!

As I was thinking of what to make, I was reminded that one of my son's best friends is having a birthday soon, and so, I turned this into a two fold project, a distressed birthday card! Not too grown-up,(note the cowboy paper) the birthday boy is "only" turning 11. I am sure his mom doesnt think 11 is so "only" !! haha

Now, lets see what YOU come up with! You have TWO weeks to play! 


Now onto the details of the Clearly Inspired Challenge!

Challenges are on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month, and you'll have 2 weeks to finish each challenge.

-Challenges can use any stamps or digis from any company
-Only one entry per person per challenge
-Prizes will be given away after both challenges for the month. The number of prizes is determined by the number of participants for the month. For every 20 entries there will be a $10 gift certificate for stamps or digis up for grabs. (For example if over the entire month there were a total of 60 participants in both challenges, there will be 3 $10 gift certificates and 3 of the featured digital images to give away.)
-We will also be giving away the featured digi for every 20 entries!
