F4A141...Distress before you Stress...(11/2/2012)

We are at the start of November...and that means the Fall/Winter Holiday season is well underway. It's also that time we all get a little more stressed and short and busy!

Today's challenge is to
"Distress before you Stress."
Take out any frustrations on your papers, chipboard, or ribbons.

Not to add to your stress...but you have one more week for the HYCCT challenge submissions! Go the extra mile and figure out how to make this challenge card count for one of this year's HYCCT challenges! Be sure to send it in to the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center as well.

Uploading: Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!

Need help linking a card? Follow these instructions!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Got to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.
Youíre done!

I don't distress my cards very much, but I gave it a shot -- I have been stressed lately! (My unemployed daughter is moving back home. That's enough to stress anyone out.) Here it is:

Nearly every time I distress a card, it ends up with a more masculine feel. No exception here.

Not my usual style so I did a window frame in the decorating style of distressed paint effects:

I've been off on vacation all week (half term school holidays over here in the UK) and I've been de-stressing all week and had so much fun crafting every day!

Here's my Sketchie without her pen card for this challenge.

F4A141, IC361 Reindeer Friends
I did crumpled paper and dabbed ink on it before stamping my sentiment- and added a dc reindeer and a recycled greeting card penguin and snowman. Finished with a star from SU's Darling Dots, and a white sparkly star. Here's Reindeer Friends

MariLynn 11-03-2012 05:38 PM

Dawn, this was a great challenge. I took it really seriously to relieve stress. I got a little carried away and spent several hours destressing, I mean distressing!

First card in almost two months! I was using all my stash! So, yes, I distressed before I stressed! LOL Here is my card.

In fact I got a new camera, and couldn't get this uploaded for the longest time. I guess I will have to resize each time. This camera must have more pixels or something. :)

Thank you
