Up, up and away

If you are here for the CRAFT blog hop, please click here.
Hi all,
Yesterday I tried on my costumes for The Sound of Music.  The nun's one was a bit scary when I looked in the mirror!  I took Daisy with me and she was a bit afraid of the 20 odd nuns wondering around!  It's the first dress rehearsal tonight, so it might be a long one.
Over at Creative Craft this fortnight, we are sponsored by the wonderful LOTV.  Our theme is distressing.  I love the distressed look, but sometimes get a bit carried away with it.  I sanded some coredinations card and distressed that and the papers with my scissors.  The papers are by papermania and Summertime Designs.  The flowers were made using a scalloped punch and the cute image is by LOTV.  I have been veering towards more monochromatic cards lately, and thought I would try brown - not a colour I often use on its own, but I quite like it.  I did have to add a yellow flame and pink icing though - I couldn't bring myself to make them brown!  Please check out  the fab projects by the rest of the DT.
See you soon.
