Quixotic Challenges DT-So Distressing

Afternoon friends! Hope everyone's well today and enjoying their week-its been lovely and sunny here! Just beautiful-makes you cheer right up! As today is Wednesday that means it's time for another Quixotic Challenge and this week Simonne challenged us to Distress it! One of my favourite themes!

Elaine over at Quixotic Paperie has just had a new delivery of rubbah! Oh yes! The brand new release by Mo Manning brought to us by Stamping Bella has arrived! You're gonna want to fill your baskets ladies!

I just had to use Step Sisters for my card today-they're just too fun right? I've gone all shabby chic too-well I think I have anyways! I got my delivery this week of the new absolutely delicousTim Holtz papers-OMG-seriously the stock photos do not do this pack justice-they are my all time favourites now! You absolutely must treat yourself to some-they're so fab!

Here's a dimensional shot!

I'm going to enter this at the following challenges:

Crafty Catz-Stitching
Die Cut Dreams-make your own flowers
Sew Many Challenges-anything goes
Magical Crafts-Something for the girls
A Spoonful of Sugar-3D (layering with silicone)
Secret Crafter-Distressing
Prairie Fairy-Distressing
PileItOn-make it sweet (I think these 2 sisters are sweet)

Here's a close-up of these two little madams:~
