Compendium of Curiosities week 23 - Double Distress

Hi to all my lovely friends

This is my second post for today - my bird box was scheduled so I just had to find time to enter the CoC challenge at Linda's fabulous blog at Studio L3. Her challenge has been running for two weeks and I will just be in time - again!!!!

This is my Christmas card for my DH, he doesn't look at my blog so he won't see it before he should. The photo doesn't really do it justice, it looks much better in real life.


To find out how to do the double distress turn to P.40 of Tim's book and all the instructions are there. I have used grungepaper, a snowflake embossing folder, TH rosette die, letters from TH seasonal papers, snowflake punches, crackle and glossy accents, bundled sage, antique linen and walnut stain DIs, music paper and an Anna Griffin sticker sentiment.


I shall go and see Mum this afternoon and hopefully be back later. Thankyou to all you lovely people who are still visiting me and I promise to get over and see you soon. What would I do without you all? You really are keeping me going.

Have a lovely Sunday. {brenda} xoxox

Hello, lovely Brenda! Your card is GORGEOUS, and I have no doubt it will know your husband's socks off! You aced the double distress, and created a card that's both beautiful and masculine. The rosette looks amazing!

I hope you had a nice visit with your Mum, and are enjoying a sweet Sunday evening! I get the feeling we're ALL having a hard time keeping up with our blog visits lately (I certainly am!) and I think everyone understands! :-)
