Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge #141 Distressed

Good Morning and welcome to my last post for the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge blog. I have decided to step down from this DT, just simply because of the lack of time I have at the minute. Work is very busy this half term as we come to the end of the school year and I will also (hopefully) have a busy summer too, with a big birthday to celebrate as well, so am trying to free up some of my time.

I want to just take this opportunity to say thank you to Sheryl for making me such a welcome member of her DT for the last 18 months or so (I joined in December 2013!- seems like SO long ago!). I have made such lovely crafting friends through this DT and I know I will continue to stalk them all LOL

Anyway on to my last card...this week our challenge is all about distressing so out came my distressing tool and some more shabby chic papers too for this one. We are also sponsored by Aurora Wings so I used the fabulous Grumpy Fae - love her cute little face, even if she is meant to be grumpy!
