Distressing with 4 Crafty Chicks!!

Hello, Hello, Hello my crafting peeps! Yes we are back with challenge #6 at 4 Crafty Chicks. Are you as excited as we are? Where have the weeks been going! October is upon us and Thanksgiving in Canada is this weekend. It is a blast looking forward to Thursday's and sharing our new challenge of the week with you! Thanks to everyone who showed us some fantastic birds or chicks this week, it was awesome to go to everyones blogs! It was a blast to hold our first Crazy Egg Challenge and I can't wait to do our next one.

Our chick Leanne is challenging us to use DISTRESSING ON OUR PROJECTS! You know you always think about inking or ripping for distressing but there are other ways too like scissors and sand blocks (all 4 were used on this card). Sometimes we just use distressing without thinking about it and then when you think about it it can be a struggle (for me it was kind of like that but it worked out I think???). Here is my creation for this week!

Things have just been crazy here and my brain could not think of a layout so I went blog hopping and found this cute sketch by Julee at Mojo Monday! I think it worked perfect with the Thoughts and Prayers stamp from SU.

Love the colors for my card and they are brought to you by the Color Throwdown...thanks ladies for some fabby inspiration. Sorry the Vanilla fades into my counter tops...LOL.
This card is also being entered into Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog - punches (they are a super bunch of gals check them out). Fresh Brewed Challenges - anything goes/girly challenge. It has been a challenge blog I have wanted to join for a while now and lucky me I can this week (hop on over to see them too).

Don't forget to hop on over to check out the other chicks creations: Leanne, Lori and Melissa
We all look forward to seeing your creations and checking out your wonderful blogs! If you get a chance share some love too we appreciate comments. This week will be exciting and we hope that you will continue to join us and share your inspiration with us. Can't wait to see if there are other distressing techniques out there too learn!

Today is another beautiful Fall day and will be a busy one...but I hope you get to take sometime to craft with your favorite drink, music or a friend or all three *wink*. Have a wonderful day!!
