Layers of Grunge.....

Ok fess up...who stole sunday???  one day it was saturday and I went on a glorious drive with my family to the beautiful copper Coast (in SA).  Spent the day in the wonderful spring sun, playing on every playground we could find. had the best day!!
then woke up the next morning having to once again toddle off to work.  had the day from hell, came home, fed and bathed everyone and promptly went to bed!!!
then woke up this morning and realised ...damn i forgot yesterday was Sunday.  maybe it was the change to daylight savings time that confused me......maybe i was in a state of euphoria still from my wonderful saturday.....in anycase sunday came and went and I missed it!!!
Missed announcing to you all that the Stamptacular Sunday challenge is for you all to use layers on your creations.  At least 5!!!  Easy Peasy for me as i LOVE layering!!!  And the prize this week is the winners choice of a single stamp from the Greeting FArm!

Now i"m also using this card to announce the October competition over at Bizzy Bec's.  this month we want to see all your grunginess on your cards. DT Member Narelle has kindly donated some gorgeous GOODIES this month..Valued At $30.. Competition is open till the end of October..Now I really struggled with this and still think i completely missed the mark...lol.  but PROMISE to do better with my next creation.  i think I'm a bit confused between distressing and grunge..there is a fine line I think.  Maybe you can show me your craetions to help me clear it up.!!!

Anywho here is my card after all of that!!


Gorgeous lace and tassel trim, roses and cherry blossoms all available from Bizzy bec's!  Spellbinders label 11 and Magnolia doo-hickey swirl are also available to order from Bizzy bec's!  And see that embossed panel.  it was created using the wonderful new Craft Concept embossing folders that Bec now has in stock!  they are so easy to use and they embossed really deeply making the iamge really pop!!
Now to make my card 'grunge' I really tried to ink up everything!!  But still think its a bit clean.....lol

Watch this space i will endeavour to do better!!!  LOL

And to finish off...dont forget to enter over at Stamptacular and also enter at Bizzy Bec's!!!.

phew.....and Happy Holiday monday!!  Even though I had to work yet again!!!  Sigh!!!

And a couple photos from my wonderful saturday!!!

Looks like you had a wonderful family day! Was laughing so hard when I read, "who stole Snday". I feel that way on a regular basis as there isn't enough time in one day let alone the whole week - lol. Gorgeous card and I so love your layout and the use of the embossing folder that you've sponged. Hugs, Maria
