Sentimental Sundays #26 - Distressing

Wow! Can you believe we are already on the 26th Sentimental Sundays challenge? We are half way through our first year. Time is really flying by. So, with out further chit chat, the new Sentimental Sundays challenge for this week is "Distressing".

I made this card for a friend's recent birthday. Daisy Doodles came out with this set shortly before his birthday and I had to get it. My friend is a BIG VW bug fan. Isn't this just the cutest image? I want to cruise around in this car. Okay may be not today, the end of October, but definitely when the weather is great.

I distressed the edges of my DP with ink and using my scissors and CTMH edge distressing tool. I typed up the sentiment in Word on my computer.

I hope you will share your "distressing" projects with us at Sentimental Sundays. Be sure to stop by and download this week's free sentiments from Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs.

Thank you for looking!
