Week 2: Do You Stack Up? Challenge - Distressing

Ok I have never been so pleased to be BACK from a holiday!  We just came back from Brisbane yesterday.  We narrowly escaped being stuck in two places by severe flooding and I am SO grateful to be home, back in Karratha, despite it's high temperature of 39 degrees celcius and with Cyclone Vince heading towards us! 

It was heartbreaking being in Queensland surrounded by people who are losing so much.  Talking to people there and watching the news clips was heart wrenching.  At one point we were stuck with no way of getting back to our hotel, the only road south was closed due to flooding.  We were able to get through later when they opened the north bound side of the carriageway it was frightening to see the other side was covered in up to a metre of water and it was VERY fast flowing under the bit of road we were on.  I don't know how much longer that road remained open, we were so glad to have decided to go for it and get through before it was closed again.  We made it into Brisbane and then out early the next day before it got really bad in the city. Please say some prayers for the people in that area.

Now moving on, if you are here for the Do You Stack Up? Challenge then here we go.  This week marks the second Challenge from Do You Stack Up?  Today we are sponsored by Whoopsi Daisy


The winner will recieve two sheets of digital stamps.  They are so cute and very clear images to work with.  The design team were lucky enough to be given some stamps to play with and I chose this cute Christmas stamp of two little cuties waiting patiently to get a glimpse of Santa - too bad they fell asleep heh!? 

Our challenge this week is:
Distressing 

I have sanded and inked up the edges and on the image and the 'wallpaper', I used my finger nail to curl up the edges. 


Also got a lot of dimension going on this week!

What are you waiting for! Scoot on over to DYSU and see what the other girls have created and get crafting!
