Ive been tagged/Basic Grey Challenge - Distressed

Good morning and yes, I have actually managed to get another card done. Thank you for all those who left comments wishing my son a happy birthday and a nice evening. We all went for the birthday meal, which is the first time we've been out altogether since Jamies birthday in May! I love these family times and wished they were more frequent. Alas my boys now prefer to spend time with their girlfriends, than their younger brother and sister and parents. Yes, I am told this is perfectly normal, but hard nevertheless. The only upside to them needing me less is that I get a little more time to craft, this is such a treasured luxury! So this is what i've been up to since I posted yesterday.

This is my entry into this weeks basic grey challenge. I used the papers from the Perhaps range, ripped and torn and the edges inked with brilliance inks. I have used the gorgeous Whiff Of Joy Image and coloured with my copics. The sentiment was printed on my computer. The beads were froms tock and the lace was from a local haberdashery shop. Small silk rose buds can't remember where they came from but paper flower prima of course. This was quite a hard challenge for me as I don't usually do the distressed look, at least not in my cards!!

I've Been TAGGED!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been tagged by the wonderful Donalda , Christine and Simone. The rules are:-

1. Link your tagger and list the rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Seven facts about me, this can't be too hard, can it?

1. I love to get my papers out and stroke them, before putting them back, unable to bring myself to cut them up!

2. My husband, children and friends are the most important things in the world to me.

3. My favourite all time film is Greece.

4. Constantly amazed at peoples behaviour and always trying to work out what makes them tick, then I might be able to find out why I am the way I am!!

5. Completely lost now without my computer and internet access!

6. When im feeling low, I hop in a bath, can do this numerous times in a day - how sad am I ?

7. I believe making someone feel special and loved is the most important gift you can give.

Wow, finally 7 facts. That was much harder than I thought!

I would like to tag the following people Jill, Zoe, Tracey, Carole, Karin, Simone, Jo.
Thank you for taking the time to visit, will speak again tonight. Hugs Linda x
