Distressing news...

Hee, hee, no news, just distressing! That's the challenge this week at Fab N Funky! I went with a fun, bright card, and then I toned it down a bit by crumpling and inking my paper. Since it's definitely a 'boy' card, I thought the whole 'grubby' look would go well. (I have 2 boys and if they're not grubby, they're sticky, snotty or just plain dirty! Sigh.)

The papers are a mix of SU, Close to My Heart and My Mind's Eye - it was kind of fun to just throw patterns together! The stamp is an oldie, one from October Afternoon that I just had to have!

I do have a second card for you today, this one is courtesy of my youngest monster, Graham. He's part of the brand spanking new Craft Your Passion Kid's challenge blog - if you've got crafty kids, be sure to check it out! (Oh, and if you can't tell, Graham loves dogs!)
