Challenge #41 - It's So Distressing

Thursday 15 October 2009
Howdy y'all! It's me, KarenB, with my first ever hosted challenge here at Charisma Cardz! First off I want to thank all of you who joined us with Sally's yummy recipe challenge last week - your work was phenomenal!!!

Are you ready for this weeks challenge????

Your challenge is: It's So Distressing!

The reason for my challenge is simple, the holidays are approaching and they prove to be quite stressful for most. I want you to pull out your distressing tools - inks, scissors, whatever you want - and rip and tear and distress those projects to "destress" yourself!!

Now, onto the yummy prize details for this weeks challenge!!!

This week we are honored to be sponsored by Christine from
All That Scraps.


Here is a little something from Christine about her company:

We offer a little of everything for one stop shopping, including cardstock, pattern paper, many stamp companies and great shipping rates. Home of C.C. Designs Rubber Stamps which is my passion, I love to see my drawings come to life on someones card or project. are the prize details generously donated by All That Scraps:


As always, our Design Team have outdone themselves! I am so super excited and impressed by what they have done with my challenge so I will stop yapping and let you check out our, "It's So Distressing" work!!!

You have until 8 p.m. (GMT) on Wednesday to get your project linked up to qualify for the prize drawing! Please post your direct link to your project on Mr. Linky rather than in the comments sections - remember, please link directly to the post with your project not the whole blog!

    This is my first time to enter a card on your site. I sure liked what I saw from the design team, very inspiring.

    never miss the chance to distress :o)) !

  1. What a lovely challenge and what lovely DT cards. I have distressed the edge of my card with a nail file and the tag is covered with alcohol inks and then embossed with Brilliance ink and a Tim Holtz distress embossing powder which was heated and then rubbed after it had cooled down – my finger still hurts now – but it gave a nice embossed feeling to it.

    Here is my card for this challenge

    Best wishes
