Playing in Paradise Challenge #35

Hello everyone! Merlie here! It's Friday and that means it's time for another fabulous Playing in Paradise Challenge here at Scrapbooker's Paradise! We hope that you will find time to play with us.
Before we introduce this week's challenge, we want to say a fond farewell and a big thank you to Ally Cope, who has been with the Challenge team since it's inception early this year.  We we will miss Ally's amazing creations each week, but we wish her all the best in her latest endeavors.   

While parting is such sweet sorrow, meeting new friends is all about fun!  Please meet the newest addition to our team,  Kasia Curry!   We know she will inpire us all with her delightfully clean and classy style. 

Hi! My name is Kasia and I LOVE to craft! Papercrafting, sewing, DIY, embroidery, hopefully knitting and crocheting one day. I remember being about 13 and helping my mom make Christmas cards, we actually heat embossed with our iron! My mom had picked it up again in 2006 and when she passed away in 2007 I decided I would put her stuff to good use. I have been into card making ever since. I find myself drawn to a Clean and Simple (CAS) style. Mostly because I tend to want to take everything off when I try to put more than 3 or 4 things on my cards. This is also why I haven't ventured very far into scrapbooking!!
When I'm not crafting, I work full time in the ICU as a Respiratory Therapist, and can also be found on the track playing Roller Derby.  I am really looking forward to my time here on the Scrapbooker's Paradise design team.
Welcome Kasia!  We are thrilled to have you!
This week's challenge is all about DISTRESSING! You can do dry distressing, wet distressing and of course my favorite ....ink distressing. I personally love Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads which you will find at Scrapbooker's Paradise on line and in store. And have you seen the new limited edition set?? Ripe Persimmons, Gathered Twigs and Seedless Preserves. I'm gonna have to get them before they're all gone.

This week you are playing for the chance to win a great prize from Scrapbooker's Paradise....
Imaginice Geek is Chic line: 2 stamps, canvas sticker and sticker stacker!
 My card for you this week is by Mo Manning.  I used Mustard Seed and Shabby Shutter distress ink pads by Rangers (Tim Holtz) my sentiment is computer generated, which I heard my youngest daughter mumbled while she was in her favorite spot the other day. Yikes! she's only 6 with an attitude of a 16 year old.


Here's what our amazing challenge designers have done with this week's distressing challenge as their inspiration...






So what will you come up with this week's challenge??
