Bugboo Stamps & Catch the Bug: 08/13/2011

In case y'all didn't know it, crow doesn't taste like chicken - It tastes like crap!

All week long the Bugaboo Stamps DT has been whining, bitching, moaning, and complaining (and I say that with nothin' but love. . .;) about how hard this week's challenge was. And I was like, "What a bunch of mamby-pamby weenie-wusses! How card can making a card in distress possibly be?"

HA! I got my considerably padded ass handed to me on a platter, and am now forced to eat that nasty little black beastie baked, fried, sauteed, roasted, braised, broiled, poached, stewed, barbequed, breaded, boiled, toasted, scrambled, flambeed, rare, medium-rare, medium, medium-well, and well-freakin'done!

Talk about being hoisted by my own petard. . .;)

The Challenge: Make a project using the technique distressing or the theme shabby chic and post a link to it on Bugaboo Stamps' challenge blog, Catch the Bug, by 08/20/2011 at 7:00 AM EST to be entered in a random drawing for three digi prize packs - seven, four, or two digital images!

Supplies: Bugaboo Stamps image, Stampin' Up! card stock, The Paper Company card stock, DCWV designer paper, Copic markers, Prismacolor markers, ??? ribbon, Kaisercraft embellishments, Memory Box embellishments.

Challenge: Sweet Sketch Wednesday #114.
