It was with much sadness that I read on Thursday Morning that Just For Fun had decided to call it a day. Theirs was the first challenge I nervously entered into a year ago when I started crafting and blogging. The lovely ladies Zoe, Von, Neet and Sam became great blogging friends and their endless support and humour was invaluable and still is. they even asked me to be a guest designer which was a huge honour for me. I would like to thank these wonderful ladies for all of their help and advice over the past year and I have made some great friends here , Just for Fun will be greatly missed.
So one last challenge before they close their doors and of course I just had to take part, their theme is ” Distressed Him ” Now mine is a little of a cheat and do hope it qualifies. So here goes
I have actually taken some old tiles and bashed them about a bit, roughed up the edges, managed to break three in the process so they are definitely distressed. Crafty Individuals stamp stamped with Stazon black ink and that’s it.
I really liked the effect so made a few more, stamps by Hero arts and Stamping up. I sanded the underside and added felt and will be using them as drinks coasters. They are also completely waterproof , I gave them a good once over with a rough sponge and everything stayed where it should !
I know it was a quick make but I have very little time at my disposal at the moment. Its a holiday here in Greece and I would be normally be going to my summer house but Rosy my French Porker bulldog is in heat and having decided I want to be a grandma I have been put in charge of the breeding procedure. In other words every else one has buggered off and left me in charge of two randy dogs and Bailey the Mini Pincher ( male ) who has had the chop and is feeling decidedly left out of the proceedings !
Here is a rubbish picture of the young couple , for some reason they didn’t want to pose for the camera !!.
I am also entering my coasters into DYSU challenge who’s theme is ” Distress ” hope these count.
Do pop over and see the fabulous inspirational pieces by both JFF and DYSU as for JFF its your last chance !
Right am off into the ” fray ” again its awfully quite maybe they have both fallen asleep !
