Bee Crafty DT Card

Hello, Friends! This last week went by so fast for me! It was so crazy for me at work because I have to meet Friday's court deadline. All week, I barely had time to have my lunch, so you can imagine how busy I was. On a happier note, I was surprised by one of my law firms with a bag of goodies! It's a canvas bag of HBO movies, a t-shirt, and a cap. That really made my day when I was so swamped with cases, emails and phone calls. Seriously, I was literally buried with cases! Anyway...

Time for another Bee Crafty challenge! Our theme for the next two weeks is DISTRESSING! We would love to see what you come up with! There are so many ways to distress so surely, you have no excuse not to play along. :)

I thought of tearing first but then decided to go with a knife. Yes, you read right, a KNIFE! I used a plastic knife and went over the edges of the paper to get this distressing effect. I then inked up the edges with Cat's Eye ink. How do you like the layout of my card? Pretty cool, huh? :) I followed the sketch over Sketch and Stash. I used my new image from BEE CRAFTY of course! This is Fluffy Bunny Christmas. Just darling, right? :)

So adorable Kim!

Hey, what do you do for a living? I used to be a paralegal (and before that a legal secretary) way back in the beginning of my career.
