Hello,  so as I sit here with another  super windy day, I decide  it is way  past time  to get busy with the making of  some cards...

 Life  has been  busy, even a bit stressed some days,  so maybe that is why I reached  for the  "distressed" look in my  mind...

The first card of today,  was made  to  fit  a challenge  for the amazing group   that call them selves  "the TeaPot Tuesdays Ladies  " or better known as " the  teapotters " 
Our destination this week  was a  gentleman that just had  surgery and liked to play with tools  so  here is  my thought on that ...  
I used Sahara sand as my base, Some Su  dp , 2 styles  and tools from SU Power Up set  along with my collage  alphabet by SU ...

  Next is  a card  made for a super guy and  friend. He is   going through some renovations in preparing to sell his home. So while I had this stamp set out I created another card... 
I used soft suede as my base  some of the same DP  and  it is  a card  that opens in the center of this front...and  a card on  a the card is 4 x 5 1/4  on the  soft suede base of  4 1/4 c 5 1/2
(  Sorry bit I cannot think of the name of this style card... Gate fold , maybe  )
 the power tool is only attatched  to  the right side so it can open... 

Is  this a Gate Fold ???

The third card  was made for one of my brothers,  just to say hello, and that I love him...I added  this little cross, sorry I cannot remember  who makes it... and  another  stamp  of inspirational sentiment inside, it was by Inkadinkadoo .
 I used a corresponding scrap of DP,  and again used  soft suede as my base...

So  since  these are not totally "distressed"  I guess I was not totally
 " stressed"   : ) 

Thanks for stopping by,  and I will be looking for you all real soon... 
Enjoy each day...
