Monday Challenges

I have been working on challenges this afternoon and I have 3 cards to share with you. It felt good to get a few cards stamped while my little guy was sleeping. I am trying to get myself into a better stamping routine. I've got a schedule full of challenges for each day of the week and I am going to attempt to play them all each day. I have a lot of fun doing challenges because sometimes I feel the hard work is done for me. :) LOL!

Clean & Simple Challenge 9:
The challenge was to add some sort of distressing to your card. I sponged around the little girl and also around the sentiment.
