ABC Challenges - D for Distressing

Good afternoon. I hope you're all having a wonderful day and the weather is better than here, lol. As one of my Facebook friends has just said "Tá an gheimhridh anuas orainn... :( "
 - which means "The winter is upon us". I will admit that it's my favourite season though :)

On ABC Challenges this week our theme is D for Distressing and we are being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp

 I recently found the instructions for making a Desktop Calendar Box and love this kind of project so I really enjoyed making it.

I used a beautiful WOJ image called Dreamy Willow with Flowers. It's been a while since I got to use a Whiff of Joy image and thought I was using Shy Willow, lol, but they are both fabulous to colour. 

Some yummy peanut butter cups hidden inside....

I'm also entering this into a few challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - Move It (pull out drawer)
Whiff of Joy - Layers 
Wild Orchid Challenges - Pearls & Pins
Sir Stampalot - All Distressed
Stamp Man Challenges - Distressed

Papers - Basic Grey : Green @ Heart
Box base - White Cardstock
Flowers & Pearl Spray - Wild Orchid Crafts
Tools - MS Doily Punch, trimmers, scoring board, Copic sketch markers
Button & Ribbon from my stash. 

Thanks for dropping in today, I really appreciate your visit :)
