3 (plus more) challenges

I'd been planning a project that combines 3 certain challenges and I've noticed around the blog world that it's been a popular idea with lots of people.

Sunday Stamper #157 - Stash that makes you happy
Simon Says Stamp And Show - A Tag
Grungy Monday #10 - Distress Inks
I've used one of my favourite Distress Ink techniques (details of which I am sure you will find over at Sir Tim's blog).  I've also done all the stamping in Distress Ink too using a combination of Brushed Corduroy, Walnut stain and Broken China.  There are some stamps from Making Memories, PaperArtsy and Pink Paislee.
The Cuttlebug embossing folder is also a favourite as it means I can make as much dress makers tape as I want!  The little heart chipboard is an Amy Butler for K&Co design and of course there are lots of butterflies fluttering around to make me happy.

I'd also like to enter my tag at Crafts And Me #38 - Stamp Something.  As well as bringing to your attention a new challenge that has just launched with an 'Anything goes' theme - Deep Ocean.
