Did you know that its a year since the lovely Frankie started the Tag It On Challenges????  To mark this very special time there is a massive BLOG CANDY up for grabs!!!  Take a look at this little lot which is being added to every day...

To be in with a chance all you have to do is to enter one of the challenges throughout May!!!!

Anyway...back to this weeks.  The theme this week is DISTRESS IT!  Well, I bashed, rubbed and swore at my tag this week so I think its pretty distressed hahahahaha!

I added some Distress Crackle to it as well.  The birdy stamps I used are part of a new set by PaperArtsy, not too sure where the border stamp was from, sorry!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone, HUGS XXX
