Distressing HYCCT

Good evening again friends & followers!  I have two more creations for your viewing pleasure this evening - both are distressed creations for the Hope You Can Cling To card drive over at Splitcoaststampers.  We do not get the newspaper regularly, so I tend to go through those freebies thrown in our driveway each week and cut out the sections that have text (vs. ads) and every now and then when I am in the mood I distress them up (since my hands get very messy when I do this I try to do them in batches, then when I need one - TA DA!  Nice and handy...).  The first card uses Week 3 Viva la Verve!'s sketch, designed by Maureen, and Verve's Sip & Savor and Better with You sets:
This card was completed for HYCCT1115 - P.I.N.K. - where you had to use an element that began with each of the letters in the word 'pink' - I used the color pink, ink, newspaper, and kraft cardstock (since the hostess Patricia spelled it this way I say it is fair game!).  I used to the crimper on the section of kraft down the center to resemble one of those coffee cup cozies you see in the fancy coffee stores.  In addition, this card also fulfills the requirements of the following challenges as well:

My second card was designed for Dina's Challenge over at SCS: HYCCT1103 - Real Men Wear Pink where you are supposed to take a masculine card and add pink to it.  I used My Cuppa Joe by Gina K. Designs to create this card:

In addition, this card also fulfills the requirements of the following challenges as well:

Well, that is all I have for you this evening, I hope you will come back tomorrow!  Have a good night!
