  20. Hi Sandra! I can't encourage you enough to try the Distress Markers, I've been playing a bit more with them and genuinely think they're one of the most exciting things I've bought for a while.

    I just added a link to my post - if you want a laugh do go and look at Kimbo's snippets card she posted and linked today, sooooo funny :)
