Sandy Greetings

 Today’s challenge at 365 Cards was to try a new technique – Sanding. We needed to give the card a distresses look by sanding it. Like many others, I pulled out my Coredinations cardstock and ran it through my Cuttlebug. I choose to use my Holly folder. After sanding the image, I used the ticket corner punch on the corners. I decided to keep the card simple so I added two prima flowers, a strip of organza ribbon, a few Robins Nest dew drops and the sentiment.


This card didn’t take more than 15 minutes to complete and I am truly grateful. We had a long day traveling out of town to attend a gun show. I have never been to one before and it was an eye opening experience. It was a successful trip as I was able to find a gun that I liked, a 32 Kel-tec semi-automatic.  We traded in one that I didn’t like at all. I was able to buy a second clip, ammo and a small case that fits in my pocket and conceals it nicely all within our budget. The gun is so small that your hand covers the whole thing. Now when I travel out of town alone for work, I will feel a bit more comfortable.

I have tried a different look for the image upload. It is called reflection….what do you think?
