Happy Mail Challenge III

Sunday, November 4, 2012

My goodness the weeks are just flying by and already we are into November and the Christmas countdown is on... I'm reminded on a daily basis just how many sleeps there are until 'Santa' comes. I'm still working on my Christmas cards but hope to have them finished soon, however I was glad to give them a break and create a sample card for the Big Picture Classes - Happy Mail Challenge 3 which is all about distressing.

The third Happy Mail challenge requires you to make a card that uses some form of distressing which could be: sanding, scratching or perhaps even stomping... hmmm, I've never stomped on a card before.

I decided to create a small floral arrangement on my card and each flower and leaf has been sanded and gently scrunched. 

So if you would like to join in with all the fun at the Big Picture Classes - Happy Mail challenge III then head over to their blog HERE to find out all the details and to see where you need to pin your finished product.
