Go Barefoot

Hello I hope you had a very happy day how ever you celebrate.  My card today is for Cat's challenge for the release party on StampTV for Gina K Designs.  Cat's challenge is to use something that you wouldn't normally use on a card.  I scoured through the house and a couple of times in DH's garage and still was stumped.  I couldn't find anything to stimulate my creativity then I remember years ago when DS was a toddler he had a sandbox and being always the crafty one I took a small container and filled it with some of the clean sand before it went into the box.  I have had it for years (DS is almost 21), but I couldn't find it.  Late last night DS was working on his truck out in the garage and found my container of sand, yay.  Now I was faced with how I wanted to use it on a card.   This is the best I could come up with.  Not really that happy with it, but hey it is what it is.  I used two strips of ScorTape and then pressed the sand down into the tape.  I wish you a wonderful week.  I have to work some, but hopefully I will get done quickly and have the rest of the week off for our Spring Break.  I have been on a huge Kraft kick lately and will be entering this into The Spotted Chick's challenge to use Kraft on your project.   Thank you for stopping by.
