for Sandra

This is almost unheard of ... the other day I made an actual card to send to an actual person!  Mostly the cards I make are used as samples, and eventually (once the featured items retire) end up in a box through which my daughter digs each time she needs a birthday card quickly.

But this time I had a recipient in mind, made the card (based on this one - isn't it gorgeous?) and remembered to mail it!  I could have used an old sample card for her, but that just didn't seem right for the occasion.

So here you have it ... my card for Sandra.  I hope it made her happy :-)

Tips for anyone attempting this ... firstly, make sure your square punch is sharp *sigh*.  Secondly, lay all your squares out and work out exactly what you want the card front to look like - don't leave it to chance like, perhaps, might have happened here.  Lastly, have some sort of guide on hand so that you can keep the squares lined up evenly.
