CPS #86, 2S4U and a funny pic!

It's that day again, time to show you my Card Positioning Systems card for this week and a card that I created using the 2 Sketches 4 You sketch using the supplies from the I Am A Scrapaholic's October kit plus a funny photo we took on a trip.
This weeks sponsor was Kandi Corp. You might ask what is that? I would say it is a pretty fun tool that it would pay to look into if you aren't acquainted with it. A brief description is it is a heat tool designed to attach their crystals or metal embellishments. Their decorative pieces come with a glue backing that melts when using the heat tool. It is fast, it is easy to use and while I have used the metal embellishments on paper, the beauty of this tool is it works so well on unusal surfaces like ribbon.
I used a decorative flourish that was cut with a Cuttlebug die and this provided just the perfect places to attach the metal pieces and a few orange crystals.
For the above card, I used Kazan's sketch #11 at 2 Sketches 4 You and my supplies from the I Am A Scrapaholic's October kit. The papers are from g.c.d. designs and they are wonderful! The beauty of using papers from one collection of papers is how well they go together. For my card, I used both sides of the papers because the backsides are great solid prints.
My chipboard piece was painted with a green Crackle paint. I love the look that you get with this paint.
And, I thought I would share a funny with you. There is a road we drive down in Oregon or Idaho, I forget exactly which one. We came across this road sign and just had to stop and take a picture and believe me, we wanted to drive down that road and find the house that just might have that good, old fashioned, chicken dinner ready!!!

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
