Just Because...

Hey there! I am trying to post at lightning speed right now!!! :D I need to be packing so we can head out of town when my hubby gets home, but I had to take pics of my latest project and post them before I left. I had to take the pics in the sunlight, so since I was up working late last night I had to wait till I came home from work to take the pics. I left to work while it was still dark outside so I couldn't do it this morning. I can never take good pics at night. Don't know what it is, but it urks me! LOL!!!

Anywho, here is my latest project. Michelle over at Mish Mash has been doing these killer stationary sets and I just thought this would be the perfect thing to finish my friends gift. I made fourr cards and lined 4 envies. The cards are 5 1/4" x 7 and I just cut the inside a 1/4" shorter. I used Vineyard Berry CS as my base and White Daisy CS for the inside. For the top banner I used the Sugared Paper from Basic Grey...love it! The width of that is 1 1/2". I used my circle scalloped punch and punched out 4 Baby Pink circles. I then punched out 4 cirlces of Autumn Terracota Textured CS and then I punched four smaller White Daisy cirlces. I used my It's a Party Stamp set for the dotted green cirlces and stamped it it Garden Green and my Say It With Style stamp set for "Just Because". This came together pretty fast. Once I was done with all the cards I lined the 4 envies with Sugared paper from Basic Grey. I didn't have a cute box to put it in, so I thought I would tie it all together with some cute Chocolate & Polka Dot Ribbon. I think it's cute, now all I have to do is make a cute bag to put it in.

Well I hope you all have a great weekend!!! I won't have anything else to post till Monday. I plan on taking some things to work on while we are away this weekend. Thanks for stopping by and take care! :D


I wanted to show you a close up pic of the top part of the card! I thought these colors whet together nicely. Well I hope she likes it as much as I do, I will definately be making more of these!!! :D

You've been making some fabulous cards!! I love how they are simple yet gorgeous ^_~ I can't remember if I ever thanked you on your blog for the card and the goodies you sent a couple weeks ago. I've just barely gotten around to sending out thank yous and realized that. Plus I think I've lost your address, lol. If you could email me your addy when you get a chance, so I can send you your thank you I'd appreciate it! Thanks again hun, your message inside helped me feel so much better! And have fun on your trip ^_~
