Just Because...

Isn't it great when you get a card in the mail "Just Because" and not for any particular reason? I was snow bound today along with a bad cold and it was the perfect opportunity to create a card...and it's been so long since I've been able to, that it was just what the doctor ordered! LOL

I wanted to use a stamp image that I hadn't inked up yet. With all the snow falling today, I decided to make it more of a spring themed card so I picked out an image from Stampin' UP's "A Flower for All Seasons" (all 4 images are adorable) along with a small greeting by Endless Creations.

The background paper is SU Lavender Lace and the rest of the paper was from a mat pack of designer paper called Emma from the Making Memories Kids collection. The white paper is watercolor paper.

Ink: Black Stazon, So Saffron, Sahara Sand, Creamy Caramel, Old Olive, Regal Rose and Lovely Lilac

I also used the scallop border punch, dimensionals and Rhinestone brads from SU, Marvy punches, and some pretty Prima flowers that I've had forever but never used. :)

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

I wanted to share this card with all of you. It was sent to me from a dear friend using a stamp I'd sent to her. I rarely see new year images and couldn't pass this one up. Deloris LOVES her Cuttlebug and has made some wonderful cards using it. You can check out some of her other Cuttlebug card creations on her blog.
Thanks Deloris! :)
