Just Because


I'm feeling so good right now house is clean, laundry is drying, and dinner is already planned and it's only 9:01am! I'm even showered!! I'm at least showered because I'm leaving in a bit to volunteer in my son's classroom. Anyway I checked out Julee's Mojo challenge and actually had it done last night however I really dislike taking picture's at night. I took the picture this morning and it's super dark background cause it's sitting on my black craft table. Oh well...I used Julee's Mojo64 sketch challenge and incorporated Color Throwdown's CTD22 color challenge. I used Basic Black, Regal Rose, & Certainly Celery. I keep trying to use up this background paper because I have bits and pieces in my scrap drawer and wouldn't you know this fit perfect for the card! I used the sentiment "just because" because I love giving. Even if it's not your birthday. This is the time of year people should really give back to the community or their friends who help them a lot. I have a big heart with a small pocket book so I can't always afford to get gifts but I love to make a stack of cards or alter some 3-d item to lift a friends spirits if they are down and out. I hope you all are able to relax during these next few weeks before Christmas arrives.

Felicia, I love this card! I love black & white polka dots, and it is perfect for this image! Thanks for playing the CTD! I had to laugh that you said you had all your chores & were showered by 9 am! SOMETIMES that happens to me!! :D

The card is too cute and what fun that your son used your craft stuff to decorate his tree!

Loved the 'big heart...small purse' comment...I feel the same way.

Happy Holidays!
