A "Just Because" Card

Happy Saturday, everyone! I had planned to post this card yesterday, but the girls were off school, and one of them had a friend over all day, and, well... it just didn't get posted. :)

So here it is. It's a "just because" kinda card. Sometimes I'll leave the sentiment off, so I have a card ready for birthday, hello, thinking of you -- whatever I might need.  My girls always want to be sending a card to someone for something, so now I have one ready. The sweet image is Fancy Dress Marci from La-La Land Crafts. The paper is from the Stella & Rose Hazel pack from My Mind's Eye.

I colored with Copic markers, and I embellished with some Natural Burlap String and a Webster's Pages Scalloped Sparkler.

So, what are your weekend plans? We'll be painting the bathroom today. It's VERY wet and rainy here, so indoor activities are a good way to go. ;) Whatever you have on your calendar today, I hope your day is a great one!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I think it's darling, Christina, and sometimes they just look great without the sentiment. I can't imagine what could make this any cuter!
