Just Because.....

Good Morning!!
Today is another challenge over at
Just Magnolia and the lovey
Dawny has created another beautiful sketch
for us.  I picked out this paper for a
specific birthday card and somewhere
along the lines forgot all about that!!
LOL I really needed one like this for my
daughter's teacher so now I will have to
make a belated birthday card!! hehe

The papers are from Kaiser Crafts, the cute Tilda is from the
Spring Kit, flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts,
the crinkled ribbon is handmade as is the background
doily thingy.  The sentiment is from Stampavie.

My image was colored again with distress
inks and twinkling h2o's and it was
given a healthy dose of Crackle Paint.

They are not my typical colors but I rather like orange
for this time of the year. I think it is the only time
I do! Otherwise I don't ever use it!

Anyways thanks so much for stopping by!!
I hope you all have a great day! I hope
to get a nap in today when
my baby gets on the bus!! LOL
My oldest was home all week sick
so now I will finally have an afternoon
alone! Well except for the dog who at times
is worse than the kids!!!

Have a great week-end!!
