Just Because


Hello there friends.  I hope that your week is moving right along in a good direction!  We have a fun challenge for you today!  CAS-ual Fridays is the sponsor for the current CARDS challenge.  The challenge this time is a sketch challenge.  Being a CAS girl at heart, I'll admit to at first being a bit intimidated by the shapes and the layers in the sketch below.  So...my end result is not CAS, but not super layered either. I am in love with Pool Party, Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade colors from Stampin' Up.   You can see they inspired the colors for my card!   I used the Beanstalk and Loving Thoughts set to create my card.

The Girl Friday Ink Squad all have fabulous creations to share with you too.  We thought it would be fun to do a little blog hop to make it easy and fun for you :)  Be sure to leave a comment on each of the blogs as you hop along.  One of the blogs...and it's still a mystery as to which one it will be...will have a random winner who will receive a really great prize!

If you got lost or sidetracked along the way, here is the lineup:


The prize for the sketch challenge is really awesome but you'll have to make it through to the CARDS blog to see it! Be sure to follow their instructions to include your project for your chance to win, you have until June 17th to play along.
Now off you go to see what Virginia has created for your oohing and aahing delight!
