Just Because!!

Just Because... I wanted to make this card this way!!?? Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge this week is old olive, certainly celery, chocolate chip, real red, and whisper white. Inspiration pic was Xmassy but, I really wanted to use these Waltzingmouse stamps that coordinate with nestabilites and as the card progressed- this is the Verve sentment I used from one of my fav sets Great Friend. Tried different embossing folders on the red panel but, didn't like anything so I left it plain. Used the MFT large scallop die-namic on some twill and added a chocolate chip ribbon that was folded and sewn. Old Olive panel is embossed with a Quikkutz embossing folder that I absolutely adore!! Haven't perfected the twill and dies.... Used Karen's Sweet Sunday sketch.

The sketch and colors...


Hope you are having wonderful holidays!! After my "glitch" with the thieves- we are starting to get straightened out-- have caught up with Xmas with on-line shopping {totally addicted but, I was before- ask my DH about the deliveries-no, don't ask!! LOL!!} and did some shopping yesterday with my youngest daughter!! She turned "18" yesterday and wanted to spend the day with her mom??? Went for haircuts, lunch, and shopping!! She gave me a "high five" that it was a wonderful day-- made my heart sing!!

Great the stamps that match the Nesties! Glad you are getting back on track after the robbery. I love going on outings with my daughter (age 22)...don't get to do it often with our work schedules, but treasure the times when we do go out together.

Great job with the colours and the sketch, Vickie :) Love that die shape and your ribbon is great.

SO glad to hear things are settling down after the "glitch" and hopefully the deliveries occur when hubby isn't at home LOL! Loved the heart warming story about your daughter. Precious times they are :)

Wonderful job with both challenges! I love the clean space at the top and all of the different textures on the bottom. Thanks for joining us at the Curtain Call!
