Just Because

Hi all! I hope you all have spring by you. I think it has been missing in action here. We actually had to turn our heat back on — far too cold for my liking in May. There is hope though — today it is warmer and sunny — far better than the dreary cold & rain of yesterday!

Today I have a simple, rather manly Just Because card. This week’s Tuesday Morning Sketch is a great simple sketch and worked perfectly for my card.

This was one of my first There She Goes sets — Special Delivery. This little mailbox is so fun with the interchangeable contents. I chose to do hearts, but to go with a far less traditional red/pink color combo since I wanted to keep this geared toward a man. The colors are Basic Grey and Ocean Tides from PTI. The Ocean Tides really seems to change with the light you are looking at it in. A piece of Latte patterned paper from DCWV paired up perfectly with these two colors. The mid panel is embossed with Houndstooth and a few Dew Drops for embellies. Very quick & simple! Inside I stamped a line of the larger single heart at the bottom and added in a bit of the DCWV paper at the top.
