Just Because...

I decided that I would advantage of a bit of crafty time today while the weather is miserable outside, but hey, who needs an excuse to get crafty! lol :)  Seriously, things here are settling down, with the better part of the Hurricane past us now.  We only had a few downed tree branches and lots of debris in the yard to clean up, but nothing broken as far as we can see.  The power was only only off for 1 1/2 hours, so we're really fortunate.

For this card, I was inspired by the colours in a sweet top that I bought for my daughter a couple days ago at Tag.   It's the first time I've been in this store and they have some super cute outfits and decent prices.   I even used the ribbon that they had the tag attached by.   Isn't it pretty ribbon?  :)

I'm thinking that my friend Erika will be happy with this card.  It really doesn't look like something I would make, but I really quite like it.   Anyway, it's a happy card, for sure, to brighten up some one's day...just because.  :)

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)
