Just Because Card - Create a Critter Cartridge

I made this card "Just Because", not for any challenge and not for anyone particular.  But who doesn't need cards to send just to say hello and to send a handwritten letter?  With all the technology, I am certain that receiving a spontaneous handwritten message is not only getting rare but greatly appreciated.  My challenge for myself is that tomorrow after church and maybe a nap I sit down and write three letters! 

Card Base: PTI  Dark Chocolate 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:  PTI Pure Poppy 4" X 5 1/4" layered on PTI Summer Sunrise 4 1/8" X 5 3/8"
Other Cardstock / Paper:  PTI Spring Rain and Aqua Mist, sei Desigener Paper "Penelope's Potpourri" lush lines
Ink: PTI True BLack 
Stamps: PTI (Papertrey Ink) Asian Fusion
Accessories: Cricut & Create a Critter and Forever Young (flower) Cartridges, Signo White pen, Cuttlebug & Mesh Embossing Folder, and Ribbon I bought at Dollar Tree!

  6. First I was inspired to craft beautiful cards and home decor items but now you're giving me motivation to catch up on correspondence long overdue. What shows you care better than a beautiful handmade card and a written note or letter. Thanks Laurie for not just the inspiration but the motivation!

  14. Your birdie is adorable, Laurie! Nice color choices for this card too! Good for you for *actually* writing letters--I miss them.

  15. How do you find the time with 6 children and another on the way? God Bless you. I had four and they kept me very busy. You are a gem. Congrats on your blog. Love the scalloped cardstock and so many colors. Your card is beautiful.
