Just Because....

Hello Everyone,

So glad it's Friday!!!! Yeah!! It's been a LONG week for me and glad to see the weekend approach. I don't have a lot planned for tomorrow so I am hoping to get caught up with some challenges. I am pretty SURE I am addicted to these, LOL!  I have been so bummed because I have had a busy September and I just had to give up on a few challenges....just no time :( I am hoping October slows down a bit so I can get back to my crafting!
So for my card today, I used the Lacey Label cartridge for the base of the card. I welded and cut it at 4.75 x 5.53 using my gypsy. The base layer at 4.25 x 4.95. The cut little turtle is cut from the Live Simply Cricut Lite cartridge at 2 1/2.

The banner is from Spellbinders~Ribbon Banners, the "Just Because"stamp is from  Endless Creations and the tag with "friends" is all from SU~Tiny tags stamp set. The pattern paper is all from My Mind's Eye~Stella and  Rose 6x6 paper pack. I just love the paper in this pack. So pretty!

I am entering in the following challenges:

1.) Whimsical Wednesdays ~Challenge #23~Just Because
2.) Die Cuttin Divas ~Challenge #32~Zoo Crazy
3.)  More Than Favors ~CCCC #31~Live Simply
4.) Crafty Ribbons  ~Challenge #2~Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping~Have a great weekend!
