Another Momo Tuesday Challenge

I love all the challenges out there in blog world!  Sometimes you pull out older items you haven't used, or new techniques, stretch your creativity, or they just get you to sit down and take the time to make something.

This week for Momo's Tuesday Challenge it's to make "Just Because" cards and send them out.  I really needed this challenge right now.  My card stash is seriously depleted and I have a couple friends who are going through some rough times so I needed to take the time to make these cards.

This is the first card...

This was made with the Lacy Labels cartridge.  I have used this cut the most from that cartridge, but I do like most of the cuts... it's a good cartridge.  The patterned paper is older KI Memories.  I made the cut at 2.75 inches and added a little bling to the center of the flowers.

Here's the other card I made....

This card took a little more time than I'm used to.  I'm all about simple most of the time!  The cuts are from the Home Decor Solutions cartridge and I had to do my own layering.  I went back to my old Chatterbox paper stash... I will use it all up and get it outta here sooner or later!  LOL  My cuts were all from scraps.  I used blue for the bird because on the flowers of the patterned paper there is faint blue color that's not showing up very well on the picture.  Anyways...  The two branches (the brown one was just the branch, the green one had the leaves) are both cut at 3 inches.  The bird is cut at 2.5 inches and I cut it 3 times (yellow, light blue, and dark blue).  I added some small Prima flowers, a googly eye, and a random stamp I have.

I already wrote my notes to my friends, addressed and stamped the envelopes and these are going out tomorrow morning in the mail!  So thanks Momo for getting me off my butt to get these done ;)

Thanks for looking!  Have a great day!!!
