Just because!

It's a long time since I made a  "Just because" piece/card, lately I only have time for my Sassy Cheryl weekly challenge and my workshop cards/projects, so I had a little play and this is what I came up with... this lady stamp is now familiar to a lot of you as it is one of my old favourites ( I really should use my rubber stamps more :) btw that is not a smudge around the butterfly it is script !!! as if I would leave an ink smudge lol ...I coloured the image with promarkers and made the pin flower and background with pages from an old book and inked to distress, I bought the hanger years ago, cant remember where now, but it has been in my stash about ten years :)I must make time to play with all my stash more often!

A Just because card!

 Had a little bit of time to play today so made a card just because " I wanted to" not because "I had to" doesn't happen very often lately and this is what I came up with because " I wanted to" not because "I had to" doesn't happen very often lately and this is what I came up with! I must say I really enjoyed making it so watch this space :)

I love miniature items so last week I challenged myself to make my own miniature door, it was nice to move away from paper and card, so out came the hand  saw and I jumped right in, I have to practice a lot to get the straight edges but I was happy with my first attempt, I sawed, sanded and sanded and sanded again until I was happy with the smooth edges, then varnished, painted and embellished, I don't have any small children in my house so took inspiration from my friend Bab's and made up a little scene in a deep frame, as anyone familiar with my card making will know I love to make up scenes with trees, picket fences, grass and anything really that makes up a little story, I always loved doing that as a child, so I am in my second childhood now :) I made a milk bottle and mushrooms with fimo after I took the large photo, you can see the finished frame below, I think I feel another addiction coming on :) I have a few more cut out ready to paint, and I love the way each one is slightly different in size and shape because they are 100% hand made.

Fancy a cuppa !!!!

I bought the chair and made the table :)
