Just Because

A Muse Addicts Weekly Challenge #61

This weeks challenge over on the A Muse Addicts Forum is called "Just Because." The challenge is to use our A Muse stamps to make a card for someone, just because. Here's the BEST PART!!! After we make the card, we need to send it to someone!! This is awesome!

I have this "thing" going on right now with Trees. Do you know why?? It's because A Muse is releasing 2 new clear sets on Monday and they are all about trees!! The A Muse Crew has been giving sneak peeks for the last couple days. I like seeing all the peeks...but HELLO!!! It's KILLIN' me to wait to see it all!! aacckk!!! What TO DO?! aaaaahhh....I know.....make a tree card with a stamp I already have. But I still want a NEW tree....I didn't want to use my old stuff! LOL

Check out what I came up with:


This tree is made from a stamp out the the clear set called Fancy Borders. I just took it and curved it around :) Yes...I know - I know - clever! And the tree trunk is just scrap piece of A Muse paper I had laying around. The cute little dog is a new release that came out with all the new A Muse Winter/Christmas stuff. It's called Winter Dog.


Well...how do you like my new stamp? I HAD to do it -- "just because." I'm sending this card off to my dad and step mom. Their little dog Suzie just had surgery on Monday. She had a problem with one of her knees...so they got it all fixed up :) She will have a cast on her leg for a few weeks - but is doing well.
