Just A Blog Hop

This is my second post of the day. Please click here or scroll down to see my card for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Thanks!

Welcome to Just A Blog Hop! If you came from Danielle Lounds's blog, you are on the right track. If not, you will want to head over to Jami Sibley's blog to start the hop from the beginning! Your next stop is Dawn Easton's blog.

We were invited to put aside all of our stamping oriented obligations and deadlines and create something just for fun. We were to choose a challenge to play and choose either a new uninked stamp or an old favorite. Create a card and mail it to someone. What can be better to celebrate World Card Making Day? Here is my card:


I made this for my brother's second daughter. This cute image just reminds me of her. Sigh... I haven't seen her for 4 (or is it 5?) years.


I actually made three cards, one each for my brother's daughters. The other two were for the girls' birthdays and this one is a "just because" card.


I love my brother's girls dearly and being able to make cards for them makes me happy. After all, that's why we make cards, right? To make ourselves and the recipients smile. =)

Hope you will make a card just for the fun of making cards and send it to a friend or family member today, too! =) Your next stop is Dawn Easton and just in case any of the links is broken, you can alway go back to Jami's blog for the master list.

Have fun hopping and have a fabulous World Card Making Day! =)
