Pen Pals just because cards

What else does one do on a rainy day when hubby is downloading music and everyone else is napping!  You go and play in your scraproom right?!

That is what I did and it felt good to play.  I dug out my Pen Pals collection by Pink Paislee.  I actually wanted to play with Bella Rouge... but I need to hoard that one for a bit longer ;)


First up is this card.  I used the MFT pocket die to create this fun, just because card.  The 'smile' is cut with my Silhouette.

I was inspired by this sketch at the MFT Challenge Blog.

Next up another just because card.  I used a little 'hi' blueprints die from MFT and the envelope die is from Wplus9.

I was inspired by the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:

I am also playing along with the Curtain Call inspiration.  I was inspired by the colors.

Happy you got to play, I have a feeling that time has been in short supply for you these days. You've got someone else to distract you, for sure. :) These cards are signature Laurel style, which also means they look fabulous!
