Just Because

With the new year here, I decided this year to not make resolutions, but set goals and create a Bucket List for the year.  I do much better when I have a list that I can check things off as I accomplish them :)  One of my goals this year is to send out at least one card a week, just because.  Everyone loves to get a card in the mail, especially when it is for nothing more than to say hi!
So, my first card that went out was this one...

The sketch for this card came from one of my favorite challenge sites...Try Stampin' on TuesdayIf you haven't visited their site yet, add it to your Bucket List for this won't regret it!

Happy Stamping!
