Just Because… Friday, Sep 20 2013 

Did you ever have one of those days where creativity was on overload and you just didn’t know where to start…. I’ve been so busy lately and have so many creations in my head all at once I thought my head would burst. It’s times like this where my beloved Tilda’s and gorgeous laces come to the rescue. I always find it relaxing to create with these, so today I have this pretty card, just because:
