"Just Because" cricut cartridge Birthday card

On a boat is a good place to be in this heat! My glasses fog up when I walk out the door....the humidity up here is crazy!

 To escape the heat I've been staying inside. I've been enjoying cutting on my cricut in my craft cave this weekend..nice and cold in cold I need a sweatshirt on!

I borrowed my friends "Just Because" cartridge and have been happily cutting cute little sailboats and ducks...and well... all kinds of fun stuff.

The card I am sharing today is made with the little sailboats....and I love the saying, "You float my boat." I tied "Happy Birthday" tags on the rope.

Stay cool!

This is such a cute sailboat card, Laurie! Love the details - especially the rope. You are doing well with your borrowed Just Because cartridge! And yes, staying inside crafting is a fine use of hot weather time - LOL! I like the updated look to your blog, too. :) ~Jen
