Just Because - Lunch Box Cards

Good day to you. I hope you are having a wonderful Tuesday. Today we start a new challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas and it is all about "Just Because". You do not need a special reason to send cheer to someone so make a card, just because!
I made a few lunch box cards for my daughter. I like to send these to her about once a week just to say hello!  I started out by grabbing a few sheets of paper from the Amy Tangerine Sketchbook paper pad and creating a base for 3 different cards.
After getting the bases ready I went looking for some simple and small die cuts to play with. The three cards each ended up with something different: 2 die cuts and one with heat embossing (a new thing for me)

Love you cut from the Charmed Cartridge
The final card allowed me to play with my VersaMarker- watermark pen and embossing powders..it was my first attempt with this and I am pretty pleased.
A few touches of Stickles and some love and these three cards were all set for lunches of the future.  I hope you get a chance to be in our Just Because challenge this week at Die Cuttin' Divas
