PDC meets Girl Friday

 TGIF blogging pals!  In honor of the newest challenge on the block, I've whipped up two little cards to celebrate the first challenge for CAS-ual Fridays "text" challenge.  I've used the current Play Date Cafe colors for both the cards.

I also wanted to let you know that my birthday blog celebrations are almost done, so if you've missed the update, scroll down.  I finally sorted out my blog candy list... let's just say I've got a small 2 Peas Gift Certificate, three Hero Arts Sparkle Clear sets, a Cosmo Cricket sticker sheet & Flirt Album, a Maya Road canvas album and a PTI button die.  I will draw the winners on Sunday morning, any comment before midnight Saturday night on any post this week will go in the random draw.  Please note, only followers are eligible to win, but I appreciate all comments, so thank you for those who have stopped by to say hi.

Right, now back to the cards...




This card also uses this week's Make It Monday technique.  



First Card: PTI All Booked Up Image, PTI Mat Stack 4 die, PTI Book Print impression plate, Core'dinations red card stock, Twinery Twine, Versafine black ink, EK Success 1 3/4th inch circle punch


Second Card: PTI All Booked Up image, PTI Mat Stack 4 frame, PTI Book Print impression plate, Core'dinations card stock, Fiskars corner rounder , Brillance Rocket Red ink, Versafine black ink, EK Success 1 3/4th inch circle punch

I love these! That stamp is my favorite from All Booked Up, and I love the way you've used it with the Mat Stack 4 image and die. Great colors, too.

These are both gorgeous Erin. I need to get some of these PTI impression plates!

Gosh Erin..so much here for me to get excited about. Your cards are beautiful AND they use the best baker's twine in the world from The Twinery AND they are entries for both challenges that I work with! WOW! A trifecta for sure!
Thanks for bringing your card to The Cafe & to The Break Room over at CAS-ual Fridays!

Wow! Both are gorgeous but that first one really makes me swoon! So much texty goodness in both and I'm a bit partial to the colors too! ;D Wonderful cards for both The Play Date Cafe and CAS-ual Fridays! So happy you played at both :)
