It's a Play Date with Paper Dolls!

Pin It


Happy Monday, crafty stampers ... hope your weekend was long and fabulous!

Today's 15 Minute card project was created using the color challenge from The Play Date Cafe, for the Papertrey Paper Dolls "What's Old is New" challenge. For all of the challenging deets you can visit The Play Date Cafe HERE, and the Papertrey Paper Dolls, HERE.

This card also qualifies for and has been entered into a number of other challenges. Check out "Today's Challenges" below, for a complete list.

PDCC#34 is a "Color Splash" challenge ... my favorite kind of Play Date challenge! Here's a look at the black, white, and a 'splash' of blue inspiration photo:

Striking 'splash o'color,' isn't it?

I created my black, white, and a splash of blue card using PTI's "Green Thumb" stamp set. This set is definitely OLD ... it was released in March, 2007. As a matter of fact, this set was the third stamp set released by Papertrey Ink ... soooooo, it's about as old as PTI stamp sets come!

Here's my card:

For the ginormous view of my one-layer card, clicky on the photo ... and for the short list of products I used, check out the Card Recipe, below.

Soooooooooo, the other night the DH and I were hangin' out with Sheila and her DH. At some point in the festivities, the guys we decided that we should watch some sports.

"Let's watch the NBA finals." Ken suggested.

"Naw, let's watch the World Cup." My DH countered.

"Well, I really don't care, but maybe Sheila has a preference." I added.

"So, those are the choices: soccer or basketball?" Sheila asked. "Okay, basketball. At least with basketball, something actually happens."

Thanks for spending part of your busy day with me!

~Hugs,
