FWF and PDCC


Happy Friday everyone!! Wow, I am READY for the weekend! This week has been so much harder than I anticipated. The kids and I are having a really hard time with all the changes that are going on. But tomorrow is the weekend and we'll get to start fresh so let's hope it gets better!

Here's my card for this week. I whipped it up yesterday during nap time. I used the color challenge over at the Play Date Cafe. They were NOT kidding when they call it a challenge! I went through ALL my patterned paper until I could find something that worked and this is what I came up with. I paired the colors with this week's Unity Hip Hop sketch. I really love clean sketches! Even if you don't make a CAS card, it's a great place to start. You can always add embellishments. Also, I want to note that the twine here is white and pink. I'm pretty much addicted to baker's twine right now.

Here's the swatch from the Play Date Cafe if you want to play along. This challenge literally blew my mind, I had no idea how I was going to use all those colors. But I managed. Yay me!

Ok, be sure to check out the Unity blog for everyone participating in today's hop! Have a great weekend everyone!
