Some Stamping Time

Time to play...
 Weekends tend to be rather busy with all kinds of activities, but I still love to find crafting time.  I so wanted to play with this wonderful The Play Date Cafe color combination.  It ended up being a simple bit of this and that.
 All of the really dark colored pieces are a navy blue, they look rather black in the photos.  The sentiment is a stamp by Ali Edwards and the other stamps are by Hero Arts.
 Here is The Play Date Cafe combo.
 And, I want to share my Card Positioning Systems card for this week. Once in a while a sketch becomes an instant favorite and this is one of those.
 I was sitting, playing with a set of stamps from Wplus9 Designs and this was one of the little combinations I came up with.  Cutting it in a circle and using it for this sketch was just right. I accented it with a bit of Liquid Pearls and the white cardstock is embossed with my Cuttlebug.
 Here is that great CPS sketch, you should try it.
And for a couple photos...
 Part of our busy weekend included being at one of our grandson's football game. He has to be the best looking football player ever.  I would say he is cute but don't tell him that!  He might be getting too old for those words.
 He is #42, right there in front. I loved how seriously he took his responsibilities as being part of the team.
 Here is one action shot.
This big smile has to do with a great game, 30-1, his teams favor!
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Both cards are gorgeous, Linda! The background stamping on the first card is very cool--it's so subtle. Fab design on the first card. I love the stamping and embossing on the second card! Thanks for playing along with us at The Play Date Cafe!
