LIM33, CFC20, PDCC99 - Thought of you today. . .

This week's CAS-ual Friday challenge is to make a mini card - This 3" sweetie uses the current Play Date Cafe Challenge colors of lavender, yellow and white.
The Less is More Challenge is "anything goes" - they are aiming for 1,000 players so be sure and link up your CAS cards!  I'm sure they will appreciate it -
Got a chance to play with my new amuse|studio heart dies.  It is always fun to turn your cardstock "inside out" - using a die makes that color visible from the outside - some of the new amuse|studio felt is featured inside the card - that stuff cuts like a dream!!  The woodgrain impression plate adds some texture to the white space.
This is just the sort of card I like to hide in my husband's work clothes.  Makes him happy when he finds it and since I have a bad memory and usually forget about putting it there it makes me happy too.
All supplies are available in my online amuse|studio shop!
