PDCC 95 and CFC 16

Playing along with challenges is fun!! I'm playing with two new (to me) challenges. The Play Date Cafe and CAS-ual Fridays

I haven't figured out how to make the picture link back to their website so here is the link

Take 5 on this post LOL - I so need blogger for dummies (If it exists if not someone needs to write it LOL)
I wanted to make a thank you gift for a sweet woman - Florence who kindly brought and delivered a yummy gourmet dessert from red adzuki beans this weekend.
I let the above challenges guide my design decisions

Color for Play Date Cafe.
 Mine are SU! colors Not Quite Navy, Wild Wasabi, and Regal Rose
Embossing for CAS-ual Fridays
I used the SU! embossing folder dots and versamark and clear embossing powder. Embossing is my favorite technique so I had to play along!

Here is a post it note holder. I haven't made one of these in AGES. I had the blue focal point in a box of do-dads that never made it to other projects - I tried but I can't find the stamp set to see what the name is - I may have borrowed it or used it at a stamp party at one time.

 I made a coordinating mini legal pad. The butterflies are my fav part of it. I attached an extra piece of chipboard (i.e. cereal box) under the mini legal pad to give it extra stability.

Here is the thank you card - yet another center step card :).....They just make such a pretty presentation! 
Thanks for stopping by!!
