You are Sweet....Face Day w/PKS {Post #2}

~If you are looking for the My Creative Time Day 1 of sneaks please click the picture~

Good Morning Everyone!!!
Hope you all had a GREAT weekend!!!
The weather was beautiful here, perfect for my son Parker's travel baseball tournament as well as my son Casey's travel soccer tournament! Whew...what a busy weekend but non the less AWESOME! Both boys played their hearts out!

Here are some pictures from the weekend......

Parker catching~ the position he LOVES to play the most! And to brag just a little....he is VERY good at it too :)
He is so cute when he is at bat :) LOVE that little slugger!!! He even pitched too. Here is he warming up with the hubs!

And here is my oldest...Casey had the Lancaster Soccer Tournament Fri~Sun. I was able to catch a few pictures from the game on Sat. He is the goalie so he is pictured in the center :)
 Such a fun bunch of kids!

And here he is in net. They have one more game on Tuesday and then the season is over for them. It sure went by FAST!!

Now onto my projects....
It is my turn to share a "Face Day" project over on the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog 

I made a set of "Just Because" cards and I have to say I think they are super cute :)
I wanted to keep the cards on the simple side to really showcase the adorable PK faces and sentiment.  I used pattern paper from Lawn Fawn as by color theme...and I just realized while writing up my post that these fit into the current PKS Color 
Challenge that is going on right now (there is also a sketch that you could use as well....come on everyone~I would LOVE to see you play along!)

Here is how I made these.....
 I started my cards out using a Kraft Cardstock base and layering both white cardstock and pattern paper. For a little more detail, I did run the mats through my sewing machine for a nice even border.
Next I used my Silhouette and a Miss Kate Cuttable file~Cute Popsicles to cut out 4 different Popsicles in different colors. I hid the face that comes with the file so I could add my PKS face.
Once all the layers were cut and assembled, I stamped on my PK face using one of my favorite sets~ PK~1300 Sweet & Innocent Face Assortment.

I just love adding a cute PKS face to my projects! I highlighted the face a bit by adding chalk to their cheeks and some white gel pen freckles. I also colored in their eyes with my white gel pen as well.
Once all the faces were stamped, I added some matching Trendy Twine in Twisted Lime, Blue Berry, Strawberry Cupcake and Lemon Tart to each of the Popsicle sticks. Popped them up onto my card fronts and my cards were completed.
One thing I forgot to mention...before adding my Popsicles, I did stamp my sentiment. This one comes from the PK 1398~Circus Treats set.

So there is my Face Day project for today. I really hope you have enjoyed these cuties!
