Friday DT Round-up!

Hello again everyone!!!
We have A LOT going on around Torendi lately!
We have almost everything priced at 50% off in the store and have been getting in some amazing new goodies!

What are your plans for the weekend!?
I'll be in Tampa to celebrate my birthday!

Here is some inspiration to get your weekend going:

Here's a fun CAS card from Kelly!
Kelly is actually in Chicago checking out CHA! Be sure to follow her on twitter, Lawnfawn! This card uses the Cosmo Cricket Joyride Chipboard, which is 50% off at $2.50!

Here are some creations from Jenn:
Jenn made her card using some fun Bam Pop Stamps!

Jenn used the Torendi Rub-ons for the first altered tile! Aren't these super cute! You should definitely check out her blog for the deets! The rub-ons are also 50% off at $3 each.

Next up is the uber talented BR-T:
BR-T uses the cool "Wham!!" Chipboard from Buzz and Bloom here! It is included in the Travel Time Kit. BR-T's photog skills are AWESOME!

Last up to bat is a card that I made the other day!
I adore the Red Riding Hood postcard that came in the Modern Red Kit (my fave kit)! All I did was cut out the house image, attach the two clothespins (from the Fresh Mix Kit), and pop it up on the card with foam tape! The paper is also from the Fresh Mix Kit. The fun little banner is from the Paris in Bloom Kit. I just love using up my leftover kit contents to make fun cards! Check out the kits here!

Now, I'm off to enjoy a Rays v Yankees Baseball game, a date night movie night with the hubs, Memaw's Alaskan Fish Tacos in YBor city, Busch Gardens, and our favorite sandwich place, Brocato's!

Happy Friday Blogosphere!!!!
Any special plans for the weekend?
My husband is out of town, so I'll be crafting pretty much all day every day!
Here are some awesome projects from the Design Team to get the mojo going!

Kelly created this fun card using Torendi's Paris in Bloom Kit!
I love the nestie cut out, the cake, the paper combination, the pennant... I could go on and on!

Now we have Jenn's famous Red Ghost Feltie Card!!!!
She paired some awesome Sassafrass Lass Paper with the Red Ghost Feltie to create this fun colorful creation!

BR-T's creation just makes me smile-instantly!
I love the combination of all the elements! It reminds me of a cool retro shirt I'd find at Hot Topic! She used Bam Pop's Instant Love Camera stamp, Bots Like Us stamp set, and High Voltage paper!

Before I go, I leave you with my matching page and card set that I made using the Travel Time Kit! Isn't that postcard the best!!!!? I also used some of our washi tapes and cosmo cricket's blue line chipboard alphas!

Have a great weekend!!!

Just a friendly reminder to let you know that our challenge is ending on SUNDAY NIGHT!  If you want to play along to win some Japanese Washi Tape of your choice, please leave your links on THIS BLOG POST!!

Here is the card I made for the challenge! 

First I used pink ink to color the background of my card, then I doodled in the white cherry blossoms to match the inspiration photo.  I paper pieced the cute panda from the Torendi "A Kawaii Day" rub-ons and finished it off with E.A.D Designs "Text Talk Stickerz".

I hope you decided to play along too!
