Play Date Cafe 97 - To The Moon and Back



It's Color Splash Week again at The Play Date Cafe!  Yay!  I love black and white, and always look forward to what our newest 'splash' of color might be.  This week, the splash is RED. 


Our sponsor is TradeFish Designs, and they were kind enough to let our Design Team play with some fun products!  I received "Outta This World".


And here is my take on that:

I know it's not my usual, but I really like it!  I had fun coloring the moon and rocket with Copic markers.  The sentiment is one I've said to my youngest child for many years, so this stamp set just had my name written all over it.  ;-)


A couple of clouds, the moon and rocket are all set up on dimensional stickers.  The stars are stamped in Whisper White craft ink, and the sentiment is heat-embossed in white.
Go check out what the other gals have for you this week, peek at the Cup of the Week prize, and enter your own card to play with us! 

**Special Announcement**  The Play Date Cafe is acquiring a second Private Blend Designer! Please welcome Stacy Rodriguez to our team! Her official start date is September 15th, but we thought it would be fun to announce her new position today and get her ready to join the fun! Can't wait to work with you, Stacy!

Thanks so much for joining me today.  :-)

Such a cute card Colleen!! I love the red space ship and all your embossing! That's a really nice stamp set.

BTW, Irene just touched the coast of SC - I'm about 90 miles inland and we didn't even get a drop of rain. Hope you guys got through all that rain OK.

This card just shows off why you're on the team!
Not your usual style; but just as gorgeous and the idea is brilliant. And the sentiment...priceless. ( And so so is your story behind it. Love that!)
