Play Date Cafe 105 - A Little Bandage

It's Thursday, so it must be time for another Play Date Cafe challenge! (I'm so glad for the 'Scheduled Post' option of Blogger.)  ;-)

Love the colors for our challenge:  cadet blue...taupe...kraft/flesh

Some of those colors reminded me of Band-Aids, so I used Wellness Wishes from Stampin' Up!.  I've never inked up this little bandage guy -- he's THE CUTEST!

Other first-aid touches:  twill, which reminds me of gauze tape....
...and Creamy Caramel cardstock, embossed with Perfect Polka Dots and reversed.  (basically, it's de-bossed)  This is a dead-ringer for a Band-Aid color.

Our sponsor this week is


Go have some fun with our colors, and you just might win the Cup of the Week prize!

Thanks for joining me today.  :)
