Play Date Cafe 123 - Happy Anniversary


Okay, are you ready for this bold, bright combo this week at the Play Date Cafe?  It's Teal, Electric Green, Tangerine, and Jeans.  And yes, that is a neon shade in the line up!  So glad I had some DeNami buttons on hand in those neon shades.  Whew!
Our sponsor this week is DRS Designs, and our DT was blessed with two stamps of our choice.  I chose the Polka Dot background and the gorgeous script sentiment.


I had a little trouble matching up colors with what I own, but wound up using these on the polka dots:  Not Quite Navy ink, Ocean Chalk Ink, and Poppy Parade marker.


See the orange button?  It's from DeNami.  I added some glue in the middle, and sprinkled with glitter.  (should have stopped there) When it was dry, I added a topping of Crystal Effects.  Unfortunately, it didn't dry clear, so I didn't take TOO close of a shot, 'cause it wasn't what I was going for.  

We'd love to see what you come up with for the Play Date Cafe this week!  Show us those bright creations.  :-)  

Thanks for coming by today; I love when you visit!

Another beauty! Sorry, but I'm seeing all of your posts in reverse as I am WAY behind on my hopping this week. I love your polka dot paper and those colorful buttons. I never seem to think to use my stash of buttons.
