Play Date Cafe 128 - Hello

Flaming Pink, Bright Orange, and White -- the new palette for the Play Date Cafe this week!


I really like this combo, but still felt drawn to go heavy on the white.  I'm pleased with the result:


The sentiment is from Hero Arts, one of my new sets.  I recently got lots of HA goodies, including some pretty crocheted lace (great price, too!), from my mailman.  My 13 YO tells me I have "too many sentiments now".  Ha!  I beg to differ. They are quite essential.  :o)


Just HAD to add a pearl somewhere, you know.

The prize for one lucky player this week will come from the oh-so-fabulous Play Date Cafe Vault.  There's always good stuff in there.


We have a brand new member joining our Design Team soon!  The announcement will be made today at the Play Date Cafe.  Many of you will know her face and name.  She is ultra sweet and oh so talented, and we're lucky to have her aboard with us.

Come play with us this week!  I think these colors are going to inspire LOTS of you.  Can't wait to see what you've got!
