Play Date Cafe 134 - Sending My Love


Apricot, Canary, Latte and Rose are the new and different palette of colors this week at The Play Date Cafe.  I can't wait to see what you all create with 'em!

After hours of brainstorming an idea, this is what I came up with:


The patterned papers are from a retired (what else? seems like all I own) Stampin' Up! kit, the name of which I cannot recall.  I won them in a blog candy giveaway some time back.


The sentiment and the doily behind it are from Wplus9's Mehndi Medallions.  Love that set!  The rose sticker is from Anna Griffin.

It's obvious that last week's challenge (red with two shades of blue) was a fave among you all.  There were so many players, and the work was outstanding!  I had a really difficult time choosing winners.

We'd love to see your work 'hanging' in our gallery at The Play Date Cafe!  All the details on deadlines and the prize for "Cup of the Week" can be found HERE.  Hope to see you there.  :-)

Hi Colleen! This card is so pretty! For some reason, my first thought was peach ice cream LOL. That is my favorite homemade ice cream and perfect for summer, as is your card!
