Play Date Cafe Challenge #47

This week Sarah selected  the great photo and inspiration colors for the Play Date Cafe challenge.


Isn't that house so sweet with it's turquoise door and trim? .

Combine the fun color combination with the wonderful stamps (Doodles & Daters) that our sponsor provided this week and you get this:


Our sponsor this week is Paperbag Studios.  I was thrilled to learn they were sponsoring our challenge. Love their stamps and was so excited to be able to use them in the challenge.

This card has a little story behind it. My friend and fellow design team member Lisa was able to come over and spend the day chatting, laughing and inking. We had a lot of fun and laughter.  During the day we both were working on our cards for this week's challenge. The images were stamped and our papers were selected.  At that point we decided to swap cards to finish the design.   The card you see above was really a collaboration of effort between me and Lisa. Thanks Lisa!  

Paperbag Studios is offering a wonderful prize to this week's winner.  A $25.00 gift certificate!
We also are lucky to have Roben-Marie, the owner and a designer of Paperbag Studios as our guest designer  this week! Make sure to stop over and see her creation at the PDCC.

The rest of the design team created some lovely projects using the same set of stamps and colors:

  22. I about died when I saw you and I were thinking the same thing with coloring/distressing the houses. I went into the PDCC group just to find something and saw your card--I knew mine would not look anything like this--because this is TOOOOOOO AMAZING! I love those clocks/schedules behind the houses...that stamping of the checks...love it all! YOU ROCK! LOVE your creativity, Sue;)
