Play Date Cafe Challenge #45

It's Julie's turn this week to select the colors at the PDCC this week.  Look at the picture she selected this time, it looks like a barrel of fun. (Sorry I couldn't resist) Now I am thinking of the song "Roll out the Barrel" and of the Polka. :)


Love the colors. I know my red photographed a lot lighter than it is in real life. :)

I created two different cards to share. The first one is a mini card. It measures around 4" x 4". I was playing with this lovely background stamp from Hero Arts and liked how this little card came out. It will be a perfect card to house a gift card for one of the nieces. :)
 
The second card was created just for fun with a hen and her little chicks.


The stamps are from a variety of different companies and a few that I had never used. So I was very happy to pull them out and ink them up!

We have a fab guest designer this week... Sankari Wegman you can find her blog here: Sankari's Sunshine Corner.
As usual our Design Team has some great ideas that they have brewed up too!  We are also welcoming Andrea Ewen to our team. Welcome Andrea!

Hope you get a chance to join in the fun!
