Play Date Cafe #50 - It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Okay not really... With temps in the 80's in September we are having a beautiful fall!  This weeks challenge at the PDCC involves using holiday colors to go along with our beautiful stamps form Elusive Images.  The color challenge this week is Green, White and Melon.  I was lucky enough to receive the Christmas Tweetings Stamp Set to play with.  I created this:




When I saw the sweet birdhouse and wreath I knew the needed to be set out on display in a window. :)

The color inspiration photo was selected by Julie  for the Play Date Cafe challenge this week:. 



We have a fab sponsor this week at the PDCC.  Elusive Images is our sponsor and they are providing not only a prize for the winner of the PDCC but also a prize for each of the fab four winners!  Five opportunities to win!

I am also excited because my good  friend Lesley is part of the Elusive Design Team. So be sure to stop by her blog Crafty Love n Hugs and say hi!

Our special guest designer this week is Glenda Waterworth, owner of Elusive Images stop by the  Elusive Design Team blog and see what the design team created!  Stop by Glenda's blog and see the beautiful project she created for the challenge.

  4. Hi Sue, You've done our stamps proud! This card is gorgeous and I love the 'looking through a window' idea and your colouring of the sweet bird house. The embossed background is the perfect compliment too.

    I really enjoyed playing along with you and the PDCC team this week and, of course, as an Elusive Images DT member I am lucky enough to have been playing with these lovely stamps since they were launched a short while ago.

    Hugs
