Play Date Cafe #52 - Let's Celebrate

This week is a special week for the PDCC.  We are celebrating our one  year anniversary! We have fun prizes, special designers and fun posts all week at the Play Date Cafe Challenge!

Our challenge this week involved selecting colors from the inspiration photo and using a Itty Bitty stamp set provided by Unity!   My stamp set from Unity was Rain or Shine.

Julie selected the lovely soft and pretty colors this week:
 I was inspired by the different pinks, yellows and peaches and decided to make it rain umbrellas.

Very simple little card with some sponging, piecing and stamping.  I love the idea of the wind pulling up all the pretty umbrellas and sending them flying across the sky.  As long is it isn't me in the downpour without  my umbrella. :)

Now onto fun stuff like prizes, sponsors, and guest designers!

This week we are lucky to have Unity and Cosmo Cricket sponsoring the PDCC with wonderful prizes!

We also have special guests designing this week as part of the celebration.  The alumni designers  from the PDCC will be playing along.

In addition to that... the Unity Design Team will be playing along this week at the PDCC. Every day there will be new projects posted where you can go and get inspiration.

And last but not least each of the PDCC team has made a card using a different Itty Bitty set and the inspiration colors. Stop by their blogs and see what they have created!

Have a lovely day! Thanks for stopping by.
