Exciting Cafe News!!!

Sunday, July 22, 2012


It's time to reveal my big news!!!

I am sooo EXCITED to be a new designer with The Play Date Cafe!

And I must say Wowza...this team is oh soooo
very talented. I am honored to be among such a group of ladies!!!
And to celebrate, I'm playing along with this week's Color Story.
{Isn't it gorgeous?}



I love to give Starbucks & Target gift cards and made a Gift Card Holder using the beautiful colors.

Here are the details of my project:
The coral fabric flower is from Prima.  
I used several soft yellow elements including the Stampin' Up birdie sticker.
A mint colored sentiment from Recollections
A tulip mini butterfly using my Martha Stewart Crafts punch
And a mini kraft bag and clothespin from Canvas Corp.

More NEW DESIGNERS will be revealed this week, so be sure to stay tuned to the PDCC Blog each day to see who they will be.

I can finally share that the VERY TALENTED Veronica Zalis, Lynn Adams, Anya SchrierJocelyn Olson, Amy Tsuruta, Connie Mercer, and Jackie Rockwell are new to the design team as well. Congrats ladies! Be sure to leave them some love!!!

These are exciting times for sure!
Can you see me SMILING all the way from Texas?
