Get Your Kicks...Yep! You Guessed it!



Over at The Play Date Cafe this week,
we have a wonderful new sponsor and our
design team got to play with whatever stamp set we wanted!
So I chose this set from Artistic Outpost...


...and here are the colors for this week....


...brought to us by the lovely Sarah.

And here is my card...


Growing up in Illinois, I have had opportunity to
travel the famed 'Route 66', but not for very far...
Even my British husband is intrigued by the idea
of taking a little 'road trip'  : )

The design team over in The Cafe have some
really fabulous inspirational pieces to inspire you
so before you 'head on down the road', make sure
you stop by The Play Date Cafe for an
inspirational 'pick me up'!

A big thanks goes out to


for providing our team with fabulous stamps
to help inspire you to play.
Please visit the AO website and check out
all of their 'vintage-style' images.

See you soon....

Another great card, Julie. Artistic Outpost stamps are great for making men's cards aren't they. I love the ones of the mills.

Super fab card, I think most of us put flowers or some kind of earthy design on our green/purple cards but your card is so out of the box! What a creative way to interpret the color inspiration picture!
