{In No Particular Order} The Play Date Cafe

I had so much fun putting the card together for this week's...

I absolutely LoVe the color story that our 

I also had a ball playing with the image provided by
this week's sponsor....

I stamped the image of 'Ian' and paper-pieced
his wardrobe using DP from Nikki Sivils and DCWV.
I am not a 'colorer' at heart, but I do love to pull out
my chalks and this was the perfect opportunity
to give 'Ian' a complexion and a lovely head of hair!

I can't wait to see the entries for this week's challenge!
