Life is a Carnival at The Play Date Cafe


It is so great to be back with you this week for...


Jaclyn Miller, our Color Story Coordinator really found
my soft spot with this beautiful color palette.

I love when a company I represent is also the sponsor
of our challenge and this week, our entire team was
able to play with the fab stamps from....


It was a no-brainer for me to use my
favorite new set from TCM 'Life is a Carnival'


This stamp set has so many CrAzY good possibilities!
When I was a junior in high school, I did my end of the year
term paper on the 'Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus'.
I spent a day or two at the circus' national museum in Florida
and I absorbed everything I could...I was so fascinated.
So any time there is a chance to work with circus, carnival
or county fair stamps, I am thrilled!

I used my favorite inks from A Muse Studio
which gave such a subtle effect...just what I was looking for.


This is what the set looks like and 
I'll let you in on a little secret.....
This is the set you could win if you play along with
us over in The Cafe this week!

So what are you waiting for??
Pop by The Cafe and check out the amazing work from 
our design team and this week's guest using a variety
of stamps from The Craft's Meow.

Thanks for stopping by....
I hope you will leave a note to let me know you were here.
Just like you and your blog, I love to hear from those
who pay a visit and I'd love to thank you, so make sure
you leave a return email for me.
