I know I sound like a broken record each week
but man, the time sure flies and here we are
with another fab color challenge over at
The Play Date Cafe

The suggested colors this week are...

 My photos have been so difficult to take
lately with the lighting I have, so it doesn't
look as close as I would prefer, but
what's a girl to do??!!  

I am happy to say that it also ties in with this
week's sponsor 
Market Street Stamps

It's new release week over there
and although I am on the design team,
our own designers from The Cafe also
played along with images from MSS.

I love the 'Cane' background you see here.
It's so versatile.
The floral image is from the new set
'Autumn Greetings'
I am sure those flowers were meant to be more
'autumnal' in color, 
but it just goes to show that
you can step out of the box & put your own 
spin on design work.

Now it's your turn to get in on the fun!
Head on over to The Cafe
and check out with the designers have
created to inspire you to play.

I'd love to hear from you, so if you stopped by,
let me know...if your return email is with your
comment, I'd be glad to return the chat!
