April Showers.....


April Showers....well, you know.

It's time for another fabulous color challenge from


Along with white, we're looking for projects that use
Flamingo Pink and Bright Orange.


I used a lot of clean space and paper-pieced my little
umbrella using papers from My Mind's Eye.
You are reading the sentiment correctly....
this set from The Craft's Meow comes with a lot
of stamps that feature bees for spring, but I couldn't
imagine a bee flying in the rain : )   LOL


Of course, no umbrella is girly without a little bling!

I'd love to submit this to the CARDS/Create
Spring Cards Challenge because there is
nothing like 'Spring Showers'!

We are so excited over at The Play Date Cafe
to welcome a brand new Private Blend Designer
who will be starting with us in May.

Donna Bowman received the invitation to join a
very prestigious group of PBD's who have come before
and we know she will inspire you each and every week!

Hope you'll come play with these fun and bright colors.
I'll see you in The Cafe!
