The Play Date Cafe #144


It's time for another fun color challenge at the Play Date Cafe. I love the colors this week - Pink Carnation, Orange Sherbet and Lemonade. They are so pretty and summery. I made this card using Impression Obsession stamps and Copic markers. The papers are Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango from Stampin' Up. The punches are also Stampin' Up. The gems are form Michaels.

Also, we are welcoming a new designer this week at the Play Date Cafe! Please help us welcome Jen Cuthbertson. Be sure to go to her blog and leave her some love!


This weeks sponsor is Simon Says Stamp. One lucky winner will get a gift certificate from Simon Says Stamp.

Finally, I just wanted to take a minute to give a big Congratulations to my brother Bob Bowman, coach of Michael Phelps and Allison Schmitt. They all had an amazing time at the Olympics last week and we are all very proud of them.

I have been so in awe of Michael and how he has concentrated on his 'game'. He is really much smarter than just an athlete I think. He is wise. What a great job your brother has done!!!!!
