PDCC40

Hello, friends:}


What a great day! The Play Date Cafe is on their 40th challenge! HOOOOOOOOORAY! And thanks to all who participated in last week's challenge--116 playeres!! The lucky winner [announced on the blog today] gets $75 worth of Unity stamps!! 


This week...we have another AWESOME sponsor:: MEMORY BOX! WOWZA! What great stamps! The PDCC was lucky enough to get some of these stamps ahead of time to play with--these are beautiful! And they sent me butterfly stamps--how did they know I am in LOVE with butterflies???!! LOVE it! The winner this week will get these two butterfly stamps from MEMORY BOX. LUCKY!!!
 
Our color story this week is a "SPLASH" of green! So we ask that you use white, black, and a splash of green. What is a "SPLASH"?? Well--like 10% of your card is that color. That is what I tried to do this time! I really really LOVE these cards....but unfortunately they were made with a heavy heart. I made them for friend. She just lost her Father-in-Law. I do not like making sympathy cards...but I do have to say that these cards are AMAZING-simple and with lots of prayer/love. I just love those butterflies on transparencies! For this card, I used my MEMORY BOX butterfly stamp along with a sentiment from Unity {Encompassed Grace}. The paper is actually Basic Grey. LOVE it!
This is also a fav of mine!! It was made with regular white paper...same sentiment from Unity....the background text is from my Gina K. Designs (Vintage Backgrounds by Nina Brackett)....and the beautiful butterfly on transparency is from MEMORY BOX . Just love this card! **NOTE:: You should probably know that I tried to CASE a card by my amazing friend, Char Austin! Her card and sketch inspired this card! LOVE IT! 
That's it for me today--but be sure to stop by all the other PDCC DT memebers' blogs--I am super jealous of their talent! They are soooooooooooo crafty!!!
