Our Final New Designers Are Here!

It's the final day of The Big Reveal

Each day we've revealed
two new designers
who will be joining us in January.
If you missed our first five new designers
announced over the past three days, make sure you scroll
down to see who they are!

We are totally thrilled to welcome.....
The Play Date Cafe Design Team

"I'm a mostly-SAHM living in Austin, Texas.  
My two preschoolers keep me busy during the day 
so I do most of my stamping late at night 
once the house is quiet.  
I also work a couple part-time jobs
both as a substitute teacher at my kids' preschool, 
and also for Hero Arts, doing behind the scenes admin work, 
blog posts and best of all, corresponding with contest winners
such a fun job!  
I've served on a couple design teams in the past...
Hambo Stamps and Firecracker Designs by Pamela.  
I love playing along with blog challenges, 
so I am completely thrilled to be joining 
The Play Date Cafe team in 2011!!"

and now we welcome our newest
Private Blend Designer....
 Colleen Dietrich to 
The Play Date Cafe Design Team 

"I began cardmaking in 2007
and felt the ‘addiction’ take hold pretty quickly!  
I took the leap into blogging in late May 2010.  
My cards have won numerous challenge awards, 
and recently I was named as a Guest Designer for
Off The Wall Craftiness as well as a 
Guest Designer for the 
Splitcoast CAS Winter 2010-11 Design Team 

So there you have it!
What a team, huh!
Prepare to be super-inspired in 2011
with the new blend of designers here at
The Play Date Cafe!

We'll see you at midnight, EST with a
