The Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC95

Welcome in to The Cafe everyone!

We are having so much fun this summer sharing 
amazing color stories from all different point of view.
We genuinely love that you play along with us each week!

This week, Jax's suggested colors are:

Navy...Bubblegum...Leaf Green

Always remember that we love when you interpret the 
colors you see to what's on your creative palette, 
so please play with that in mind.
We are VERY excited to welcome this week's sponsor.
  Michelle Ogdahl has been a friend to The Cafe
since we started and has recently started a
fabulous stamp line with the help of Lisa Hetrick.

Avocado Arts is a new company that offers high-quality, clear, photopolymer stamps that are made in the USA. We love that you can "SEE" what you're stamping.  Each month, we release a 4 x 6, clear photopolymer set with images that are interchangeable, giving you endless possibilities in stamping and are perfect for the beginner to the advanced stamper.  We offer our club members exclusive inspiration for each stamp set that is purchased along with perks and discount on other stamp sets.  We believe in providing as many ideas throughout the month as possible and encourage our customers to share their creativity as well.  We also offer a color and sketch challenge every month because we LOVE to get stampy!

In addition to our monthly stamp set we also offer 3 Scrappy stamp sets and a stamp set “My Wish for You” that is part of our Giving Good program.  We believe in paying it forward and giving so each month a portion of the sales from the “My Wish for You” set is donated to a different organization, group, foundation or cause that we support.

We have an outstanding Design Team called the "Pit Crew".  These ladies are super talented and will inspire you with their creativity on our blog throughout the month.  
We look forward to seeing you over at Avocado Arts
