The Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC101



The week's seem to be flying by, don't they?

Each week, it is one tough decision to limit our
winners and honorable mentions down to what we do.
This week was NO EXCEPTION!
What a beautiful gallery you provided with all
the inspiring creations.
Thank you for helping us celebrate challenge #100!
Here we are with another amazing color story
from our Color Story Coordinator, Jaclyn.
Such rich colors indeed.

Her suggested colors are:
Wine...Smudge...Leather...Parchment

Now it's up to you to interpret what those
colors mean to you!
That's what we love about our challenge....
colors are subjective in many ways and we
like it that way for our challenge...so have fun!

This week, we welcome a new sponsor to The Cafe...


Paper and Such is an online store that just opened in May of 2011.  Shortly after opening, we decided to debut our own stamp line, and it's been nothing short of exciting.  Our stamps are clear photopolymer, and are made right here in the USA!  Our HOT SHOT line is a line of chicken stamps - if you haven't seen them, be sure to check them out.  We carry a variety of stamps and supplies to suit everyone's style, and we are constantly adding to our inventory with new manufacturers.

This week's Cup of the Week will receive....
