The Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC98


Welcome everyone to another challenge!

It's a very, very bittersweet week here in
The Cafe as we say goodbye to two of our
beautiful designers....
Libby Hickson & Tracey Kuzniak
The inspiration that these girls have provided
to our team and to our players has been
phenomenal and are sharing their
final DT creations 
for this week's challenge.
Both Libby and Tracey have new
'life' adventures that they are on and we
wish them much love and know that they
are friends for life.
I hope you will visit our designers blogs especially
this week as each is sharing their fondest thoughts
of both of these wonderful girls.

We are delighted to welcome another new
sponsor to The Cafe...


DRS Designs - a family owned company since 1950 - 
boasts hundreds of original rubber
stamp designs. All images are available fully mounted, completely unmounted or mounted
on cling cushion and are proudly hand crafted in the USA. 
Our rubber stamp collection includes a wide assortment of images including sentiments for all occasions, easy

stained glass and plaid designs.
The DRS Designs website features a huge card sample gallery, online demos and tips, a secure shopping area and more. Be sure to visit our daily blog with posts from our fantastic
