The Play Date Cafe PDCC111



Oh yeah!  It's Color Splash time once again!

What a great inspiration photo chosen by our
Jaclyn Miller.  We are also celebrating that it was
nearly two years ago that we had our very first
color splash using this beautiful color!

So your challenge this week is to use:

Black...
White...
a 'Splash' of
Teal

We are so happy to have one of our long-time
players as our sponsor....


 "Hello, my name is Cindy Coutts from Cindy Coutts Designs
Welcome to one of my favorite challenges, The Play Date Cafe. 
I am so honored to be able to sponsor this week's challenge. 
I am hopelessly addicted to anything to do with paper, stamps, ink, all of the big girl toys. I started stamping in July 2007 but didn't get very serious about it until I discovered Splitcoast Stampers. After that, it was all over with. My style is just about anything depending on what's in front of me. I currently hostess the Featured Stamper Challenge at SCS every Sunday, design for Flourishes Stamps Bring Back Beautiful, and the Clean and Simple Stamping Blog (Fall to Layout). I've had the privilege to work with the finest designers in the industry being on various design teams and am heavily published. I love to inspire and share my work with others and I hope that you'll visit me sometime at my blog. I am so thrilled to be able to provide this week's prize for The Play Date Cafe participants. I have 4 wonderful kids and 1 daughter-in-law  and live in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area. Thank you so much for allowing me to be part of your challenge this week."
