The Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC40

Yep!  It's 'Color Splash' week here in The Cafe!
Since our UK Senior Designer Sarah
is this week's host, here's a shout out for her....
It's 'Colour Splash' time!

What's it all mean?
Color Splash is Black & White with a hint of color.

This week's color:  Green
any shade is fine...lime, grass, pea, mint
it's YOUR call!

Senior Designer Sarah Anderson offers this
color splash inspiration...

A BIG welcome to our 
newest sponsor....

 Memory Box is a fabulous company that brings a
variety of wood-mounted and clear stamp with 
coordinating designer papers and inks
to the paper-crafting community
and we are so happy to have them with us
here in The Cafe.

This week's prize...

These wonderful wood-mounted rubber stamps
are the focus of The Cafe Design Team's projects
for this week and we hope they inspire you to play.

It's so fun when we share designers in common
with our sponsors, which we
think simply amounts to
'very good taste.
 This time around it's our own
Suzanne Czosek

We invite you to also visit
Outside the Box
Memory Box's fabulous DT Blog.
There Suzanne will share another wonderful
'color splash' project with you.
