Tweet Thoughts - Play Date Cafe #122


Welcome to a gorgeous new week in the Play Date Cafe!  Our color story this week is chic and mod... very on trend and a bit reminiscent of our adored 'color pop' challenges...

Charcoal, Ash, and Butter  

I love yellow these days... I think it's the promise of sunshine-y spring days.  I chose to make it my card's accent color.  The gray background was made using the 'special edition' doily stamp that was included in my Market Fresh Kit from Market Street Stamps.  I love getting all the coordinating goodies each month.  I also used their new Houndstooth background for my frame and a sentiment from Comforting Florals (adore the font).  The sweet bird is created from the Homespun Birdhouse die-namics via My Favorite Things.  I think it's a nice card to have on hand for sending a bit of encouragement or even kind sympathies.


Our sponsor this week in the Cafe is Simon Says Stamp... don't miss this chance to play along and win a shopping spree to their store... you know they have everything! (and you need it all! ;)

Lovely card, Denise. The yellow bird is the perfect touch for this comforting, sympathy type card.

Denise, this is beautiful! I wish one could buy that special doily stamp on its own. ;) It's so precious! Great job using the houndstooth for the frame.
