Hi There! Here today to share a card I made for the ONE year anniversary celebration for The Play Date Cafe Creativity Challenge. Julie has invited me to join along in this SPECIAL event! Please be sure to visit The Play Date for COMPLETE details!
Along with some of my favorite products, I used a special flower that was hand crocheted by my dear sister Tina :) Tina will be surprised to receive this card as I made it for her while out of town this past week at my "home away from home" in San Diego. Have you noticed the stitching on my cards lately? I had to sew the "old fashioned" way using a needle and thread because although I do travel to San Diego with a limited number of supplies, a sewing machine is not one of them! :) LOL

Isn't this color story gorgeous? I love all the pinks, oranges & yellows :) Pure elegance!
Close up you can get a good look at the embossed detail in the lacy heart image from Seasons of Love - Tags. One of the many things I appreciate about Waltzingmouse stamps - not to mention the fact that sooooo many of Claire's fabulous designs coordinate with Spellbinders™ die templates! BONUS & a match made in my stamping Heaven ;)
That's all I have for today but ALL the girls at The Play Date Cafe have some amazing samples to gaze upon so, please be sure to stop by & see what they have to offer for inspiration!

Thanks for visiting - Be Sweet!


Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Seasons of Love - Tags, Rescue Remedies Additions
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™Nestabilities® S4-136 Classic Heart, S4-242 Big Scalloped Borderabilties® Petite, GC-001 Grand Calibur
