Hi there! I hope you are having a great week! I'm still here, just a little busy working on projects for the upcoming MFT August release that is right around the corner. We're going on vacation to our home away from home in San Diego soon and while there, we will be touring 4 colleges with / for Connor. How time flies!

I'm very excited and honored to be participating this week along side the talented Play Date Cafe DT! Not only am I joining along with the challenge but I am sponsoring it! Julie Ranae, (Owner / Administrator of The Play Date Cafe), has graciously extended the opportunity for me to share some of my My Favorite Things MPD products with her, the DT and one lucky player. Please be sure to visit The Play Date Cafe for some awesome DT inspiration and for complete details. Here are the colors we will be playing with:
For my sample, I first made the background papers using the Petal Pattern stencil, various acrylic paints and the gelli arts printing plate. I then randomly stamped on the polka dot image from Distressed Background Blocks using Kraft ink.
Once the background was dry, I stitched the layers together then added a couple of Orange Fizz hibiscus blooms that were stamped using Tropical Sensations on coordinating die cuts that were made using Die-namics Tropical Sensations dies. I finished it with a sentiment from Just My Type.
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with Cardabilities:
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you hop on over to The Play Date Cafe for complete details!
Be Sweet ;)

You are amazing in nailing challenges; no matter if they are based on a sketch or a color combo:)
