Grow A Dream - Play Date Cafe #105


Hi-ya crafty friends!  I'm returning this week to The Play Date Cafe and getting back into a creative mode. Thanks so much to all of my sweet friends in the Cafe for giving me the time that I needed with my family over these last few weeks - we are deeply grateful for the calm after the storm.

Our color story this week is creamy and sweet: 
Kraft, Flesh, and Cadet Blue

We hope you'll join us for this week in the Cafe and are inspired by these lovely colors.  I just love the smokey blue paired with two light neutrals.  So many directions you could choose... and I was very tempted to run full speed to winter and snowflakes with this color palette, but in the end I decided I'm not quite there yet and opted for something soft and all-occasion.  I used Papertrey's Garden Variety stamp set and dies paired with papers from My Mind's Eye.


The prize this week in the Cafe is fantastic and is being offered by Kraft Outlet.  You have most likely noticed that I am smitten with all things kraft, so this is right up my shopping/creating/adoring it alley.  Pop over and check them out - you will fall in LOVE with all things kraft.

Looking forward to seeing what you create this week for The Play Date Cafe Challenge #105 - enjoy the kraft! ;)

Stamps: PTI Garden Variety and Year of Flowers Collection; Ink: SU! Soft Suede and Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic markers; Cardstock: PTI Kraft and Rustic Cream; Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye; Tools: PTI Seed Packet Frame, MFT Medium Scallop border; Sassy Somethings: Memrie Mare (etsy) cabbage rose ribbon, Crate Paper button, Prima vintage trim
