The Play Date Cafe Challenge #79

I'm so excited about this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge - my favorite company, Hero Arts, is our sponsor!! YAY!! So of course I used some Hero goodness on my card:

I thought the pattern on Big Cup sort of resembled the design on our inspiration piece:

The entire cup is coated with Glossy Accents for added shine & dimension IRL. Love that stuff!

We also have a wonderful guest designer this week - the sweet and fabulous Kelly Rasmussen from the Hero Arts design team! YAY! I love everything she creates, so I can't wait to see how she used this week's colors!

I also can't wait to see what my fellow PDCC teammates came up with using their Hero Arts stamps!

Julie Ranae * Sarah Anderson * Savannah O'Gwynn * Ruby 2 Shoes * Andrew Ewen * Fiona Shultz * Jaclyn Miller * Jinny Newlin * Michele Gross * Tracey Kuzniak * Colleen Dietrich

There's a great prize up for grabs for this week's winner - a $25 Hero Arts shopping spree! Fun!

I cannot wait to see what YOU will create! Check out the challenge at the Play Date Cafe site!

I made this card during a fun afternoon of stamping with friends at Archivers! Lucky me, I got to hang out with Lydia, Dana and Kim. Loved every minute of it!

Me and my Lydia:

My fabulous new friend Kim and sweet, hilarious Dana:
