The Play Date Cafe Challenge #94

It's Play Date Cafe time! And I am seriously diggin' this week's colors!

This week we're sponsored by Practicing Creativity - I'm also diggin' this fun Carved Love set I got to play with!

The colors from Jax this week are totally fabby:

I cut out the hearts from my Carved Love set and then coated then with Crackle Accents. I love that stuff. LOVE IT!! I also did some intentionally-messy-sewing, which always makes me smile as I do it. It's a sewing free for all!!

I thought the staple and brad at the bottom looked a little bit like an X & O, as in hugs & kisses. hee hee

Be sure to stop by The Play Date Cafe blog - to check out what my amazing teammates came up with, and to play along!!


  • Stamps: Carved Love from Practicing Creativity
  • Paper: Stampin' Up cardstock
  • Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, ColorBox Frost White
