The Play Date Cafe Challenge #65

First of all, I want to say a heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone for the warm welcome I received last week as I officially began my journey with The Play Date Cafe! Your comments made me feel so good!! Last week's colors were so soft and pretty, but this week is more fun and funky! Here's what they inspired me to create:

I played with my new Hero Arts set Just Saying Hi. This telephone is just too much fun. It's hard to believe that my kids will grow up having no idea what a rotary dial is, craziness. :-) (actually some of you stampers are so young you probably don't either, LOL!) To give this sweet old phone a little more somethin'-somethin', I coated it with Glossy Accents. Yes, I may have to admit one of these days that I'm completely addicted to Glossy Accents...!

Sarah chose the color story this week, and was inspired by a cute piece of fabric. Love those birds!

I hope you'll all play along this week, the challenge is being sponsored by Cosmo Cricket! Yay!

Look at the wonderful paper up for grabs! This mini deck is just as fun as the colors of this week's challenge!

Be sure to check out all of my fellow PDCC designers!

  3. This is so fun, Libby! I adore that big phone!

  4. Oh, but *I* remember rotary dialing phones! I am sad to say that. :)

    Love how you cut out the "Hello" ransom style under the phone, Libby. Very cute!

  7. Ooh I just LoVe this Libby. As you get to know me you will know that these kind of colours are totally me! Love the phone too, yet another set I 'need' now!! I can remember rotary dialling, but don't tell anyone, will you!

  8. What a great take on the color challenge! Orange and green aren't my faves and I wasn't thrilled when I saw the challenge post; but now that I see how you rocked it~ I'm inspired!!!! I'm a bit of an addict with the glossy stuff too - there's always something on a card that can use some shine. EXCELLENT use of it.
