Hi Everyone:

I just wanted to share my card for the Play Date Cafe Challenge. I have never ever played any of their challenges but sweet Libby and Julie are a part of my Hero Arts Flicker group. So I couldn't help but check out the challenge and play along.  The do have one amazing Design Team and you might want to check it all out for yourself!

Today this challenge will hosted bye the one and only Kelly Rasmussen! Yahoo! She is one of the gals listed in my sidebar as one of my Inspiration Blogs. Her style and ability to make some outstanding cards is just amazing. So make sure to check out her blog. Kelly is a Hero Arts Designer ( my fav stamps right now... lol!) and this week the Cafe Gals are giving away this!

 Wow this is amazing! I would so love to win this. I know the competition is fierce, but who knows! Anything can happen right!  Lol. So without any more delay, here is my card for this challenge.
