The Play Date Cafe Creativity Challenge 20 (PDCC20)


Hello! I am SO excited as this is my very first post as a Design Team member of The Play Date Cafe! Grab a cup of coffee (or your favorite beverage) as my post is a long one... :)

As the Play Date Cafe begins a new season of designers, we also say goodbye to Julie Campbell, who has been on the design team for the past 4 months. To celebrate Julie's achievements and the new design team, we are having a BLOG HOP!

And.. there is candy to be won!!


The start of the hop officially begins at The Cafe. If you came here from Sarah's blog, then you are in the right place! Your next stop will be Ruby 2 Shoes!

In order to be eligible to win the blog candy:
  • You MUST visit each designer's blog and leave a comment on each blog!
Additional ways to have a chance to win:
  • Become a follower of The Play Date Cafe...easy-peasy!
  • Play along with this week's color challenge, PDCC20 (deadline is 11:59 PM EST on 3/16).
The winner will be chosen by random.org and announced on 3/18 as part of our regular challenge post.

Please welcome the fabulous new designers I will be creating along side:


We will be joining these talented Senior Design Team members:


Finally, I wanted to post a card using PDCC20, so below is my CAS creation. I used the Papertrey Ink set, Butterfly Dreams. I added the sentiment "Let your dreams take flight" and thought it was appropriate as I am truly honored to be chosen for the team and would like to thank all the Senior Design Team members for this wonderful opportunity!


Your next stop on the hop is the wonderfully talented Ruby 2 Shoes!
