I've got a play date...

with the Play Date Cafe challenge! Hi friends! So over on the TGF blog I saw that they are sponsoring the Play Date Cafe challenge this week and this was a new one to me. But as soon as I saw that it was a color combo challenge I knew that I wanted to play along, 'cause those are always a lot of fun! Their color story is green, white and a neutral... not as much color as I usually go for so that made it a real challenge and another way to shake things up a bit. Creeper Syren was singing her siren call to me and convinced me that this was just the card for her to live on and I was powerless to say no. ;) Isn't she a beauty? I fell in love with this little Creeper as soon as I laid eyes on her and I totally hope that she is just the first in a whole school of these finned Creeper gals (insert puppy dog eyes for Marie and Jess right here, LOL!) I colored her up in shades of green to go along with the challenge and even added a green pearl scepter for her to rule her undersea kingdom with. The rest is just a sheet of pattern paper that I stamped the bubbles, sentiment and sea horses onto. I think it makes for a pretty cool kelpy seabed home for miss Syren. All in all this was a fantastic challenge and I will definitely try to make time to join the PDCC fun again in future challenges. :) Toodles! Supply list: cardstock- Bazzill and PTI paper- BoBunny stamps- The Greeting Farm (Creeper Syren), Kraftin' Kimmie (seahorse, bubbles and shell), Inkadinkado (sentiment) Maya Road pearl stick pin Kaiser Craft pearls Prima crochet lace Copic Spica glitter pens Copic markers: skin- E0000, E000, E00, R00, R20, B00, YG11 hair- YG0000, YG00, YG01, YG06, YG03, YG07, YG09, 0 tail- YG21, YG13, YG23, G05, G07, G09, G29 everything else- E81, E87, E40, RV000, BG000

Hi Amy. I was just heading to bed and it occured to me that I never did get a chance to check out your card for today. This is so pretty, and just perfect for the challenge. I love how you have colored Syren and I really love the lace that you have used on the edge. Great card my friend. Hugs, Lisa

Wow, gorgeous creation Amy.

RiNNE said...

Beautiful underwater scene!! Your seahorses are perfect!! And that sentiment is too cute!!

I ran into the same run-on sentence problem today the you've been having (no pun intended!). Try putting the HTML code < then b then r then > (take out the words then and put them all together with no spaces. That is a code for break and should put the next sentence in a different paragraph. Hope this helps!
