The Play Date Cafe Challenge #36: take a moment


Happy Monday! I hope you're lucky enough to have a long weekend and are enjoying it!


I finally got the craft room *close* to being finished last night, and at least close enough where my desk was cleaned off and I could stamp again! Whoo! Hoo!


I ran across this challenge last week from The Play Date Color Cafe and thought the colors were so pretty. I used the new SU In Color Poppy Parade, such a bright, fun red! I started by coloring the bowl in with another new In Color Blushing Bride, but later I found a Pink Pirouette Top Note piece in my scrap box (my newly cleaned out and organized scrap box, sweet!), so I used it. Hopefully the bowl is small enough you can't tell too much.


Have you got big plans today? After walking on the treadmill and cleaning up, I plan on venturing out on a few errands...I've been such a homebody these last 3 days! I *plan* to finish up my room and then I can share some updated photos. Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!


Recipe
Stamps: It's the Thought hostess
Cardstock: Poppy Parade, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette.
Ink: Staz-On Black, Blushing Bride & Poppy Parade markers.
