The Play Date Cafe' Challenge #6--A New Treasure...and Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Happy Thanksgiving morning to you all!

This will be quick--and it's late! My computer is having major trouble today, and this is the first access I've had to my blog since last night!

This is week #6 of The Play Date Cafe'--and we're having such a great time! Hope you'll all join in with us if you're not already! This week's colors were chosen by Sarah, and they're just so fun and fabulous!

Here's my take on the challenge this week:

Just got two fabulous new stamp sets from Cornish Heritage Farms--they're full of vintage baby adorableness!

Look at those fantastic vintage fonts and sweet sayings!

A little closer up view--I'm trying to work on my watercoloring a way to go, but I'm having fun learning!

Had fun with this card--new stamps and fresh, fun colors--thanks, Sarah! Now I can't wait to see your take on these colors---eat that turkey and get stamping!

Well...the turkey's starting to smell pretty wonderful! This year I am doing my sweet friend Marie's turkey. Marie has the most wonderful blog--The English Kitchen--if you haven't been there yet--do your self a favor and hustle over! Every day is a treat...good food...gorgeous pictures of the food...fabulous recipes...all from her beautiful cottage kitchen! Thank-you, Marie!

I hope you all have the most wonderful Thanksgiving Day today with your family and friends...enjoy every delicious, calorie-laden moment!

  1. Awwww sorry you had such a rough time with your computer but never are up and running (for the moment) and all is good.

    You really did a wonderful vintage job with those colors. Sometimes bright colors do not lend themselves to the faded shades of vintage, but you did an outstanding card!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
