PDCC
















These are the beautiful colours this week for the Play Date Cafe Challenge.  I am really in the swing of making Christmas cards at the moment, so although unusual colours I decided to have a go, the design team this week have come up with some amazing cards and projects and I have been inspired!!

















 I have just got this Musical background stamp and LOVE it!




































I found an old piece of beige PP in my scraps box, if you look closely it has a faint lace design on it, I stamped this lightly with my music stamp and then tore and distressed the edges.  The snowflake stamp is a Hero Arts one from last year, I stamped and embossed in white then distressed with Broken China and Tumbled Glass and sprayed with some blue perfect pearls for a light shimmer. I really like this colour combination .
 Its a lovely bright but cold day today so I'm off to do some tidying in the garden.
Have a great weekend.
