The Play Date Cafe: Thanks


Hello and Welcome to The Play Date Cafe  #148!


 n a v y  b l u e...s t o n e...p e a c h

fantabulous color trio!

This week our sponsor is

available at Gina K Designs


Lighthearted Wishes is the prize!


Isn't it a sweet set?

navy blue

It's definitely not a go to color for me...and I have very little in navy except for this awesome pattern paper by Pink Paislee...


...actually all the paper is Pink Paislee/House of 3...love that collection!

I made my own little pocket out of the stone polka dot paper.  I added a smidge of the navy for the interior lining.  I didn't have a hole punch handy so I used a spool of thread for my template to make the notch on the top of the pocket.  How perfect that my gift card that I slipped inside the pocket matches, perfectly:)

The sentiment is SRM, the label is from the July ohDEERme kit. 

Can't wait to see how the color inspire YOU!
