Play Date Cafe' #46

I haven't done the PlayDate Cafe (PDCC46) challenge for along time, but when I saw that the challenge was to use black & white, plus your choice of pink, gold or copper I thought I would include a card I made yesterday for the Hero Arts/Operation Write Home virtual card party that happened over the weekend.  This is a super simple one layer card made using the new Hero Arts Fabulous Flourish design block.  Fabulous Flourish is the perfect name as this stamp is fabulous.  The sentiment is from the Hero Arts set Paris.   Next stop for this card:  Sandy Allnock of Operation Write Home.  If you have never checked out OWH, please do.  It is a great organization that provides handmade cards to our troops around the world!

Thanks for taking a peek.... have a wonderful day!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Ink:  PTI True Black, Stampin Up! Melon Mambo; Kaiser Craft pink rhinestones

Ooooo! Loving that juicy uber fabulous flourish with an attitude!! Great sweet little rhinestones to shine along with it. :>

You guessed it, by the way! I wasn't able to join the whole gang for the whole weekend, but I did get to go play on Friday night with Claire and our hostess....and loved every minute!

Hope your week is shaping up well. I'm crossing my fingers to squeeze in some creative time to finish that plaque I was working on on Friday night before my inlaws come at the end of the week, a kidlet bday, and then close friends who play Aunties to my kidlets coming the following weekend! :>
