Play Date Cafe

Hello.
The Play Date Cafe asked me to be their guest designer this week - how very kind and nice.  Can you believe it, I discovered after submitting my card, that one of their senior designers, Sarah Anderson, lives just 5 minutes drive from my house.  It's SUCH a small world.  Hoping we get to meet one day soon, and play together. :)
So here are this week's colours:
And here is my card.
I used Kathy Martin's cute Home Sweet Home image with more of Shelley Castillo's Home is Where the Heart Is papers.  Such a yummy kit.  Had to add a shiny front door... :)
Hope you get a chance to play along.  Click HERE for the details :)
P.S. Just noticed I am almost at 500 followers.  Giveaway on the horizon. :)

Wow, just been looking at your latest blog entries. Such beautiful cards. Clean and elegant, just the style I adore. Your card for the PDC challenge is wonderful. So bright and colourful and I love the vast quantity of white space. Between you and Stephanie Kraft, I'm tempted to dig out my sewing machine too. Pxx
