Play Date Cafe 5

I didn't beat Anne this week lol. She's just too good!!!! However, you must check out the Play Date Cafe's colours this week. They are truly elegant. Blue, silver, violet and white. Again I've gone for a card and created it with a simple, bold design. And yes, I've used another in my swirly circles stamp set. Only one left to use before I can say they've each had at least one passing acquaintance with an ink pad.

Oh yes, & thank you to the Play Date Crew for selecting my card in challenge number four as one of the Fab4. It is very sweet and kind of you. Once again, thank you to everyone who left such wonderful comments on my blog. Reading each one is like taking a sip from a cup of hot cocoa. Warm, sweet and perks me up.

Congratulations Paul...Actually, it may make you smile to know that your card was the #1 choice for Fab 4, but we list in alphabetical order! : )

Anyway...we do appreciate your support of our challenge and we look forward to the additional competition you have with Anne each week! It's an extra story line that keeps us smiling! : )

Oh...and love this entry as well!

It's fabulous Paul. I love all those swirly circles stamps - why did it take youu so long to use them, they're great?
I love how you've put all the colours together and used the paper and buttons, just love it.
Btw, I won't be able to keep up the "race" every week you know! Getting far too old to keep up the pace! Ha ha.

It was very kind of you to let Anne win this week, being the first to enter ;)
Love this card, I really like the retro feel of it, and I love buttons and circles so this is a winner for me.
And congrats on making fab4

It is so nice to meet a guy stamper.
I just had to become a follower of your beautiful work. Your swirly circles are wonderful. Maybe you would like to join me at Soartful Challenges sometime.

Happy to meet you

I haven't been posting my cards for very long. I've been making them for years, but just got into this type card (using die cuts, etc.) Paul, I like your card and the way everything flows together. Great job on the fab 4! I hope to be good enough one day to win. Neat to see a guy making cards!



I have a blog:

Lovely elegant card Paul. It's great to see there are some guys out there stamping too (apart from the great Sir Tim that is lol)
Your little contest with Anne made me chuckle too.
