Today's card uses the current Play Date Cafe colors.  If you missed yesterday's card, I'm celebrating my blog's first birthday this week.  If you're not already a follower, please become one.  At the end of the week I will randomly draw from this week's posts comments for a few mystery prizes.  I think the blogging world is fabulous and I'm always so appreciative of all the comments.  The DT at the Play Date Cafe has consistenly been great, week after week.  So thank you ladies.  I'm proud to say that my first card with PDC was almost exactly a year ago, I've been with you gals week after week, and this is my 44th card for you guys!  Woo hoo.
