Time for a quickie!

Sometimes that's ALL there is!

And sometimes - just a little time, is a GREAT time!

That's how it went down for me, this afternoon, in Scrapland! Just a quick card to dash in at the very last minute to the Play Date Cafe (*Swoon*) and a fun composition from Get Sketchy!

Check out this absolutely DREAMY photo and colors of inspiration, brought to you from Julie, the well traveled and completely inspiring hostess of Play Date Cafe!!!

It was the PERFECT palette and sophisticated inspiration for me to finally break out my Tim Holtz/Sizzix embossing folder... the one that looks like a brick wall.... {YIPEEE!} And, I found that this fabulous sketch from the talented Get Sketchy artists... to be just the thing to help me get my images and colors glued together!

Sometimes, a little time is all that is needed!

Hope you get WHATEVER kind of time you need to get some craft-ON, today! I love when the planets line up and a little time becomes CRAFT TIME! Yee Haw!

Speaking of CRAFT TIME! I hope you'll check back with me late, tomorrow night... I'm quite delighted and HONORED to be helping the Play Date Cafe team introduce their newest palette! So, it is my supreme hope that you might catch a little wave of inspiration and join on up!
