Cafe and Ian - what a perfect combination!

Hello everyone, time for a neutral colour palette from me for a change over at the Play Date Cafe!

Here are this week's colours...
My green on my card is looking more like khaki than the colours shown here, but it is right in real life, honest!!

Today we are being sponsored by The Greeting Farm, as you will see over time I really love these stamps, they are particularly great for colouring in with Copics, fun!  We each got to play with a different Greeting Farm stamp, mine was 'Cafe Ian'.  VERY appropriate for me seeing as I'm a caffeine addict and Ian is my other half!!

The Greeting Farm are kindly sponsoring this week's challenge with a $25 gift certificate!  Ooh, can I win?!!! 

So what stamps did the other DT girls get?  Well pop by and see for yourselves, lots of beautiful inspiration, each totally unique ...
