As soon as I saw the colours for this week's Play Date Cafe challenge, I immediately thought of the Well Worn DSP from SU. They were perfect! So rich and masculine. Even the way the books are lined up in the colour story, and the 'stripes' of colour samples.

Any excuse to use those papers, and the "Have a Seat" stamp set make me happy :)

This week: Wine...Smudge...Leather...Parchment

Isn't it gorgeous?! It reminds me of the library in "Beauty and the Beast"... And makes me long for a wall full of books, with a wicked ladder on wheels :)

Someday, maybe!

The other day I went down to my crafty corner of the basement, and found this little note. I have a shelf where I put the "latest" cards that I have made... I only keep the ones there from the last time I stamped, so sometimes there's just 1 card, sometimes there are a few. When I reached up to the shelf to take down the older cards and put up my new one, this is what I saw:

oxo - I have an awesome husband - oxo

In other news, Hunter and I made the most delicious dessert for tonight's dinner. Which is good, because dinner itself was less than stellar :P I was craving chili, so we made that, but it was incredibly dry and bland. Normally I throw in some beef brother, which I forgot tonight, so maybe that was the problem. Needless to say, the Apple Gingerbread that was had post-"dry chili" was well worth suffering through the main course for.

Off for a second serving... (of the deliciousness, not the dry)
