Thought for the day -

Hi...this is going to be a quick post. My card for today is for the Friday Sketcher challenge. Murmur did an awesome sketch- I always enjoy working with her sketches.

I made this Saturday at our card -making get together. These are so much fun because you can borrow others stamp sets. That is what I did! I used this new set from Stampin Up- don't know the name but it is a great little coffee set. (one of my favorite things, lol).

I don't know who the dp is by, I've had this in my stash forever but thought it gave this card a great retro feel. I'm very happy with the outcome. The circles were a perfect way to use those cute little coffee cup stamps. I accented with a few brads from Making Memories and the ribbon is from American Crafts. A simple little card.
Back tomorrow with yet another card made on Saturday!
