Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #206

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great week!  I haven't gotten as much time in my craft room this week as I would have liked so I'm hoping to be able to create some cards this afternoon!  The activities are commitments are starting to ramp up around here so it's not leaving a lot of left over time for crafting!  I'm wondering if my family really needs to eat meals?!!!!  Think of the time I could save!!!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our amazing hostess this week is Linda Callahan!  Linda makes such beautiful cards!  I love her creativity!  She also has a fabulous sense of humour!  You need to check out her blog!
Now, you can only imagine the joking that went on in our group when Linda posted this sketch.  At first I thought she was trying to do me in.  Not only is there a big circle on it, there are THREE!  Seriously!  Actually, I knew right away I wanted to use coffee cups on this card.  I just love these sweet cups!  I wanted to create a really simple card.  I love simple (but you already know that!).  I love Kraft paper as well.  It speaks to me about as much as a pure white background!  I added a little heart from the Natural Elements and it was done!

Cardstock: Kraft, Whisper White
Stamps: Coffee Cozy (Lil Inkers)
Ink: Black Stazon
Other: Coffee Cozy Dies (Lil Inkers), Natural Elements, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Please had on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to see the amazing cards the design team has created for you!

I hope you have a fabulous day!
