I have been playing with backgrounds, and decided to make this card using one I stamped.

I would normally use more colours but this card didn't need colour.
I love this stamp set from Flourishes, and over the years have made quite a lot of different cards with it.
On other cards I have added cotton wool to the mug and added beads to make it look like whipped cream and chocolate, For a small set of stamps you can do lots with it.
The sentiment is:

 Coffee tastes better with a friend.

I am entering this on Less is More challenge 103 friends.
I think the challenges make blogging much more fun. They open a front cover to the biggest book of ideas you will ever see. It is nice to be able to be a part of that..


  1. Super card and yes! B&W works so well.
