Stamp Simply Challenge, Express Thanks!

Hi all! Happy Friday and welcome to another Stamp Simply Challenge from Sharon (and if you read my previous post, you would know that Sharon is having a special celebration starting Monday Dec.1st! with lots of prizes, games and inspiration!)

This week's challenge is a super simple one! We were to make a card expressing other rules, thats it! Here is my card:

I love coffee, all flavors! And so do lots of my friends, so this card came together really quick for me. This is the new stamp set from Gina K Designs called 'My Cuppa' Joe' from the last release, such fun images in this set! I also used my new label one dies that I just got at Stamper's Dream. I was so tickled to see that Michelle had got them in so had to get them...I am thinking she might be sold out right now of them...these things going like hotcakes! I can understand why, I love them too! LOL! I colored the images with koh-i-noor pencils and OMS and did a bit of sponging ( I think I getting a BIT better at it, lol) and that's about it! Simple, fun and going to a good friend of mine.

Now, go and check out the wonderful Stamp Simply DT gals! (some may not be up as early as mine, but they will be there by tomorrow!) Here are the links below:
