Coffee and Friends, Friends and Coffee...what a fabulous combo!

Hey friends! Coming to you with a completely gratuitous card...no challenge attached! Can you believe it!? I just had a need to pay homage to two things in my life that make me smile. Fine friends and fine coffee (!)...two things I am very grateful for, for sure!

I love this coffee set from Papertrey Ink called Warm Happiness. It has such fun accessory stamps like the lines on the cups, the shadow under the cups, the dotted cup which I stamped in pink behind the cups out front and center, the sweet sentiment and the individual "coffee" stamp which fills in the sentiment and, also, flexible enough to curve on my acrylic block so it could be added to the cups as well! Fun! The dotted oval border stamp is also Papertrey Ink...Borders and Corners {Oval} set. Oh! And one precious vintage button from my stash to top off the satin dot ribbon from Papertrey as well.
OK, gotta run, all this coffee talk is making me hungry and perhaps in need of a second cup today? LOL Have a wonderful day everyone and thank you for stopping by. It means so much! Hug a friend, or your coffee (!), today! :)

Ohhh, baby! I'm with you on those items, Sista-friend! HOW stinkin' cute is THAT!?! I will say that your "free-range" non challenge efforts were WELL worth it! DAR-ling! Me thinks a second cup might be just what the Dana Dr. ordered! Yumm!
