Just Us Girls Anniversary and MTME October Release!!

Today is a very special day over at Just Us Girls!  Our JUGS blog is celebrating our 1 year anniversary!!!  We sure hope you can help us celebrate this week! We have several very generous sponsors who are donating some awesome prizes :]  Be sure to swing by JUGS to play along and check out all the goods!!  You DON'T want to miss it this weekend ;]

So, onto the challenge and a fun card made with some new My Time Made Easy supplies for the October release that went live yesterday!  This week I'm hosing the JUGS challenge with a quick, easy sketch.  Check it out:
Here's my take on the sketch...with a twist :]  I wanted to use my new Coffee Beans paper, so I kind of cheated on the sketch and layered my coffee mug on top of my tri-panel of embossed cs (because it matches my paper) ;]  Yes, I realize my coloring on the mug is NOT the best, but I didn't notice how bad it was until I edited the photo, so I hope you can look past the obvious, Copic streaks :O)  LOL
I masked the mug, stamped the daisies on the front, and then colored the mug.  I stamped a light blue daisy behind my sentiment (all from the same set, Fancy A Cuppa?), and punched it out with a 1" circle punch.  I used a 1 1/4" punch for the bottom layer. 
Okay, I have to close for now, it has been a LOOOONG day!  Please be sure to swing by the MTME teams' blogs to check out some more release goodies and collect all of the letters in our secret phrase to win another chance at a prize. 
My letter for you is "L".

You'll also want to be sure to swing by the Just Us Girls' blogs to play along and earn another chance to win a prize!!!!  Make sure you go in the order they are listed on the JUGS blog (if you're going in order and just made your way to my blog, Lisa is next :)

Thanks for swinging by today :]  Have a fantastic weekend!

Wow,this card turned out great! Love the colors and really like the embossing swirls that feel like the swirls of the rising steam. It's a touch most wouldn't bother to add but it really makes the card!
