Football and Coffee ...

... well maybe not a good combination!

But since hubby is upstairs watching football (GO STEELERS!)  I decided to join in the new challenge offered up over on the AAA Cards Challenge Blog. (hence the coffee reference! lol)

I have had a couple coffee themed stamp sets in my stash for quite awhile now and hadn't yet inked them up!  Well, today's the day for one of them!  LOL
What do you think?
This is certainly CAS (clean & simple) ... and a lot of fun!

After sponging on a little TH 'tea dye' & 'walnut stain' distress ink in the lower corner, I then stamped my Frantic Stamper (FRA-CL-133) Coffee stamp that was inked up using the same Tim Holtz Walnut Stain ink.   A white gelly roll pen was used to create the steam.

I can see I need to get busy and make more coffee themed cards as I have a lot of friends & family who are coffee lovers and I'm sure they would enjoy these sentiments.

Ok ... that's it for me today.  Time to get the kabobs put together for tonights dinner!
