Day 155: This Made My Day Card

I needed a super quick and easy card today, because I am really just feeling under the weather. I managed to power through tuxedo shoe shopping and grocery shopping and very soon I'm going to tuck myself into bed for the evening and sleep...well, until my boys get up at 5 am!
Max and I went out and procured him a shiny new pair of tuxedo shoes this morning, and he is happy as a clam again. He charmed the shoe salesgirl with his enthusiasm for what might be the least popular footwear in the the children's department, wearing them right out of the store after abandoning his Ninja Turtle Crocs in the middle of the store. Before we found Max's happy feet, though, we hit up my favorite coffee shop, Atticus.  So I think I had coffee on the brain when I went to whip up this simple card. I'm linking this one up to the Friday Mashup Let's Eat Challenge. 
Now I got to work with the new Picture My Life Designs for my Convention Presentation, and I absolutely love the new cards coming this fall...but the For Always cards are my favorite of the retiring designs. I bought an extra package to be sure my pocket scrapbooking stash won't run low on these for a long while. The black, white, cream, and bamboo color palette is so elegant and works for so many things. I cut the mug out of a card, and the sentiment off another. Then I stamped the background with OH MY HAPPY from Happy Everything, the Operation Smile stamp set I've been obsessing over this week. This card took me less than 5 minutes, and that seriously just made my day!
