Good Morning Coffee

It's the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. The Certified Coffee Drinker and sentiment stamps are from Papertrey Ink's Latte Love stamp set. The mug is from Simon Says Stamp What's Brewing? stamp set stamped on patterend paper with Jet Black Archival Ink and fussy cut. The checkerboard is from Waltzingmouse's Off Beat Backgrounds stamped in Mowed Lawn over Mowed Lawn blended on the mat. The sun is Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed with a sky of Tumbled Glass. The card base is Ocean Tides by Papertrey Ink.
Simon Says Make It Masculine (3rd entry).

Stonehenge, the card.

I finally made a cut file from a photograph to cut with my Cricut Explore. I was so excited to be making progress in this area I forgot to write down the steps, but I did use filters in Photoshop Elements 6. It is great for fans of Stonehenge AND fans of Spinal Tap (no spoilers in case you haven't yet seen the film).

I think it would be difficult to find a more vintage image than this, so I'm entering it in CAS-ology's Vintage challenge. I think it can also be used as a card to send to a man, so I'm entering it in Simon Says Make It Masculine challenge.
