The Diedrich Dare Sketch Challeng, week 10

This is so cool! I'm writing this post from Jessica's house in TN. We've had a great time together - doing some stamping, enjoying live country music, eating at the famous Loveless Cafe, finding treasures at the local scrapbooking store....we've had a grand time! I LOVE it here in Tennessee - it's BEAUTIFUL! I'm heading back to Chicagoland tomorrow morning.
Last night Jess and I did some stamping - and created our challenge cards for the weekly dare. I didn't spend a lot of time on my card, since I wanted to look through Jess's stamps and stamp a bunch of the images to take home. I was like a kid in the candy store. Hee Hee Hee...
Here is our challenge for the week - an inspiration challenge of mugs.

And here is my card - an actual "mug" card. Check out the cards of all the other Diedrich Dare members - I'm sure they've done excellent work like always. (I am lucky enough to see Jessica creating her awesome card IN PERSON!) Everyone is playing this week except Randi. We'll catch her next time.
Have a great week everyone! Greetings from the lovely state of Tennessee!

Here is a pic of Jessica and I at Good Morning America with Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood. It was great music! Nashville is known for it's good country music!
