Two Challenges, One Little Brother and a Big Coffee To Go...

So my little ole brother and his wife have a chance to purchase their first house and *gasp* it's not right on campus as they are used to. It's so far away-- like 15 whole minutes! I can't help but giggle because we live a mile off of pavement and 45 minutes from everything...
Anyway, in honor of his potential commute, I made this card-- it's also for two challenges--WT212 (use foil) on Splitcoast, and SASSC9, which is a sketch challenge on a super cool site (called Stamps and Smiles) I stumbled upon this morning. I used big wheel background paper because he will always be my little brother (no matter if he is old enough to buy a house or not), and the stainless steel mug looks just like my husband's. The foil (do you say foy-yel or foll?) is just regular ole aluminum foil from my pantry. I made the sentiments myself on the computer. Thanks for looking!
