Hi, there!

I decided to make another card for the Spring+Summer 2020 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  I saw several cards with a beautiful coffee cup using the Coffee Queen digital image from Garciellie Design!  I couldn't resist purchasing the digital image, so pretty!



For my card, I started with a white card base and paired it with tropical leaf paper.  The image was colored with copics.  The border strips were inked with distress inks using a stencil from TCW(Balzer Designs).  The sentiment is from Precious Remembrance, which says...Coffee shared with a friend is happiness & time well spent.  An epoxy pink heart and seam binding ribbon from Paper Sweeties to finish the card.   




We found another robin nest last week.  It is right on top of our evergreen.  The eggs are such a lovely blue color.  Every time we open our back patio door the mother robin flies away.  She stays near and let's us know that she wants to get back on the nest.  I recently read that it takes about two weeks for the eggs to hatch.  The beauty of nature is such a delight to see!

I have several more cards that I've made, but I will post them at another time.  My husband is on vacation this week.  We have planted geraniums and hostas around the house.  I have a wooden flag that he said he would varnish for me.  So, maybe I better scoot and see how he is doing, lol!  Take care all!  And, thanks so much for dropping by today!

Hugs!

For my card, I started with a white card base and used distress inks of Broken China and Salty Ocean for the sky and water.  I used Vintage Photo distress ink for the sand.  All images are from Paper Sweeties and were colored with copics.  Jake just finished surfing the fun waves.  He is now cooling off with a refreshing coffee drink!  Jake's swim trunks, surf board, and sentiment is from the set Surf's Up.  The shells and star fish are from the set Mermaid Wishes.  The palm trees are from the set Island Time.  Wink of Stella was added for interest to the images.  And, twine to finish the card.


The inside sentiment, which is from the same set as the coffee drink on the front of the card.  It says...Life Begins after Coffee!  Oh, to be on a beach somewhere enjoying a cold coffee drink...sigh.
