Hi, there!

It's time for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  Actually, it started last Friday on the 25th, but it's still on until June 1st!  I'm finally getting around to making a card and posting it!  A busy holiday weekend with yard work, planting flowers, and a little time out enjoying the sun!  Anyways, here is my coffee themed card using a few sets from Paper Sweeties!  There are several coffee/tea themed sets available that you can check out to make a creation or send a card to a friend who needs a (perk) up card!:-) 

 And, here is my card...

For my card, I started with a blue base and paired it with a water colored background using mustard seed distress ink.  The coffee cup and sentiment panel was water colored with various distress inks.  The sentiment and small coffee cups from Tackle life one cup at a time.  I just love that sentiment!  The large coffee cup is from the set Keep calm and drink coffee.  The mat underneath the coffee cup is actually the rainbow from the set Somewhere over the rainbow.  The hearts are from the same set.  The scallop frame is from the set Sweet Cuts-Rectangle Scallop Frames.  Twine and gold spray mist to finish the card.

Project Supplies:

Keep calm and drink coffee

Thanks so much for dropping by!  Enjoy the hop!  Have a great week!
