So today is the last day of the coffee hop.  I have enjoyed it so much.  I want to thank all of you who stopped by my blog and left comments.  I truly appreciate it, and I enjoyed stopping by yours and doing the same.

For my creation today I made a card for my Heidi Swapp Memorydex.   I just love my Memorydex and need to work alot on it, so this was a fun way to jump start it.

I used the Memorydex die to cut out my panel and used the Happy die too.  I inked the edges of the card and inked the happy die cut too with brown ink.  Then stamped the super cute images from the "Paris" stamp set by "Neat and Tangled".   I colored in the images with colored pencils.  I am just loving this card for my Memorydex.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely Spring.

A Spot of Tea

Today is day 7 of the Spring Coffee Hop and I am having a lovely time seeing all the inspiration in blog land.  the link to the hop is in my sidebar if your interested in playing along.
Today I have a super fun card to share with you.  Here is a pic.

I used the Peg Stamp Set "A Spot of Tea" by Rubber Stamp Tapestry.  I just love peg stamps, they are so fun to use.  I used the colors, orange, navy, green, and burgundy.  I layered the Time for Tea sentiment (which is also a peg stamp) and added the orange bow.  So sweet.

I want to thank all of you who have stopped by my blog.  I know it is alot of work and so time consuming to stop and comment.  I have been doing it myself, but I also get to see so much inspiration.

I hope you have a wonderful day.

Pretty Things

Today is day 6 of the Coffee Hop and I am having a fabulous time playing along and hopping.  You can find the link to  it in my sidebar if you would like to play along.
For today's card I used some fabulous elements.  Here's the pic.

I started by spritzing a cardstock panel with some water and then add the Yellow and Lemon Brusho colors.  I'm in LOVE with the Brusho!!  Amazing color and texture.  Then I mounted that to the ivory and buff colored cardstock, added the flower (which I assembled), I printed it out,  then spritzed it with some color spray and then cut it out and assembled it.   Added the sentiment, which is from Latina Crafter (and one of my favorite coffee sentiments)  and for a finishing touch, added the coffee wood veneer pieces.

That's all for me today, I hope you have a lovely day.

Brentwood Owl Needs More Coffee

Today is day 5 of the Spring Coffee Lovers Hop.  I am having loads of fun.  If you would like to play along, the link to it is in my sidebar.  Here is a pic of my card.

I used the image "Brentwood Owl Needs More Coffee", by Jessica Lynn Original.  He is a real cutie.  I love how he is peeking out of the cup.   I colored the image with my Koh-I-Noor woodless colored pencils, mounted that to some brown cardstock, added a flower, and sweet rhinestone butterfly.

I hope your having a great time with the hop, I know I am.  Always so much inspiration to see.  Have a great day.

Joyful Tilda

Today is day 4 of the Spring Coffee Lover's Blog Hop.  You can find the link to it in my sidebar.
I am using Joyful Tilda for my card today.  She is a real cutie.  Here is a pic.

I used a base of pink cardstock, some polka dotted DP, and some DP with little vintage roses.  I mounted the image to that and colored the image with Distress Inks.  Added the pearls, rose ribbon, doilie, straw, flowers and she was done.  Just adorable!!  I'm wanting to have a tea party after whipping this up.

That's all for me today, I hope you have loads of fun hopping.

Coffee and a Spirograph

Today is day 3 of the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  When I was a child I use to sit for hours and play with my Spirograph set.  I loved all the fun possibilities.   Today,  I have the cutest Spirograph set and wanted to use it to make a fun background for a coffee card.  Here is a pic.

I used a base of grey and mint green cardstock, and mounted my spirograph background onto that.  I then colored in the middle of the Spirographs and added some fun elements to the middle of them.   The coffee cup is from the Sweet Stamp Shop's "Coffee Town" set, and I just can't seem to remember which stamp set the sentiment is from (sorry).  I stamped those off in green and added them to the card.

That's it for me today, so glad you stopped by and hope you have a fun time hopping.

Hot Java Mamas

Today is day 2 of the Coffee Loving Cardmaker's Hop.
I have a fun card to share with you today.  Here is the pic.

The stamp I used is by Art Impressions and is called "Hot Java Mamas!".  I won this stamp on the last hop and want to thank Art Impressions again for the lovely prize.  I enjoyed using it.
 I used a base of green and mint green cardstock, my Spectrum Noir markers to color the image,  Added the pink daisy and a brad using my brad maker, then added the ladybug to the petals and yellow ribbon, and touch of Stickles sparkle to the Green Tea Frappe's whipped cream.

That's it for me today, I'm off hopping.  Have a lovely day.
