Coffee and Friends - Spring Coffee Lover's Blog Hop

Good morning! I have a fun card to share this morning that I made to join in with the Spring Coffee Lover's Blog Hop over at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog.



I used Lil' Inker Designs product, one of the sponsors for the hop! Want to know a secret? I kind of hate coffee - no matter how HARD I tried to like it! I'm personally a big fan of tea! However - I have a hubby is is a self admitted coffee snob, and two daughters that at a much younger age than their current 11 and 12 years fell in love with coffee thanks to him. (((Sigh))) I'm surrounded by coffee lovers - so I just go along with it...and happily sip my own tea! ;)


I used the fun Coffee Cozy Die set, and Coffee Cozy Stamps, along with the Silly Stitched Die Set to build my fun coffee card.


I added some watercolors to the background, and a bit of jute twine tied around the coffee cups.


Here are links to the products I used on this including affiliate links where possible. Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!!!

  4. It takes all of us to make the world go round, Heather! I love coffee, can't drink it, love hot chocolate and iced tea. Don't normally drink anything but water! Do love your card! Don't fret...the kids will get older and be into much more than coffee, hopefully cookies and milk! Enjoy your Friday and Happy Hopping!

  5. I never used to like tea and was totally on team coffee, but my cousin introduced me to Rooibos tea and I've fallen head over heels! Speaking of falling head over heels - your card is spectacular! That splashy wash of yellow is the perfect undertone to make those coffee mugs the star of the show! I totally pinned this beauty so I can drool over it again later!

  12. Awesome background and colors. Love that sentiment. Your story about your family is cute. We joke about my Teenage son walking around the house in his robe and slippers carrying around his coffee. All he needs is a newspaper under his arm to look like an old man. LOL
