Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day Three - Anything is Possible +Giveaway!





Hello!  Today is Day Three of the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  I'm so thrilled to be a part of this hop and hope you enjoy all the inspiration!


This post is a massive multi-tasking one...I'm also linking up to Pretty Pink Posh's watercolor blog hop!


I have other challenges that I'm linking to but let me show you my card first:

paper:  strathmore watercolor  stamps:  verve/coffee  ink:  fresh ink/charcoal, zing black  other:  peerless watercolors, verve/coffee word die, winnie & walter first birthday bash sequin mix

Although it's pretty 'soupy'...I love what the Peerless did...I used a green and a red....really love working with the different colors and adore how vibrant the colors are.  Doesn't the Coffee just POP?!  I love using craft foam with dies...I bought a bunch from J's the last time I placed an order.  Don't you love the sentiment...it's TRUE (wink!).  So the sentiment and the coffee cup are from the Verve Coffee set...designed by our own Chaitali Narla!  For those of you that don't know, Chaitali is the techie brains/master behind the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog and set up the FB group and all other techie things!

My card was inspired by Mojo Monday:


..and the Diva Inspiration Challenge:  Eat me, Drink me


Verve Stamps has been a FABulous Sponsor for all of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  Check it out, they're even giving away a set that releases on June 19th!


Whew, this is a ginormous post...and why I had 24 tabs open in my browser (LOL...I posted the question over on the FB group as to how many tabs people had open}.  So thanks for making it this far down into the post...I have a giveaway!

Check out the awesome Field Notebook I picked up at the Seattle Roastery:


Yes, I even picked up the menu's because, hey, we crafters can work magic with anything (wink).  The cover of the notebook is birch wood veneer...very coolio.



All you have to do is leave me a comment and a way to reach out to you in case you're the lucky duck!  Commenting will be open until Saturday, June 13th @ 11:59 pm pacific.  Winner to be posted sometime on my blog Sunday, June 14th!
