Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day Six/Post Two: oh happy day!






Hello!  Today is Day Six (post 2) 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!


I've been so inspired by all of the projects that have linked up to the hop!  I FINALLY inked up with awesome stamp by Tim Holtz


Oh Happy Day!

cardstock:  recollections/110/white, stampin' up night of navy, wausau/re-entry red  stamps:  stampers anonymous/freshly brewed blueprints  ink:  ranger/archival/black, distress ink barn door/pumic stone/tea dye, copic b39/prussian blue, r46/strong red, 0.38 red pen from muji, evalicious wood veneer

I cut strips of cardstock and adhered them for my left side panel.  Love the alternating red & blue, reminds me of one of my boy's ties.  Speaking of the boy, it's his last day of high school and it's definitely bittersweet for him.  I love that guy so much, heart of gold.

The veneer....yes, hoarded ferociously, but gah, I know I gotta use the cute stuff that I buy {wink}. 

I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches:


..and Colour me:



Yup, that's the tie that my boy has!

This card came together so quickly!  A combo of my excitement to ink up that awesome coffee stamp and the fabulous inspiring challenges!

Have you been hopping along?  There are so many AWESOME projects that have linked up to the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!
