Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day Three: this girl runs on coffee







We're on Day Three of the Spring Hop and it's so much fun!  Have you hopped?  Have you linked up?  Remember, to be eligible for one of the many prizes from the 50 Super Sponsors, you must link up a newly created Spring Themed project that incorporates Coffee, Tea &/or Cocoa images/elements.  So super easy smeasy AND fun!

I have a fun retro card to share today.  I pulled out a pack of 'The Best of' Crate Paper that I picked up at M's long time ago.  It's a ginormous 8.5 x 11 inch stack.  I kept thinking I 'should' go with a floral print but I kept coming back to the retro roller skates:


I combined The Ton's Hug in a Mug with their Coffee Word Die.  Do you spy the Strawberry Fields Couture mix?  Yup, it's a shaker!  I used gold thread and the peach strips?  It's washi♡


Check out my The Ton supplies:

 I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches:


I've been having so much fun spending the last couple of days with the girl.  I'll be spending all day crafting to make up for it ---> like that's a bad thing...win-win on my part.

  3. Thee perfect choice! Love this trendy design. Have you roller skated lately? Awesome workout for the thighs! Of course, I have extra padding for when I fall, but the few times I've gone with the boys recently, it has been fun! Thanks for being a great hostess.
