Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Day 1!




I can't believe today is the day!  Today is the start of the week long Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  We have 57 Super Sponsors, that's an increase from 51 from the Spring Hop!  I absolutely love our fabulous Paper Crafting Community!

Make sure you check out the hop post HERE.  You have until Friday, June 24th at 11:55 pm pacific to link up to be eligible for prizes!

Let's get started, shall we?  I wanted to whip up a card that screams summer:


How about a cool + refreshing Frap?  I'm going to name this a Pina Colada Frap...green + yellow = 💚  

I used the MFT Cool Cup Die-namics and combined it with Stay Cool sentiment set.  Do you spy the On the Go embossing folder?

I can't wait to see the Hop Gallery!  One of my favorite things to do is comment on all of the projects that link up!  I hope that you join us in the FUN!
