Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Final Day!


Friday, already?  I was able to post one card a day during the hop.  I wish I could have made more projects, but there just isn't enough time in the day to get everything done!  I noticed there were several crafters that way exceeded daily postings ----> YAY!

Okay, let's get to it, eh?!

I always make it way too difficult to pick my supplies for hop cards.  I want to showcase so many of the Super Sponsors but it isn't always easy to do that.  Here's a post that captures a couple different Super Sponsors.

First up is Lawn Fawn:


I combined the Stuck on You set with the Love you a Latte set!  With a smidge of masking it all works pretty well together, don't you agree?

love you a latte

stuck on you

Lawn Fawn is one of our Super Sponsors!  Link up for a chance to win their Lawn Fawn Gift Pack!


Do you see the tiny heart enamel...oh I miss Chickaniddy Crafts!  Check out the sheen on that gorgeous cardstock...I LOVE it.



My green cardstock base is from Impress and it is Bazzill's Fairway. It's incredibly beautiful and really, I wish you could see the sheen...it's amazing.


Impress is a Super Sponsor!  Link up for a chance to win an Impress clear stamp set!



The inks I used on the cacti =  Hero Arts Ombre:

tide pool to navy

Lime to Forever Green

lime to forever green


Light purple to grape juice

Hero Arts is one of our Super Sponsors!  Link up for a chance to win a $25 Hero Arts Shopping Spree!


Whew!  Lastly, I spotted that Kim Heggins used Strathmore Mixed Media paper...we exchanged some emails and here I am, using the Mixed Media pad that I squirreled away that I received from the fabulous Tonya of The Heart Desires ---> who also happens to be a Super Sponsor!  Link up for a chance to win a $20 Gift card to her shop!  Thanks ladies!!!!



Okay, that's all for me today on the blog!
