Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Final Day!

Today is the final day of the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  What is that?  It's a quarterly hop that follows the seasons (Summer, Fall, Winter + Spring).  That also determines the theme of your projects.  Make sure you check out the hop post HERE.  There are 77 Super Sponsors!  To be eligible for any of the prizes upload a newly created Summer themed project that includes coffee, tea and/or cocoa!

If you aren't a member already, you should check out the Coffee Loving Papercrafters FB group.  It is filled with the nicest how helpful and encouraging everybody is!

Here's a card that I whipped up last night:

Check out that cute Coffee Cup Stamp!  It's from Impress and comes with the sentiment, thanks a latte.

I've teamed it up with the following Flora & Fauna sets:

I used the following Impress Fresh Inks:

I colored the sleeve in with Zig Clean Color Markers.

Generally I would have used the Thanks a Latte sentiment but I'm back to building up a birthday stash of cards.

Big Shout Out to both Impress + Flora & Fauna for being Super Sponsors.  They are locally based companies and I can tell you, they are truly FABulous people.

As of right now, there are 947 Lovely Link ups to the Summer Hop.  Things are going to be super close, we always try to beat our previous record which was the Spring Hop of 1,178.

I hope to have a wrap up post on Sunday but did want to Thank everybody for their sweet comments and support.  These hops have turned into something bigger than I would have ever imagined💚
