Spring 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop


It's that time of year--the Spring 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!
I'm super excited because I'm having a giveaway! First, here's my card.


I die cut Paper Smooches take out coffee cup from watercolor card stock and
before ink distressing, taped the back side of the cup to keep the pieces intact.
The heart was die cut from the coffee sleeve portion of the cup, ink distressed,
then popped back in the space.


I paired the image with some striped patterned paper and the curved
sentiment from Simon Says Stamp. A few sprinkled coffee beans finished
off the card. Don't you just love that sentiment? It's so true.

* * *

And now for the giveaway! Do you like the Cozy Coffee die set that I used 
on my card? It's super cute and I love the coffee beans in the set.


All you have to do is leave a comment on this post, telling me if you are a  
coffee, tea, or cocoa lover--or all three! I'll add a few extra goodies to sweeten 
the giveaway. One comment per person, please, and international friends 
are welcome to enter.

The deadline to comment is Friday, March 31st at 11:59PM HST.
I'll announce the random winner a few days after the hop ends.

Big thanks to Amy and her helpers for coordinating another successful hop,
and thanks for stopping by!
