Special Friend Blend – Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Special Friend Blend – Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

PrintHi crafty friends … and coffee lovers near and far!  I love a Saturday when I find myself ‘relatively caught up with my to do list’ and have a little time to get my craft on just for fun!  It doesn’t happen that often, so I treasure these little moments when I can play with pretty little bits and bobs ‘just because’!


I found the Coffee Lover’s Spring Blog Hop for the very first time yesterday while enjoying some pretty inspiration around town on Instagram and Facebook … where have I been living … apparently under a rock!  This theme is right up my coffee and tea lovin’ alley!  I’m still savoring the last little bits of my favorite holiday peppermint coffee each morning … soooo, yummy!  {click on photos for larger view}


So, I sat down at my craft desk, pulled out some of my favorite colors of papers and embellishments … and of course a couple of yummy coffee/tea related stamps and dies and got busy!  Aqua and pink is my all-time favorite color combo to use when I make little handmade goodies, so this one came together quick and easy for me … it was so much fun to whip up!


The sentiment tag can reference the blend of the coffee along with the sweet cupcake – a perfect pairing in my world … or it can reference the blend of some delicious spring mix sequins my sweet friend, Taheerah, sent to me from Pretty Posh Pink this past holiday – mixed with some yummy colors of sequins from the Paper Sweeties boutique.  This card takes me to my ultimate happy place … I hope it makes you smile too!

Stamp supply list:  Tea For Two, Sending Sweet Thoughts, Pretty Posies, Hand Stamped by (sentiment on back of card)

Die supply list: Tea For Two Sweet Cuts, Sending Sweet Thoughts Sweet Cuts, Pretty Posies Sweet Cuts

Embellishment supply list: Cookie Dough Sequins, Cotton Candy Sequins, Marshmallow Sequins, Robin Egg Baker’s Twine

Hugs – xoxox

    Well now, THAT is a super cute card! Not to worry about that rock… I’ve known about each hop and every single time (except this one), I’ve missed the cut off to link up (smacking forehead)! Nice to have a newbie with me 🙂
