It's the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Time Again!!!



It's one of my favorite events of the year....it is time for the
Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.
This hop only happens twice a year now because it has grown into such a HUGE thing....tons of sponsors, and prizes. There will be hundreds, even thousands of projects linked up and the talent is amazing. Many thanks to Amy Tsuruta and her team for the many hours of work and planning to pull this off. I am glad this is a holiday weekend because I will want to spend a lot of time checking out everyone's projects. I have been hard at work all week on my projects for the hop and I can hardly wait to share them with you. This is the first one that I want to share:
.



My goal for this hop is to try to use all the stamps and coffee themed products in my stash that I have not yet used. I got this Newton's Nook stamp set gifted to me at Christmas last year and while I have used the image before, I had not inked up the two sentiments. I am entering it not only in the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop but also in the Inky Paws Challenge at Newton's Nook. It was fun to go looking through my huge stash of buttons for this challenge. I had not used a button on a project in a LONG time.

I used this fun sketch from Kerry Urbatch:
I am entering this card in the Sunday Sip and Share link up also....you can see the details HERE. Every Sunday I look forward to Kerry's sketch and the card she created. She inspires me.

There are not only great sponsor prizes this week for the blog, but there are many blog and Instagram giveaways as well. I have my own giveaway. I will be drawing one comment from all the comments left this week and the lucky commenter will receive this little prize package.






That is it for now....I will be back this evening to share another coffee themed project. Thanks for popping in.

Week 20


I have been playing along with the 52 Week Favorites at Paper Issues and documenting my favorite part of each week. This past weekend, I got up early on Saturday to watch the Royal Wedding and thoroughly enjoyed it. I downloaded some pictures from the internet and used this sketch from
Let's Get Sketchy for my 6x8 page:
It was a bit challenging scaling down the sketch but I enjoyed the challenge and am pleased with the way the page turned out.

Thanks for checking out my blog....I appreciate the kind comments.

Magic Moments






I m still working on my granddaughters' Disney album from our trip nearly a year ago. I found the perfect sketch for this page at Let's Get Sketchy. Here is their May 1st sketch:


They are collaborating this month with Paper Issues with their sketch....how cool is that? Paper Issues is my favorite online group for inspiration and fun chatter. And the Paper Issues shop that Cassie Box runs is THE BEST!!
That is about it for now....it is off to work I go. Happy Monday!

Coffee Makes You Sharper



I love purple but rarely use it in my crafting so I was excited to see the color challenge for Newton's Nook this time included two shades of purple:

I am entering it in their Color Challenge #71 and also in the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #271 because I used their sketch this week:

That's it for tonight....thank goodness tomorrow is Friday. I live for my weekends.

Wishing You a Magical Day


I love when a card sketch sticks in my head and get the creative wheels spinning. The sketch that inspired this card did just that. Here is the Sketch-n-Scrap sketch:



I created the background with thin glitter washi tape from Cocoa Daisy. The cute unicorn image and sentiment in from Avery Elle.

I am entering this card in the sketch challenge at the Sketch-n-Scrap blog.
Details can be seen HERE.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I appreciate your comments.

Caffeinated Hugs







I just love Kerry Urbatch's sketches that are featured every Sunday on the
Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog. I have not had a chance to play with them the last couple of months but I am determined to make a card with every sketch this month. This is the sketch from April 1st:

I absolutely loved this inspiration photo from the Inspired By blog:



Not only was I inspired by the blue and white them but also by the thick cable knit blanket. If you look closely at the coozie on my coffee cup, it has the same cable knit pattern. I love that stamp set by Brutus Monroe and it was the first time I inked up that coffee cup and that sentiment. I am entering this card in Laurel Seabrook's Inspired By Rainy Day Coziness Challenge.


I just realized that because I added three black enamel dots, I can also enter this card in the
Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Trio of Something Challenge.


Thanks for stopping by my blog....I hope your weekend was as good as mine was...ugh, I REALLY do not want to go back to work tomorrow.
