Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop


It’s about time I post my card for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  I’ve had my card made, but life happens.

There are tons of fantastic sponsors again this time around and that means lots of prizes!!!  Have you made your card yet and linked it up?!  You have until Friday, March 6, at 11:55 p.m. to do so!  You can find all the details here!

I used a bright yellow watercolor as a background for my coffee themed card as well as some little pink flower sequins to go along with the spring theme.

I used the adorable new Daily Brew set from Ms. Kimm Creates.  For ink, I used SU’s Soft Suede, a color that is becoming a favorite of mine all over again lately.

After I and DS3 fell ill with the good ole “stomach flu” over the past two days, I’m finally feeling more like myself (although, coffee doesn’t sound good quite yet!) and ready to tackle life again.  I must admit, I’m feeling a bit OCD when it comes to disinfecting things around the house with bleach water!  This stuff is one of the trickier viruses to get rid of, surviving on surfaces for days rather than hours.  DS3 will be staying home again tomorrow as his appetite isn’t quite back to normal yet and I don’t want to send him back to school contagious!  Holding my breath for the rest of the family!

I hope you’ve had a wonderful Wednesday!

    Hope you're all feeling better now, Melissa. DH was down last week with it – so NOT fun!! Your beautiful yellow watercolor is just what those of us in the Northern Hemisphere so desperately need right now – hints of Spring. LOVE your sweet little cup too. Perfectly CAS and a true delight!
