Hot Love

Hello Everybody!

I am SO glad you have joined me today, on the very last day of the Spring and Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop! All week long, I have been loving all the amazing coffee inspiration and ideas. There have really been some outstanding designs here in 2018! You can still link up your coffee themed projects, and be entered to win some amazing prizes over at the Coffee Loving carmakers blog right here: http://coffeelovingcardmakers.com/2018/05/2018-spring-summer-coffee-lovers-blog-hop/

The card I made today is for my hubbbie, Mr. Crimson Owl! Mr. Crimson Owl, also known as Aaron, and I have quite a few things in common. We are both graduates from the University of Alabama! He earned a BA and I earned my MA at the home of the Crimson Tide! Our official alma mater colors are crimson and white, along with the famous black and white houndstooth every Bama fan has in their closet somewhere! We share a love for Crimson Tide football, golf, our feline sons, coffee ice cream and m&m’s! Since we moved to Florida’s beautiful Treasure Coast recently, I have been teasing him that this is the perfect place to be, on those days when he is just a little bit crabby! He’s embraced his crabby self with joyful glee! So my card had to have a little blue crab on it, just for him!

I am so sad to see this amazing hop draw to a close, so let’s perk things up with some blog candy! Simply leave a comment on this post, or on any of my posts from this week’s Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, and you might be randomly selected to win a little blog candy, from me to you!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Helloooooo Coffee

Hello Everybody!

The Spring and Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop will be drawing to a close soon, but I am already thinking about coffee ideas for the fall and winter! All of the inspiration and ideas that I’ve seen so far this week have been amazing, and there will be so much more before the hop concludes tomorrow. You can get all the details and link up your own coffee themed card at the Coffee Loving Carmakers Blog right here: http://coffeelovingcardmakers.com/2018/05/2018-spring-summer-coffee-lovers-blog-hop/

Today, my card says Hellooooooo Coffee! I love those mornings when I am up early, and the entire day stretches out  ahead of me! I can take my time and read the paper, have a little cup from my Keurig, and slowly greet the world. But most mornings aren’t anything like that, really!

So today, and on every coffee themed blog post from the Coffee Lovers Bloghop, I am saying, thanks for dropping by! Let me get you a coffee! Simply leave a comment and you might be randomly selected to win a little coffee blog candy!

Thanks so much for joining me today!

You can get all the details, link up your amazing coffee themed card, see loads of inspiration and ideas, and win some fabulous prizes over at the Coffee Loving Carmakers Blog right here: http://coffeelovingcardmakers.com/2018/05/2018-spring-summer-coffee-lovers-blog-hop/

For my springy Coffee Loving card, I actually combined a number of crafty techniques! I started with a watercolor background panel, then heat embossed an abstract floral and leaf pattern in antique gold. I stamped and embossed the sentiment in antique gold, then added the flowers, butterfly, and coffee cup along with a few sequins and voila!

Thank you so much or joining me today!
