Hello stampy friends!

SpringCoffeeLoversBH-011-640x430

I’m so excited to be playing with the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, organized by the AH-MAZING Amy Tsuruta.  Amy has pulled it off again – working day and night to organize a super fun coffee-themed hop, as well as gathering some fantastic prizes from our over the top awesome sponsors!!   You can find all of the details on how to win the sponsored prizes over at the new Coffee LovingCardmakers Blog.  Here’s my card:

Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop 2-27-15

I had some fun with inlaid die cutting!  This Teapot Stack die from Memory Box/Poppy Stamps reminded me of the collectible tea pots that Crate & Barrel sells.  They’re always so fun and interesting.  So I pulled four different papers from the XO Collection by KaiserCraft.  I thought they all had a sweet “country cottage” look to them, and they coordinated perfectly!  The sentiment is from the new Tea Time stamp set by Avery Elle – just released yesterday!  That stamp set was perfect for this die cut, don’t you think?  I’ve listed the products that I used below, if you’re interested.

ETA:  I've added to the fun by offering up a little sumpin' sumpin' to the sweet peeps that stop buy and comment on THIS post during the hop (ends March 6th)!  Please leave a comment here on my blog for a chance to win Tea Time, the new stamp set and coordinating dies from Avery Elle.  Here's what they look like:



We’d love to have you join in on the fun!  You can find all of the details about how to play along and win prizes, as well as the entire InLinkz list of hoppers, over at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog!!  You can link up starting Friday, February 27th at 6:00 am PST, and you have through March 6th to link up!  You can also find the list of sponsors and prizes HERE and HERE.

That’s it for me today, friends!  I’m headed to lunch with my BFF and then we’ll do a little shopping.  I also hope to get a little crafting done this weekend!  I hope you all have a great weekend ahead!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
