I am back with a card for Amy Tsuruta's Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. In case you are not familiar with this event, there are tons of stops on the hop with lots of coffee (and other hot beverage) goodness and inspiration.....and tons of prizes, too. Some prizes you can win by leaving a comment (like right here on my blog entry)...and some you win by entering a springy, hot beverage-themed project. The hop is open for comments and entries through Friday, March 6, 2015. So.....grab a cup and join in!!!!
I'll be sharing some extra coffee cat photos today. I hope you enjoy them.
Last Coffee Lovers Hop, back in October, I was lucky enough to win a Stamplorations coffee (and other beverage)-themed stamp set (Eat Drink Be Merry), so naturally I wanted to use it for this hop. :) (THANKS, Stamplorations, for being such a generous sponsor!!)
I decided a big sunrise would be perfect for a springy coffee card. Recently, I was wowed by Dawn Heald's fabulous technique for making these sun rays. I had to try it!! It's such a fun and easy technique and.....uses scraps....YAY!!! :) I dry embossed them with my Darice - Interlocking Circles folder...and inked them with Distress Ink - Mustard Seed and Worn Lipstick to give the dry embossing a little bit more definition. I added some thrift store lace and bling for fun. Hope you like it. :)
Okay, now for a little RAK giveaway to sweeten up your day. I'll try to make it more appealing than the little RAKs I find on my back door mat from my outside cats!!! Ha. How does this look?
Okay....to enter the random drawing for this little prize, please leave a comment here on this post indicating to me that you would like to win this prize and PLEASE LEAVE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS (in code is fine) by 11:59 pm PDT Sunday, March 8, 2015. If I don't have an email address for you, I can't notify you that you have won. If I can't notify you, I will have to redraw. I don't want you to miss out!
Thanks so much for stopping by. I appreciate all your kind comments. Did you know I also have another RAK going on? It's on my Unity FWF post. Hey, it's my birthday today and I can de-stash if I want to!! :)
Here's one more coffee cat for you:
Have a lovely day and beginning of your weekend!!!

Okay, one last shot for you. My craft table has been taken over by Mount Heap-opotamoose, so sorry for the mess. This is the coffee mug I am using today. I have a big collection of kitty mugs to choose from, but the Le Chat ones are some of my faves.
