Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop

Hello and welcome!
Today I am joining my fellow coffee-loving card-making friends in the fun event Coffee Lovers Blog Hop (Spring Edition). As I am typing this post, I am having a cup of coffee! Paper crafting/blogging and coffee play a huge part in my daily life.

For my Spring-themed coffee/tea design, I used the new Penny Blacks' You and Me Stamp set.
http://shop.pennyblackinc.com/p/you-me/transparent-sets?pp=8
I chose the coffee/tea cup image and applied "Kissing" technique. The blue cup is more obvious with the Kissing technique. For the other cup, I mixed orange and pink colors, but the "kissing" effect is more subtle.
The images on the cups are from the flower/tree stamp (see the very top of the stamp).  I also stamped the the same flower/tree image on the top border.
you+me
Does this card make you feel like you are enjoying a cup of coffee in a Parisian cafe!? No?

The linking ends on Friday, March 6th @ 11:55 pm. so there is still a lot of time to be part of this. AND there are some awesome sponsors plus prizes form FLASH Sponsors  (will be awarded during the week of the hop)! For all the details about this hop, please see here (my link no is 128).

Thanks for stopping by!

fabulous Virginia. Lovely card. I'm not a coffee lover -like the smell but not the taste.... so maybe I'll pretend it's a hot cuppa herbal tea!
