Watercolor & Coffee Lovers Blog Hops

What a week! It was filled every night with games, concerts or working on the shower. Eek! It's in less than a week already. The centerpieces are finished, the games are ready, the prizes are wrapped, the paper products are purchased and the food is ready to be prepared. (Wonder if I have something to wear.)


I've definitely needed a lot of my coffee this week to keep going. There are 2 new blog hops this weekend that I really wanted to participate in. One is the Pretty Pink Posh Watercolor Blog Hop that Paulina is hosting and the other is the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop hosted by Amy Tsuruta. 

In between shower preparations today, I decided I needed to make something for these two great hops. I managed to create one card that I will enter into both. At the Rubber Stamp show I recently attended, I purchased the Tim Holtz Coffee Mini Blueprints stamp set. I heat embossed the coffee cup with black EP and used my Vintage Photo Distress Marker and a water brush to watercolor the coffee cup. The panel was watercolored with Peeled Paint and Broken China DI. I then die cut the panel with Mama Elephant Landscape Trio dies and adhered it to a Neenah card base. The sentiment is from an Amuse set. I also added some PPP sequins.









Ok, back to work for me. I still need to finish Father's Day and Graduation cards. I'll share some soon. The weekend is flying by. Enjoy!

  21. I'm tired just reading about all the things you have been - and have done - doing for the upcoming shower. It's going to be a most marvelous event! Your card: is ah-mazing! Love the water-coloured background; perfect canvas for the image! You probably do have something to wear to the shower but I say go get something new. You deserve a treat!
