I Hope This Perks You Up

Here I thought I was doing SO well by posting one card every day of the Spring Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop.  But, no, I'm quite behind apparently.......there are people posting loads of "cards" all in a row each day.  Yup!  Well, I don't roll like that.  As long as I'm able to enter once a day and be happy with what I've created, I'm fine with that.  To be honest, I do wish they would make some sort of limit on entries, but....not my challenge, not my blog, not my decision.  So, onward and upward.  It's all good.
This card was created using patterned papers from one of my favorite (and most hoarded) Crate Paper lines of all time.....Emma's Shoppe.  It's precious, and you can't find it anywhere any more.  Believe me...I've looked, and when I do find it, I buy it ALL!  I even ordered some from Australia!  LOL   I also used a doily, and the tea cup and steam are Sweet Cuts from Paper Sweeties in their sweet new Keep Calm and Drink Coffee set.  The sentiment is also from the Keep Calm and Drink Coffee stamp set.

I used Oatmeal Seam Binding to create my bow, and topped it with a chipboard button with some twine tied through it.  The sticker border is also from Emma's Shoppe.  I just LOVE all of the fabulous new coffee themed sets this month from Paper Sweeties.  The steam was stamped and die-cut three times from vellum and I layered them.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog.  I'm always SO grateful to have you visit and leave a comment.  I've enjoyed hopping through the entire list of entries and plan to keep up with it.  I've seen some really amazing cards.   It's always super inspiring.

Have a blessed day!
Karen

  14. I know what you mean about limiting entries - when you are only able to enter once, as I will be, the odds are stacked against you a bit - but never mind... God has it all under control!! love your card, and the paper pieced cup looks so delicate !!
    Blessings
