Coffee Lovers Hop Take 2

Good morning!!!  

Hopefully you are enjoying your cup of coffee this morning.  

I'm here to share another project I created for the coffee lovers blog hop.  

Spring Hop 2017

While going through a stack of paper I had from a paper swap,
 I found this sweet tea cup patterned paper. 
I decided that I would use it for a project for this hop.  
My only issue was that the color was too muted and I wanted to brighten up the project,  

In that same stack of paper I found this awesome green paper,  
I knew right away it was going to be a great combination of patterns and colors. 

I punched out the border and then laid the paper across the tea cup patterns and realized I did not like how the pattern was showing through,   

After going through different options I decided to us a strip of vellum paper to soften the pattern just behind the punched border.  

I wanted to keep everything simple and let the pattern paper do the work.  
I just went with this simple sentiment from the Unity company and added a vellum stamped rose. 

Speaking of Unity.   I will be showcasing Unity projects next week.  
Try to stop by because there will be a blog candy.  

Hope you have a wonderful day


I will be entering this project into the following challenges

Perk Up

Hello there.

Hope everyone is well.  

There is a lot of fun activities going on around blog land these days.

Spring Hop 2017

I have worked on a few projects for this hop to share.

For my first project I wanted to make something a little masculine because I wanted to combine the project with a challenge from the Rubbernecker Stamps.

For me this one was easy.   
At Christmas I picked up this great truck image. 
 It is a Christmas set but I thought this truck would be very useful.   
I did use it on some Valentine day cards.  

The cup image and sentiment is from the Greeting Farm.  

I just love the though of this old fashioned truck showing up with that giant cup of coffee.
Especially on Monday morning.  

Hope you find some time to hop.  

Thanks for dropping by
