Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hi there! Welcome to the 3rd Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. This time we are celebrating Coffee and Spring... Hang on a minute, I spend so much time communicating with all my Northern Hemisphere
crafters, I tend to forget what season I'm in. Yep it's nearly Autumn down this part of the world so I made a card that fits either season I think.



I hope this doesn't look too amateurish, but I had this idea to put the bird in my coffee and so I had to freehand the cup to suit. I used Distress ink pad and markers, my favourite Fabriano watercolour paper and stamps from Penny Black and Stamplorations




                          ETA:    I'm entering this in the Simon Wednesday Anything Goes challenge and the                                          Simon Monday No Rules challenge.

  6. Oh this is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.
    I've been sketching cups and mugs to create something with but wasn't sure if I wanted to use them. Your design has encouraged me to go ahead and give them a try.
