Day 1 Coffee Loving Cardmakers Spring Blog Hop

I'm squeaking in by the skin of my teeth to get a Day 1 post in for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  It's all about papercrafters who love coffee, tea and cocoa.   Count me in for all three!

So, I ran home from work and started on this springy card because I'm obviously a procrastinator and wait until the last minute.... or maybe, I'm just swamped?  Yeah, that would be it!  Anyway, this card features coffee stamps from So Suzy Stamps and lovely papers from DCWV called Garden Charm.  I've also got some DoubleClick Skittles bubble embellishments, sequins from The Ton and burlap string from May Arts Ribbon/The Ribbon Resource.  

The coffee stain stencil is from The Crafters Workshop and my inks are Tim Holtz Brushed Corduroy distress ink.  

It's "charming", don't you think? 

There's a boatload of sponsors who give lovely prizes to those who participate by linking up and I just so happen to be on the design teams of several so I'm a little partial to them, two of which are featured on this card.  Can you guess?

If you'd like to join in, follow the link below and add your creation to the Inlinkz at the bottom of the post.  Friday, May 25th is the last day of the hop.

Now, if you stuck around long enough, you'll see that I absolutely cannot let a fabulous blog hop like this go by without doing something special, so I'm going to be giving away a little blog candy via random draw to those who comment on this post or any other posts that I link up this week.

How does a $10 Starbucks gift card sound?  Good luck!

Additional supplies:
Tombow mono Aqua glue
foam squares
Xyron adhesive runner
Lil Inker Designs oval stitched mat die
