It's Coffee and Tea Lover's Blog Hop!

It's time for some coffee, tea, or cocoa and papercrafting!!!! These seasonal hops are always so much fun and it all could not be possible without a TON of effort from the team at Coffee Loving Cardmakers and a whole lot of Super Sponsors. Thank you all for your hard work and support. 

Today I'm posting with products from Super Sponsor Stampendous. They have such a fun array of coffee, tea, and cocoa stamps and some new ones like the one on my card today. Stop by their blog for details on prizes. You didn't hear it from me, but it involves lots of coffee!

Here's my spring/summer theme card! 

That cute little mug is Curio Coffee Friend Rubber Stamp, and the super neat thing is it also doubles as your studio decor! Take a look...

That's it on my blog today, but if you're interested in the details of my card keep on reading.
Otherwise, thank you for stopping by and happy hopping!!!!!
