Sip by Sip! - Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hi!  A whole lot of us paper crafters are joining Amy Tsuruta in the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  It's a fun way for us to kick off summer...sit back with your coffee or tea and hop from one blog to the next!  And.....you just might want to play along.  There are lots of prizes to win!
Just click on Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop to start at the beginning of the hop.  :)


I had fun using several fun, bright, summery colors for my card!


I pulled out a fun, summer themed Stampin' Up! rubber stamp to create my background.  A drew a few pencil lines, diagonally, to guide me in stamping that fun background.  The sentiment is computer generated.  I found a similar quote online, but it said "life" instead of summer.  I wasn't able to find the original source or credit of the quote.
The lid of the coffee cup was die cut, then coated with Glossy Accents.  My attempt to make it resemble a plastic lid.  It sort of does...don't you think???

I had fun with this summer themed card, even though it took me several days to make it.  It was just one of those weeks!
