Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Final Project

Well, I guess there's no getting around it ... it's time to say goodbye to the Spring/Summer 2018 Coffee Lovers Bloghop!  I mean... you still have a few hours left to play along if you wish, but this is my last one.  You can check it out here if you think you might be able to play along this time or if you want to check it out for the next time!  I'm ending where I began and playing along with some Little Acres Creations along with a couple others:


One of my favorite coffee cards to make is one that is made with sets that are not coffee related... and these cuties from Little Acres were not created to be added to a coffee card!  But here they are!

I started by doing some quick ink blending of blue for the sky and green for the ground.   Then I cut my first layer using the CDD Crazy Stitched Frames because I love that little bit of detail it gives.


I knew I wanted these guys to be flying over some trees or something and then I remembered the Perfect Blend stamp set from Sugar Pea Designs and that it had these awesome coffee bean trees on it, so I thought they'd be perfect!  It's a Coffee Bean Tree Orchard they are floating above!


And what really started this whole idea was this cool new stamp set from Little Acres, Balloon Alphabet.  I knew I wanted to use these for a coffee card of some sort and then when I thought of these cuties:


Love these baby animals from the Stinkin Cute set that was released last month!  And I decided they'd be just the sort to cheer someone up that needed it.  So I tied the balloon letters to them and set them off to do their job!  And I decided that the sentiment from the Piles of Smiles set would be just right here.  I just may have been inspired by my teamie Julie's card from earlier in the month... you can (and should) check that out here when you're done visiting with me!


Aren't they so cute!!??  That little lamb just looks confused... and the horsey's just going along with it.  I drew the balloon lines and then also drew some lines and tiny bows around the animals too!


And this guy is so excited... I'm not sure he even needs the balloon to keep him up in the air... but it's there just in case...

And on the inside I used some more beans from the Sugar Pea set and these sentiments from Honey Bee's Blah Blah Blah Stamp Set... love that set!


I'm playing along with the Outlawz Twisted Thursday with a Twist of Anything Goes this week... and I'm pretty sure this is Anything!

SO... that's that.  Another one in the books.  I've had SO much fun this hop!  I wish I could have fit in every stamp set I have ...lol!  But I'll be working on it so come back soon if you like what you see here!

Happy Making!!  And if you happen to be one of the Awesome Sponsors of this hop, thank you so much for your generosity!!  The creating... the inspiration.. the friendships... and the awesome prizes... some of the most fun I've had, I've had with my fellow caffeinated drink lovers (and yes, those who drink.... decaf... yuck... sorry... it just comes out like that... but I won't hold it against you!)
