Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop #8

Well I am back again with my 8th card for the Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop. I made this card this evening after working and thinking about what I was going to make all day. I do not always like all my cards (I am my own worse critic) but I am happy with this one.

I saw a new challenge today at Tuesday Throwdown to use a creative border. I thought on it awhile and decided to make my own border with the negative space after I die cut the word "coffee" from along the bottom od my yellow cardstock. I then backed it up with navy blue cardstock so the border would really pop.

I used this sketch from Newton's Nook and I am entering this card in their Inky Paws Challenge #49:

I used a sweet little stamp that I won in a previous Coffee Lovers Bloghop from Stamplorations called  Coffee For All Seasons. I embellished one of the coffee cups with a sweet little hibiscus puffy sticker to make it that much more summery. I am entering this card in the Stamplorations Never Ending Anything Goes Challenge

But....getting back to the Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop -- I am really excited about this bloghop...there are 77 sponsors and TONS of prizes, inspiration and freebies. Just enter a summer themed, coffee themed card on THIS post for a chance to enter. And do not forget to check out all the other entries...many have blog candy. And speaking blog candy....I have a small blog candy prize. I recently won a prize from Latina Crafters I got an extra stamp to give away along with a package of my favorite post it notes ever from Cocoa Daisy. To be eligible to win this little prize just enter a card in the hop and leave the number of your entry in a comment on this or any other of my summer coffee lovers blog hop posts. I will pick and post a winner on Sunday evening July 2. Here is the prize I am offering:

Well, that is it for tonight....I will be trying to make another coffee themed card tomorrow night after work so if I succeed, I will meet you back here about the same time.

Thanks for dropping in.
