I got to play with a stamp set that I have had for a while but have never used. I love the style of this set but wasn't quite sure how to use it so I went to Pinterest for some inspiration. I found many lovely examples but this one really caught my attention. I loved the muted colors in this example of the emboss resist technique. I added a ribbon and used a "thank you" sentiment for my cards.

This card was made for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop 2016. Coffee,. coffee, Coffee... is aal I talk about at work until that 2nd cup kicks in. Those that know me, know that I love my coffee and that "decaf" is actually a curse word to me. My family is of a Caribbean heritage where as a child is weened off the bottle or breast, the coffee introduction begins.
This card was made in celebration of coffee. It is a simple design but for any coffee lover I think the image and sentiments speak for them selves.
Stamps: Better with You, Coffee Together - Verve
Paper: VV, Daffodil Delight, DSP
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Garden Green
Accessories: Verve Coffee Cup die, Corner Rounder Punch, Glitter Gel Pen

In the past few days the temperatures here have been above freezing, even a couple of times in the high 50's. The great amount of snow that was rapidly dumped on us over a week ago is melting into large puddles and streams. I think this week should be titled "The Great Thaw of 2016".
This is the last card that I made during the Blizzard of 2016. I CASE'd it from this card. It was nice having an extended weekend with no where to go and nothing to do except drink coffee, watch Netflix, and make cards.
