Gopher A Coffee?

I am so excited as today is the first day of the 2017 Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. And, it is also my birthday as I have been knocking on the door for a couple years now and today I got to enter into the 70's Club. Yup! I am now officially 70 years old and to tell the truth I don't feel any different from yesterday. And birthday cards began coming already in May and in the last few days I have gotten so many and so therefore, I feel very blessed indeed. Thanks to all who sent me greetings.



I just love this little guy and this is from a stamp set by Gerda Steiner Designs called Gopher It. The little guy comes without the glasses but there is the option to add them so I chose to do so. I also used some Glossy Accents on the lenses to make them look more realistic. My design was colored with Zig Clear Color pens.Then I die cut the design out with Gina K. Designs Double Stitched Rectangle Die and placed it on another  black layer die cut with a Gina K. Designs Single Stitched Rectangle Die before adding it to the card base.

I will not be making quite as many cards this time around for the hop but I still wanted to participate a little bit. I hope many of you will find time to enter a few to the hop too.

I wish you all a wonderful weekend.  Some of my family will be spending time with me to help me celebrate so I might be pretty occupied. But that's okay too! Thanks for visiting and for all your wonderful comments.

God bless,
Verna

Happy, Happy Belated Birthday, Verna! You encourage me with your great attitude about aging, and I say the same thing every year: I don't feel a bit older! Wishing you good health and lots of fun. Love your card..."punny" sentiments are always a favorite. I agree that the little guy looks great in glasses, and the hint of shine is perfect!
