Coffee Card #1

Time once again for the 2020 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I don't know if I will make very many cards but at least I have one to enter. You have this week to join in and the information is along the right side of my blog.



I downloaded the free Coffee Bloom print offered by Stamplorations and then printed it out. I made a  background for it by using an Artplorations stencil called Rubber Bands and my blending brushes. Then I stamped several sentiments from the Stamplorations Coffee Happy stamp set.  After I had the coffee cup colored I fussy cut it out and then popped it up onto the card base with the stenciled design. The last element added was some purple flower sequins.

I am also entering this to the Stamplorations Never Ending Anything Goes challenge.



Have a great weekend everyone. We went and  put flowers on the graves tonight and then did a drive through at Dairy Queen afterwards for our supper. That was a nice outing. Other then that I don't have any plans for Memorial Day. Most of the services will be online I think.

Oh, and we got our stimulus money in the form of a debit card. One card for the two of us and since we wanted to divide it up we took the option of going to the bank and cashing it in. We put half of it  into our individual checking accounts. This way I know that my share will be used for groceries and other items. His will be used for things he normally pays for.

Take care and God bless,
Verna

Love that cool background and wouldn't it be lovely to drink your morning coffee out of such a pretty mug! No plans here either. We have two birthdays this weekend but storms are suppose to be coming in so we didn't plan any outdoor activities.

what a wonderful card Verna - love your colours and use of the stencil.
We have not got a stimulus package as you have, but as a 'pensioner' I do get a doubled winter allowance for extra heating costs this year. It probably adds up to much the same :)
Stay safe
