Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

.


Hey, there's something going on over at Coffee Loving Cardmakers.  And I want to play too.  I don't drink coffee, but guess what, it's more about the friendships around that cup of Joe or Tea or Hot Cocoa.

The theme is "Spring" and who can't do something springy with the change in weather?  I used a combination of stamps and dies that I thought would work well together. And I can't believe those single letter are fairly well spaced and level.  This never happens for me.  Woohooo - you see it this once; you may never see it again.  And I'm very pleased with my cup.  A little off on the reflections, but I am leaving it alone.

I'm on the Design Team for a2z Scrapbooking and here's a little information about the company.
a2z Scrapbooking Supplies was started in 2007 to raise funds for causes including Celiac Disease, Camp Gluten Freedom and Behcets. The main focus is charitable giving and the company is run by volunteers. a2z Scrapbooking carries Hero Arts products and is the exclusive seller of Hero Arts digital stamps.

Hope you enjoyed the card and have fun.  If you'd like you can use my code Arlene15 at

The way you've positioned the tea cup to peek through the squares gives it such an illusion of depth! Super cool!

I'm not sure if my comment went through. I'll just repeat a small portion and let you know I think it's a nice card, I don't have straight letters either and thanks for volunteering for a good cause.
