Lawnscaping Coffee Blog Hop!


Hi Everyone! I'm so excited to be participating in the Lawnscaping Challenges JUNE Coffee Blog hop today! You should have just arrived from Coralynn's Blog and if you have you are exactly where you should be! If not, be sure to go back to the beginning at the Lawnscaping Challenge Blog for ALL the details and begin the hop. If you encounter any errors along the hop, please email Laurel directly at laurelbeard at me dot com. Please do not leave them in the comments.


For my card, I had to be a bit creative since I didn't have any specific coffee stamps from Lawn Fawn even though they have a couple super cute ones! So, I pulled out one of my Favorite Lawn Fawn Stamp Sets ( Feathered Friends) and Violet's ABC's to create my own custom sentiment. I also used some stamps from Sweet Stamp Shop to help me along with the coffee theme. ;)

I am loving watercoloring right now, so I stamped all of my images with Tsukineko Versafine Onyx Black ink on Canson 140lb Hot Pressed Watercolor Paper. Then I colored everything with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush watercolor pens. For an accent, I used some Pretty Pink Posh Summer Mix Sequins. I matted my image panel on some Lawn Fawn Pint-Sized Patterns 6x6 Paper (Beachside) and that completed my card! I hope you enjoyed!! 

Now for some details about the hop. Prizes?! Yes!! We have lots of sponsors, which means lots of prizes so encourage commenting because winners will be chosen by unique comments left on the hoppers blogs. (What I mean by unique, is no copy and pasting the same comment over and over.) You have until the end of the day on June 28th to get their comments we. We are Eastern Standard Time so 11:59PM EST, June 28th. Winners will be announced on the Lawnscaping blog later that week.



Here is the full list of everyone participating in the hop so you don't miss a beat!
