Coffee Lovers Spring Blog Hop

Today's been the best morning.  I am on vacation and spent time in my craft room playing! I am sipping my second cup of the day as I post this.  My first cup kept me going as I colored and created a card for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

I used an adorable image from Sandra Caldwell - an artist who is new to me, but I LOVE her whimsical style.  I decided to fussy cut using a scrap of patterned paper.

Muse Challenge #158 inspired my design.  I popped the image out off the page on the corner and used a computer generated and then doodled around sentiment.

I'm so excited about how this turned out, . . one of those cards that matches the picture in my head as I created it.  It's going to my DIL, who is on week three of sleep deprivation with a new baby!!
