Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - What's Perking?

Hello, friends!  It's that time again, the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is up and running, from Friday, June 17th through Friday, June 24th.  This is my second card for the hop!


Today's card uses some summery coordinating papers from Basic Gray ("Piccadilly" 6x6 paper pad) and an old Hero Arts stamp set ("What's Perking?").  I paper-pieced the coffee pot and added black enamel dots for fun accents.  The shadow under the coffee pot is from Paper Smooches ("Shadows") stamped in khaki dye ink.  The Antique Linen distress ink around the edges of the white panel adds some interest, too!


I hope you are able to hop along in the Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop.  It is amazing to see how this hop has taken on a life of its own...each hop has more participants than the last!  I am always amazed at how many generous companies sponsor and offer prizes, and how many participants actually comment on every entry!  What a fun event each season...and what an amazing feat to pull off each time!  Kudos to Amy and all those on the team who make it all possible.  I'm thrilled that I haven't missed one yet!

Thanks for stopping by,
Judy
