Spring Summer Coffee Lover blog hop

Welcome to the 2023 Spring | Summer Coffee Lovers blog hop! Thank you Amy for putting on this beloved event — I can’t even imagine how much work it is but I always look forward to it! This blog hop runs Friday, May 5 – Friday May 12 and be sure to go to the Coffee Loving Cardmakers to check out all of the Super Sponsors. Of course, I will have a prize so be sure to keep reading!

My two cards today might make you go “hmmmmm”. It’s not a traditional pairing but I couldn’t resist playing with Close To My Heart’s newest stamp of the month called, Little Stinkers. These are sold at retail and only available for one month BUT, when you spend $50 then you can get this stamp set for just $5. With all of the National Scrapbooking (and cardmaking!) Day and Month (Dream Maker) promotions we have going on, well, that’s not hard to do!

Card details: Little Stinkers – CTMH, coffee to go cup – CTMH (retired SOTM), Need to Venti? – a|s, Flower Shoppe paper pack – CTMH, Flower Shoppe coordinationg cardstock – CTMH and hard to see, but Leafy Background – CTMH

I hope these cards make you smile as much as they make me happy!

So true, right?!? Coffee makes my day possible!

Super Sponsor Prize

Please leave me a comment by midnight May 12. Not sure what to say? Pick which of these cards are your favorite? Or, let me know if you’ve ever tried Close To My Heart products? (ha ha, that won’t influence the outcome of my drawing — I’m just curious!). You can follow me on Instagram for an extra chance — if you already do, leave me comment there to that effect. And, thank you!

One lucky winner will receive this stamp and matching thin cut die…CTMH’s Whole Latte Love retails for $19.95.

Thanks for hopping by!

  11. OH, my heart! So stinkin’ cute. What a FUN card. I want to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for your support in this special event. If it weren’t for gracious sponsors like you, this hop couldn’t take place. We all appreciate you very much.
    I am in love with the Stamp of the Month this month. I keep seeing it on various (consultants’) blogs and I think it’s just the cutest little set. Anyway, thanks again for your support. I really enjoy your art as well. That was such a fun treat.
