Growing in Unity Day Three and the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Welcome Unity Friends and Coffee Lovers!!!  I am so excited to share with you my day three projects and also participate in the 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  I have been doing these hops each and every time and look forward to all the inspiration that comes from the amazing projects submitted!
For my cards today I used this wonderful Itty Bitty image titled Coffee Side by Side:

I stamped the images using Memento black ink.  I then colored them in using my Prismacolor pencils.  I got a HUGE set of them for Christmas this past year, doubling the number of colors I had.  I then trimmed the cardstock down and matted each with coordinating colors.  I then found these wonderful summery pattern papers in my stash and used them as the base for my cards.  Summer for me here in California means flowers...lots and lots of flowers, so I had to pick papers that reflect the colors of the flowers in my garden.  I love how different each card looks using the same stamp, but different colors!





I hope you are inspired to maybe create a coffee themed project and link it up on the 2017 Coffee Lovers Hop post.

And don't forget to leave a comment on each post this week...I get to pick one lucky person to win an awesome prize from Unity!!!

Happy crafting...Lynda
