Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Tonight I decided to play along with the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop! I have never played along, but have followed the bloghops before and always feel inspired. Now I must admit, I am definitely not a coffee lover; however, I have a lot of friends who are and that is why I LOVE these stamp sets from Verve! I used the fun sketch over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and am also linking up to the "Anything Goes" challenge over at Simon Says Stamp.
Paper - Seaside patterned papers, Desert Sand & Colonial White cardstock (CTMH);
Ink - Desert Sand, Lagoon (CTMH); Stamps - Coffee, Better With You (Verve);
Embellishments - Burlap (CTMH); Dies - Cuppa Joe die set (Verve); Cricut cartridge - Art Philosophy (CTMH).

Merci Chalk It Up

I needed some thank-you cards for our Carnaval de Qu├ębec celebration at school this week so I whipped up some 3x3 cards for the occasion. I was inspired by the colours at Colour me...! and the fun inspiration photo over at Curtain Call. The sprinkles reminded me of the fun aqua dots I just got!
All supplies are Close To My Heart:
Paper - Flaxen, Lagoon, Chalk It Up patterned papers; Ink - Black;
Stamps - Thank You; Embellishments - Aqua dots.

I also made 400 "effigy" Bonhomme name tags for students coming to our celebration.
