I'm in a Wasabi State of Mind... Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

OK - too much wasabi (the paper color, that is) is going to my brain. lol! I don't usually use much wasabi but it was on top of the pile and I didn't feel like digging so there you go. lol!

Here's another coffee card for the Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop and guess what, it's made with...wait for it... WASABI! lol!

This is not the coffee card (that's further down the post) but it's the jumping off point for the card. This is a card from my June card class. I love the bees from Bee Happy flying around the flower from Mini Blooms and isn't it great on the hexagon background? And, what about the wasabi and hibiscus color combo -it is so happy!  

Here's the inside - sweet and simple.
I loved the combo so much that I pulled out the Perk Up die and decided to do a version of the card but with a coffee twist.
Lichen is the background color for the hexagon border and I pulled the stamp pad across the background image to distress it up and then added the black ink. The vanilla twine finishes it off. It's such a great card for someone who is ill or feeling down or just a coffee loving friend.
Here's a close-up of the happy little coffee cup. Isn't it fun?

You've got one more day to join in the hop so hope you'll ink up a coffee stamp and join in on the fun. All the details are here: http://coffeelovingcardmakers.com/2015/06/summer-coffee-lovers-blog-hop/

Have a wonderfully creative day!
