Saturday Coffee Cafe - Coffee & Books


 Hope you’re having a fabulous Saturday and so glad you took a little time out of your day to stop by my Saturday Coffee Café!

Today I’m featuring a wonderful new set from STAMPlorations:  Good Books and Coffee which arrived in the STAMPlorations store just in time for the upcoming Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop (March 24-31)!

I started with some newspaper print pattern paper for the background and paper pieced the coffee cup with it.  Then, I colored in the books adding gold ‘pages’ with a metallic gold pen.  The tag is from Papertrey Ink’s Keep It Simple Frames die collection which looked like a bookmark to me!


 I think it’s time to go curl up with a cup of my favorite brew and that spy novel I’ve yet to finish…sounds good, doesn’t it?!

Another thing that "sounds good" is joining the fun with these challenges:

 Addicted to Stamps & More - Anything Goes

 The Daily Marker - Coloring

 City Crafter - Cozy

Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes

 STAMPlorations - Anything Goes
