What an appropriate theme for me, coffee is my go-to drink and it does equal happiness in my little world! I ended up making three projects featuring Lawn Fawn's Love you a Latte set for this hop keep scrolling to see them.

So now for my projects:

Got Coffee? What's better then coffee and rainbows! Aside from the Love you a Latte Set I also used Lawn Fawn's Voilet's ABCs, one of my favourite letter sets the slim scale makes them easy to use on projects.  I Copic coloured the coffee cups and piled them high! For my rectangle I used the Lawn Fawn stitched rectangles by cutting half of the paper first then readjusting to cut the second side to make a longer card. I also added, of course, PPP sequins.

This one will more than likely go to one of my nieces or nephews, yes I am a bad auntie and I introduced them to Starbucks! I made a shaker for this one with a mix of PPP sequins. I used the Lawn Fawn Let's Polka Mon Amie 6 x 6 for the background and some SSS mint cardstock for the frame. The ombre ink is Hero Arts Mint to Green.

The last one is a gift card holder, I often give Starbucks or Tim Horton's gift cards to friends. Can never have enough of those! Mimicked a Starbucks cup and tried to make a more masculine card. I used the coffee bean from the Love you a Latte set for the green background added some Lawn Fawn die cut hearts, Lawn Trimmings in green and sequins.

Thank you so much for taking the time to join me for the Hop today, I really enjoyed making these projects. Your next stop on this hop is Monica M.
