Coffee Lovers Summer Blog Hop - I just wanna dunk you in my coffee!

Have you heard??? It's time for the Coffee Lovers Summer Blog Hop!  
You'll want to get out your coffee stamps and create a summer card as there are TONS of companies offering prizes to random winners - you'll find them all listed at the blog hop.
I used summertime watercolors on my card - mixing pink, yellow and orange like sunshine and beautiful flowers growing in our gardens!
 First I brushed water over a panel of Arches Water Color Paper - then I painted on the watercolors, mixing with some more water, and drying with my heat tool. The stamps are from the We Go Together set by Gina K Designs (designed by Claire Brennan) as well as the dies which were from Waltzingmouse (no longer available).   I stamped the sentiment with Archival Jet Black Ink.
I die cut the donut and coffee cup out of  Arches Water Color Paper, brushed them with water and then with watercolor paints.  I added two Tiny Twinkles to the donut cheeks and popped them both up on foam dots.
I'm also linking my card to the CAS Mix Up June Challenge
I used stamps, die cuts and watercolor paints.
So lets go check out all of the Summer Coffee cards shall we?!! We have until June 24th to link up our cards!
