Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Today I'm joining in with the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  I somehow totally missed the winter hop and didn't want to miss another one!
and here is my spring design coffee card!
I water colored the background on a watercolor panel using watercolor paints, brush and water.  I die cut the coffee cup and donut out of watercolor paper, stamped them with Archival Jet Black Ink and colored them using Ranger Distress Crayons and a waterbrush.
Then I stamped the sentiments on the panel and adhered the cup and donut with foam dots.  I added these sweet white flowers that I got free with an order from Funkie Junkie Boutique 
(Linda includes free treats with all orders!)  
The stamp set, We Go Together,  is from Gina K - designed by Claire Brennan.  
(Claire formerly had this set at Waltzingmouse with a die set that is no longer available.)

You'll find lots of Spring Coffee lovers inspiration over at the hop here

I'm also linking my card to the CAS Watercolor challenge (just under the deadline!)
