... Cofee Lovers Summer hop, plus Candy!


Good morning! Great to see you, today I'm finally taking part in the summer coffee lovers blog hop! I'm sure you know all about it, but if not here's a quick link to all the Coffee Lovers website and main info page for this hop. There are oodles of prizes to be won and Gina K is a super sponsor (cough!, massive sale just begun at Gina's, cough!), you could win big just by taking part! Get your stamps out!

This is my card for the hop today and I used my own coffee set, We Go Together, which is just 'new again', at Gina K Designs. I used the small coffee and doughnut from that set on this card:

http://www.shop.ginakdesigns.com/product.sc?productId=2529&categoryId=16

 I trimmed them out and coloured them with copics before placing them on the background panel that I had created with my new Gina K inks. I used the delicious Sweet Corn, Sweet Mango and Red hot inks.

The heart images are from a WMS set from a while back, Halftone Backgrounds, It's not currently available, but maybe someday. The sentiment is stamped in Gina K Dark Chocolate ink, I am so enjoying the Gina K inks, they have great coverage and are fast becoming my go-to range, just need a few more shades...lol...and then I'll need more cardstock and they have matching envelopes...oh you know how this goes....

Anyhow, hope you liked my little summery card, have a great hop!

Can I do blog candy? 

Yep, I think I can... I have a spare set of the Halftone Backgrounds set left over here in my office, was doing a little cleaning out over the weekend... it looks like this:





 This set is currently not available anywhere, and it's a large set, jam packed with halftone background images, it's a super versatile set, and I especially love it for Masculine cards.

If you fancy winning this set (it's clear photopolymer), then leave a comment here on this blog post. No awkward question to answer, just say hi! I'll pick a random winner on Sunday Night and pop out the winners prize on Monday! Ok, see you later!
