Coffee with my crafty sisters

Today is the day for the Spring coffee lovers bloghop, I know it is going to be as much fun as the others and filled with so many wonderful coffee projects.



While a cup of coffee is good, having it with  
friends makes it better. I made some pages for my
mini art journal in honor of my crafting sisters from Mountain Plains Crafters.

I made this cup in honor of my friend Jennifer. 
Can you see the steam? I made the steam by drawing with glue. The block background stamp and cup are from a MFP set called OH BEANS.

This cup of coffee was made in honor of my friend Terri. I used the sketch from Mojo 386   She is musical as well as artsy so I put a panel of sheet music.


This next card is in honor of my friend Pam. I used the splitcoaststampers sketch challenge SC529
but I flipped it on the side. This made me think of Pam, because she is always thinking outside the box. I did the glue steam on this journal page too.

 This cup was made in honor of my friend Paula. She gave me some little tags at Christmas time. I used one of the little tags on this journal page. More glue steam.


This cup is in honor of my friend Sheryl. The colors in the splatter background and cup made me think of Colorado where she lives.

This cup was in honor of my friend Debra. She gave me this wonderful Classified newsprint stamp which has become my favorite mixed media stamp.
