Coffee Anyone?

The Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop has officially started.  You can link up your coffee (or tea or cocoa) creations, comment on participants' posts, and-- if the coffee beans align--you may even win a prize from one of the many sponsors. Details are at the official Coffee Lovers Blog HERE.

For my first entry, I made this sign.  I used a coffee cup and steam from the Hero Arts Caffeine Fix digital set and a premde sentiment square offered as a freebie from The Cottage Market.




I used my Photoshop software to put a frame around the square and layer the coffee cup and steam.  I chose a background and then played with color and shadowing.  Altogether I have a nicely matted sign which serves as my mantra.

Indeed, life is too short for bad coffee!

I'll be posting more coffee themed craftiness between now and March 6th when the blog hop ends.
My link up number is #66 HERE.
