Day 3 of the Coffee Lovers Summer Blog Hop

I'm trying to post something each day of the hop. So this technically was supposed to be posted yesterday.  I need to say that I've had vein surgery on my leg and have to alternate activities to keep the circulation going.  So I can't sit too long at the computer to blog hop and leave comments, can't stand too long to make a card, etc. Thank goodness we have an entire week for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and then a couple extra days to leave comments.



Verve Stamps is one of the super sponsors. When visiting them along the hop, I discovered they have their own hop going, and a challenge. So out come my Verve stamps and dies!
