coffee and watercolor challenge on sunday which is friday

The stars have aligned in the world of challenges for me today! May I present my card for:

Amy T.'s Coffee Lovers' Summer Hop



Pretty Pink Posh's Watercolor Hop



The Challenge #37



and CAS on Sunday  Tic Tac Toe (I've used birthday-female-off the edge, the inside reads "Happy Birthday").



Got the coffee goin' on thanks to STAMPlorations (love that sentiment!). Got the watercolor thanks to Peacock Feathers and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks and my paintbrush. Got the sketch covered thanks to the splats of blue and lilac and the "coffee stains" (from STAMPlorations Holiday Artsy) in Versacolor Cement above and below the coffee cup.


Amy T. and Paulina have done an awesome job putting together these two hops. Can't wait to see all the cards. Thanks, ladies! Happy hopping!
