ColourQ #282

Hello...it's Tuesday and time for more fabulous colors from ColourQ #282...as a rule I don't usually use much blue. but really love the look paired with Frilly Flowers stamps and dies from PTI. I was inspired by the beautiful flowers that Marybeth has been making, they are amazing. I bought a MISTI and am in love with how nice my stamped images fit on the dies, almost perfect. Hope you will find the time to play along with us this week. Several of you asked me to share the recipe to the coffee cake I made yesterday, here is the link to the King Arthur Flour site where I found the recipe, it is now a family favorite in my house.  thank you so much for taking the time to stop by...enjoy your week!

Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hello and happy Friday! So happy it is the end of the week, yesterday was a very long day. I am always the teacher that is pulled to sub when another teacher is out sick and yesterday our PE teacher's wife went into labor and I was asked to step in and take his classes. Are you KIDDING me???? I am not an outdoor person at all...I am more of a dolly domestic and would have rather been asked to iron clothes than teach PE, but I managed to pull it off and have to say that other than not having the proper shoes I had a blast (but don't tell my principal or my feet)!

jump rope before religion class...did my best to wear them out!

I have been so excited about this hop...I love both coffee and tea, tea being at the top of my list, but I made a coffee card for the hop. I love these sweet stacking cups from Poppy Stamps, so pretty. I hope you get to play along, here is the link to the Coffee Loving blog to add your card. 
I am also entering my card in the challenge over at Poppy Stamps, the theme is love and whats not to love when it comes to coffee!

I want to welcome Chriss Balgrave from Botanical Cafe as my newest follower...she is an amazing card marker, her blog is like walking through a beautiful garden.
