There's also a FUN Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop happening now that you must check out!  Tons of sponsors including VERVE STAMPS!


 A new sketch at Viva la Verve went live this morning, too!  I turned the sketch to show off my Verve-i-licious cup of coffee "table setting."  The lace doily, floral and coffee cup remind me of my breakfast nook!


I stamped the Coffee cup and cut using the coordinating Cuppa Joe Die Set, and the Coffee sentiment was stamped near the bottom accent strip.  A few flowers and leaves were cut from the Floral Circles Die Set and Dreamy Leaves Die Set to create a bouquet of sorts.  Flowers and coffee just go together, huh?!


Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
