A Perk Up Coffee Card...Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop, Muse #107

Hello,
Cheering that it's Friday, but not so much excited about 'springing forward' an hour on Sunday. Then again, daylight spilling into the early evening is rather a treat. It won't be long before flowers will be blooming, butterflies will be fluttering about (the few we have), the bears will be awakening from their hibernation, I'll be panicking about running into them on our hikes...ah, yes, the signs  of spring are preparing to unfold. *grin*

Anyway, I'm entering my second card for the wildly popular, inspiring, marvelous Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop, where I'm pretty sure that those who are hopping madly through the 450 entries (and with a few hours to go, I'm predicting the scale will tip at 500), are exhausted.  Applauding your energy and especially, your warm comments!  Just a little more to go...
My card's layout and colours were drawn from Vicki's wonderful creation over at Muse #107



 Simple little number that I hope will brighten someone's day...


I won't keep you any longer...I'm off to hop, too!  

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
Hugs,

Hey pal! Love how you flipped the design! GREAT sentiment too! Gotta know - are the three design blocks in the middle stamped or is it DP? If they are stamped, I really would love to know which set this is!

Had a giggle over the bears part of spring coming, thanks! That's enough to terrify me from attempting! Terrific cards, by the way. 500 cards? Wow! Have a great weekend! :)

Very adorable card with a great sentiment!
I'm going to miss that hour, too! And as much as I look forward to spring and summer there a few things I could do without like for example ticks and the fear of Lyme disease...

OH it definitely brightened up my day just seeing this lovely little card!! Pink and brown is one of my favorite color combinations and I just love the squares in the background! Such a fun and fabulous card Carol! You watch out for those bears now! heheh! We have them here too, but just the little black ones, not the grizzles! Yikes! (Hugs)!

Ardyth Percy-Robb said...

Love your use of the colours and patterns, Carol! As for the bears, yikes! Watch out! So glad you joined us at Muse this week!

Brenda said...

Pink and brown, one of my favorite color combos! Love your use of the "to go" cup die and the nice texture looking patterns, just a fabulous card my dear. Oh no, bears are not good unless they can be chased off and don't get around any cougars either and don't let the bikers run you over....oh yes, sounds like spring is on it's way. I don't think anyone is thrill about losing that hour of sleep, but it will be lovely to have daylight longer in the evening. I for one would be happy if they just put the clocks on one or the other and leave them there! lol Hugs, Brenda

Bobby said...
