Little Acres + Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Happiest of Fridays! I don't know about all of you, but I needed some super-sized caffeinated beverages to get me to the end of this week. I'm so excited for the weekend because I'm heading to two concerts & the Minnesota Craft Beer Festival! Woot! 


But before I hop off to have some fun, let me tell you about a different kind of hop - a super awesome blog hop that members of the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Design Team are doing in collaboration with Little Acres Creations.


They have a big birthday celebration going on over at their place and this adorable, newly released stamp set that will definitely make you melt into a puddle of awwwwwwww (at least if you have any sort of heart at all).

I fell in love with the little mouse sitting atop a big ol' coffee mug and staring into the distance. So he was the first thing I inked up.

I colored in the focal image using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and added a little bit of highlighting with a white gel pen.

I splattered my card base with some Distress Spray Stain to tie in the color of my focal image.

I added some metallic texture paste stars to both the base and focal panel for a little dimension and shimmery goodness.

Lastly, I stamped a dreamy image into the bottom righthand corner and used some mounting foam to raise up my focal panel. Sigh* this card just makes me wistful and all googley eyed. 

Well, that's my design and I hope you liked it! Now hop off to all the other great inspiration because there are some awesome prizes up for grabs that you don't wanna miss!
