Great Ideas Start With Coffee



Or in my case, with Diet Coke!  I have only been crafting once per week these days, but couldn't miss the opportunity to play along with the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop. There is so much gorgeous inspiration happening!  This card came together really quickly as I already had the die cut coffee mug die cut and stamped.  

We have an exciting week ahead.  We're heading to New York City on Thursday to watch Ryan's show choir perform at the Lincoln Center. It will be such an incredible opportunity for him and the entire show choir.  We're thrilled for him.  Pat and I will also get a chance to see Maroon 5's concert on Thursday night!  Looking forward to a super fun weekend away and are so thankful that my mum will stay with the younger three boys. We're so blessed to have our family close by.  I have a few cards scheduled over the next two weeks, but things will continue to be quiet around here for a while until activity and school/work schedules slow down.
