You can also play along yourself and create a coffee-themed project of your own! There are no limits to the number of entries–the more the merrier.

Flash Sponsor Prizes will be announced on FB on the evening of Wednesday, March 23rd and Friday, March 25th.  That means, if you want to be eligible for a Flash Prize, you’ll want to link up before 5 pm pacific on the respective dates. (Please note that if you are a winner and not on FB, you will receive an email prize confirmation.)

All Super Sponsor Prizes along with Flash Prizes will be announced on the blog, Sunday, March 27th.

For blogs that link up with blog candy, please contact your winner directly.


Flickr <– feel free to add your projects to this group!

Pinterest <– All projects will be pinned!

Facebook <– Please note that this is a secret group because of all the coffee vendors that were trying to be members.  Anyone that is a current member of the FB group can add you or contact me directly.

Instagram <– follow along in the fun!

Social media hashtag:  #‎SpringCLH (Facebook) / #SpringCLH (Instagram)

Anyone is eligible for a Super Sponsor/Flash prize if they link up a newly created SPRING Themed Coffee, Tea &/or Cocoa project, no back-linking please. Random.org is used to draw for winners.

We ask all Super Sponsors and participants to turn off word verification. Please note that there is an annoying glitch with blogger. Even if a person does not have word verification, it still shows up. You can ignore it because it really isn’t working as a true word verification. If someone actually has word verification, it will give you an error message. <–We shouldn’t have to worry about that because everyone will have it turned off. One way to get around this is to ‘embed’ the comment box (settings/posts & comments/comments/comment location/embedded).

We encourage commenting on all projects that link up for the hop. Please note that it makes it difficult for commenters if you post to a gallery that needs a login/password.

Now for my card! 🙂

I played with my new Mijellon Gold Mission watercolors today, which are at a ridiculously awesome price on Amazon! Using masking tape, I stamped the flowers first from Mondo Hydrangea with VersaMark and heat set with clear embossing powder. I waited for this stamp set to be restocked for weeks! Next, I stamped the coffee and frappuccino cups behind the flowers (using masking tape over the flowers) as well as some of the coffee beans. I spent some time watercoloring all the images and adding colorful splatters. I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark and heat set with gold embossing powder. I die-cut with scallop frame die after everything was dry and matted it down over kraft cardstock and white cardbase.

I finished it off with some Wink of Stella in Clear and glossy accents on one of the cups.
