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, June 22nd and Friday, June 24th. 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 Prize Winners along with Flash Prizes will be announced on the blog, Sunday, June 26.

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!
Anyone is eligible for a Super Sponsor prize if they link up a newly created SUMMER 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! 🙂
When I think of summer, I think of sun and beach. I decided to create a scene of people holding huge cups of coffee at the beach! People crave cool drinks when it’s warm, but I still love my coffee hot! I’m not a fan of ice coffee. I am a fan of fruit-infused iced teas and lemonades though! These two are quite bold to be drinking hot coffee at the beach 😉
I used masking in order to stamp the boy with the cup from Bold Brew and then wanted to create a girl with him. I stamped her from the last Neat and Tangled release set Say Yes to Donuts! Aren’t they so adorable? Once they were stamped, I started coloring with my absolute favorite Mission Gold watercolors. Best. Investment. Ever. I just love using them. I added a hint of sun in the upper right corner. Once everything was dry, I stamped the sentiment with a waterproof black ink and glued my panel to my A2 cardbase. Simple, fun, relaxing… definitely makes me want to grab a cup of coffee… and maybe head to the beach. Lol. Hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration!
