Enjoy Life sip by Sip & May your day be as Wonderful as the First Sip

 There is a big Spring Coffee Blog Hop going on and I am hoping I have made these
in time to scrape in. I cant believe how many people have entered the blog hop.....
Just checked it out still 22 hrs to go, plenty of time for another card.....maybe.
Anyway there are already 1051 entries -imagine if you had to judge each card, wow.
Anyway I have only a couple of stamps relevant to coffee, I think I like to drink it more
than stamp it. They are mostly tea cups like this wonderful set

This stamp is from Power Poppy and I have stamped it out twice so I can do two cards with
different sentiments and in different colours.
This budgie is blue and purple and his set of tea/coffee cups
are fine china finished in silver.

Its funny but you get the illusion that the green and yellow budgie is slightly larger
than the blue and purple. Check were they are side by side and see what I mean.

I am much more drawn to this version, even though I picked the colours for both
this one looks brighter and lighter and better to me.

Both are coloured with copics, this tea/coffee set finished in gold.

A few sequins dotted here and there on both cards, careful not to put directly
under the tail/bum. didnt want people thinking they are pooping sequins.

Here are the two side by side, love both sentiments and happy with both cards.

Thank you so much for coming to have a look.


I have entered both cards in the hop on 
separate URL's but same post.

Green and yellow budgie

The Green and Yellow Bedgie - Copics because they are just so
easy to use no matter where you are, and they blend so beautifully
and they have so many colours to choose from.

Thanks for coming and I hope you come again soon.
