Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop: VIDEO


Hello and welcome to the SUMMER Coffee Lovers blog hop! Do you like coffee, tea or cocoa and Summer? Then this blog hop is for you and ANYONE can play along.  You’ve got a week to link up your entires are there are a TON, I mean TON of amazing sponsors (badge below)……  Head on over HERE for all the details and to play along.


This card was made by my first experiemenation with the Ken Oliver color bursts… They are super cool pigmented powders that I have personally nicknamed the powders with power, he he he!  I got mine from Blitsy when they were on sale (SCORE:  sign up for the newsletter to be notified of the flash sales), but these guys are super inexpensive and will last a life time because a little goes a long way!  And guess what? Blitsy has them right now! GO HERE and search color burst in the search bar and there they are!!!! I filmed my first experiemention for Blitsy and I’ve got that video to share with you below if you haven’t already seen it. I just finished up my second video this morning but I still need to edit, so that will be up next week! Be sure to follow my youtube channel if you want to see.. You can watch the video in which I created the background for my coffee card below or over on my youtube channel in HD. Whatever your pleasure.

Check out all the amazing sponsors for the hop and head on over to the main hop post to see what prizes are up for grabs for all the participants!
