Seattle? Coffee?

For five years, in the month of July, I worked a dental conference in Seattle, Washington... I love Seattle!!  Had I known then there was a darling little card-making genius there, I would have hunted her down!

I always make an Homage to Amy card for the fabulous Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, so for the Spring edition, this one's for you, Amy! =] 



However, if you know Seattle? you'll know that this couldn't begin to be their coffee-house-location map!! I'm sure Amy has a long, long, list of favorite coffee houses... hope, one day, to join her at a few.

Thanks again, to Amy and Chaitali for putting together such a fun group of people to 'play cards' with.

Supplies:
You jump start my life sentiment from May Park's fabulous Neat & Tangled Jumpstart My Heart set.
Geo tag by Technique Tuesday.
Coffee - beans, and cup, by Verve.
Kelly Purkey - Second City 6x6 paper.

I have never been to Seattle, but my oldest son was stationed in Ft. Lewis and of course he went there. And just when we were going to go out and visit him, he got stationed on the East Coast. I was bummed that I wouldn't get to see the West Coast but was thrilled to have him back on my side of the US. I know more than you needed to know. lol I love your card Michele! That paper of the roads is awesome and I love your geo tags with the coffee beans marking coffee houses in the city. And then there is that fun coffee cup! Love it and love the sentiment! Hugs, Brenda

I've never been to Seattle, but your card has really ramped up my desire to go...and meet some of the gals there, and check out coffee houses. Perhaps, one day, I will...and you can join me! Now that, in my world, would be awesome! Guess you can tell: I adore your card!
