This is a lovely sign of Spring, indeed!!  Welcome, coffee lover's, and the 2016 Coffee Lovers Bloghop!! 
I am a bit behind, so I'm going to 'pour' my
1st cup straight away! 
Even though I truly love my coffee black, and hot, I could not resist this darling sentiment and stamp from Neat & Tangle's Perfect Blend - I LOve it May, with its darling kitty!

A snippet frames this cute puuuuurrrrrrfectly!
Stamped in SU Chocolate Chip, and Crumb Cake inks.
 
 
Before I leave you, I want to post my Doodle card for CASology's Week 189 - see if you can find my own personal touch to this little doodle clipped from an adult coloring book:
 

 
Ellen Hutson fabulous die provided a cute little stem
 
I'm not much of a doodler, but I dabble in it ... and it kinda works for Kim's Freshly Made Sketches #228, too!
 

 
Oh you know there will be Second Cups coming shortly!!  It is always a pot-full day 'round here!

Shelly said...

Two super sweet cards!

Brenda said...

Love the coffee card Michele! That cat is just so cute. I also love the doodling card, great take on the sketch and I love your doodling words, or at least that is what I'm guessing you doodled???? Hugs, Brenda

Sue Reynolds said...

Both cards are great...Wondering if you doodled the cat in your coffee cup as well. I usually doodle on scrap paper, but never put it in a card...but have used the adult coloring books for a background.

Two awesome cards, Michele! I love the sweet kitty peeking upward from your lovely cup of coffee, and what a great sentiment! Clever doodling and gorgeous color combo on your 2nd card, too! Love how you added your message on the petals...your creative mind knows no boundaries :)

What a fun design for your coffee card Michele!! Love that kitty too! I think your second card totally works for the sketch and it's super fun too!!

Two fabulous cards Michele! Your doodled card is great - the pop of color in your sentiment against the black packs a punch. Thanks for joining us at CASology this week.

Nora N. said...

I LOVE your layering on the first card. The little face in the coffee is so fun!! The second card is awesome!! Love that you used a coloring book flower! I was going to play and actually doodle something by hand but my week got ahead of me. Love your take on both the challenges!

Kim Heggins said...

Joyce said...

Two wonderful cards, Michele. I think that it was brilliant to put the sentiment inside the petals, and my money is on that as your own little personal touch.

Ardyth said...

This is fabulous and dramatic - love the white and green on the black background! So glad you joined us at CASology this week, Michele!

Amy O said...

FABULOUS indeedy! That flower card is so bold and beautiful! I love your sweet coffee card with the creamed kitty, lol! Making me want to go to Starbucks today :)!

TaeEun said...

Love the layout of the coffee card! So CAS but with interesting details! Your doodle card is fabulous, too! I love that you chose a black card base!

Sharron said...

You're just like me about your coffee--black, hot and almost a pot a day! Love your card! The little cat is perfect with the sentiment! Your doodle is so clever, and so stunning with the black & white. What a great idea to write on the petals

Tracey McNeely said...

Both of these are so sweet Michele. Love the coffee card and stamp set I most get and your fabulous Doodbles. Thank you for sharing with us at CASology!

Leigh Penner said...

Beautiful!

Valentyna Komisarenko said...

OMG!!! I am absolutely knocked out by this fashionista!

Valentyna Komisarenko said...

And the cat in a cup - unexpectedly sweet :)

Bobby said...

I knew you'd come up with a wonderful coffee card, Michele. Sometimes you just have to add the cream. And you have to add your own doodles. I'm thinking it's the letters on the petals. Love the flower on the black, every graphic.

Hetty said...

Totally beautiful cards.

TracyM #6773 said...
