It's Spring! Well, For Coffee Loving Cardmakers, Anyway

I couldn't resist a second card for the Spring Coffee Loving Cardmakers Bloghop!  I actually made two, but my family said they are too much alike so I can only post one.  I listen to them, most of the time, they are usually right (but I'll show you both)!
 
Here's the second one I made using the same papers on the cups, but this time a thank you card.
 I used Mama Elephant's Cup of Wishes on both cards, SSS Apothecary labels for the sentiment on the first card, and PTI Thank You Kindly on the second card.  The papers are mostly from My Mind's Eye Fiddlesticks with a couple of extras from my scraps.  The twine and card bases are from Hobby Lobby.

Check out the wonderful creations over at the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  Thank you, once again, Amy, for putting this together, and thank you to all the wonderful sponsors!

These cups are also going to play at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: No Rules,
and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge:  Anything Goes!

I simply LOVE the color combinations you used to create those two fabulous coffee lovers cards, and I need to ask you: did you somehow see how many cups of coffee I drink a day??? and that is why you needed to make two cards to fit all those cups???
