Lawnscaping Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Lawnscaping blog hop!   I hope you've just come from Anni's blog - I love her cardmaking style!

The theme is Lawnscaping+caffeine=happiness! Here's what I came up with:

For the main coloured panel, I used the "Stitched Hillside Borders" dies from Lawn Fawn, and the "Stitched Mats: Squares" die from Lil' Inkers, along with the "Morning Cup" stamp set from Stampin' Up.  I used a couple of Copic markers to colour the mug, and then covered it in Glossy Accents. The coloured cardstock is all from my stash of offcuts, and I added some enamel dots as a finishing touch.
