June Blog Hop!

Welcome to the June Blog Hop! If you haven't started from the beginning, then click HERE to do that. There ARE a couple of surprises along the way! (wink, wink) You'll also get to check out the two brand new MFT Sweet Sixteen members, Barbara and Kathy. Oh, and remember that both of the sets that you will see/have seen on this Hop will be available at midnight tonight!

This is a Starbucks coffee thermos that I recovered from a garage sale this weekend. They are made to be "altered" and that is exactly what I did! I found this Around the Block PP in my stash that is all about traveling and "enjoying the journey" and I thought that it would be perfect for this! I just slipped the PP inside the thermos where it will be kept dry from washing and then set to the Flopsey on the outside!

I tried to get the Flopsey on the inside, but with the flowers on the dimensional ears, there was 4 layers of CS there, and it just wouldn't fit! I figure that the recipient (or myself ;)) could either wash carefully, or remove the outer layers when it's time to clean out the coffee.

This is I Need Coffee Flopsey. Ain't she cute!? I cut off her fuzzy slippers because I didn't figure it fit with the travel theme, but they are quite cute, too!

Here's a pic of the whole mug. I really like these things! I may have to get more for Father's Day gifts!!

And here's a pic of the little sentiment tag. I used some SU! ribbon and a Creative Cafe tag. For the flowers on Flopsey's ears, I used a Fiscars punch and added some A Muse Twinkle Stickers.
Well, that's about it for my part of the Hop. To continue on, click HERE and go check out Susie! I know that you're gonna LOVE what she has in store for you!
I have another card for you for later that I made with one of the other June sets. Till then!
xox,
Kirsten
