Summer Coffee Lovers' Bloghop Cup 4

Hi, welcome back to my blog.

Like many of you, my craft friends, I like coffee and I like flowers!  So I tried to look up what flowers represent Summer.  The world wide web gave me some answers, some make more sense that other. Thus instead of relying on the information on the web, I dick into my memories and ask myself, what flower speaks Summer to me.

Before long an image pops up, the Dandelion!!  They are everywhere in the summer, and my DH spend much time removing them from the lawn.  I see people picking young plants from the fields, do you know that the root of the Dandelion could made into coffee substitute? Both root and leaves can be dried, stored and made into tea.  Huh!  **

I safe kept this botanical drawing of a Dandelion (a page from an old planner) to use someday, I think today is that day.  

I wanted to keep as much as possible the drawing, so I hand cut a cup shape out of it to make this card for the 4th day of the Summer Coffee Lover's Bloghop.

I hope I didn't bore you too much about the story behind my "cup"!?  :D
