Happy Birthday Amy!!

PNW friends are hopping once again, this time for Amy Tsuruta!

Lovely Laura Norris is our hostess and I’m the last stop, but you can check below for the hop order!

Our challenge was to create a card with green, Seattle, or coffee.

I chose green as my focus, and because I was traveling and had three blog posts to write during that time, I brought my cards along, and for Amy I did the photoshoot in a San Francisco coffeeshop!

Last year I took her to NYC as a virtual trip; well this year, Amy, here are some coffeeshops I recommend along with your so-not San Francisco card (could any California city be less tropical??!!)

Amy likes pineapples so I created a very clean card with the Pink Paislee pinapple embossing folder and Kaisercraft pineapple die cut from green and gold Bazill paper.

Pineapples are sweet and so is Amy! Hoping she has an amazing day filled with friends, family, some crafting and of couse, coffee!

Equator on Market in SF is a great choice for healthy eats and their single origins, as well as some great art.

Just down the street you’ll find Mazarine who features Ritual coffee and Linea roasters. Love their decor and single origin options.

We also visited Ritual in the Haight, a super modern, friendly and delicious choice!

But I saved the best for last: Sightglass in SOMA. Amy you’ll love the affagato bar! 

Single origin Colombia espresso over Salt & Straw vanilla ice cream! 

Want to know where these are located and 20 more must-visit coffee shops in SF? See this Eater article! Happy travels, happy drinking, and….

Happiest birthday, Amy!
