Lets have coffee outside

The weather is getting nicer as the days go by and that makes me want to take my morning cup of joe and sit outside as the sun comes up and the birds start chirping.  I love this time of the year cause it not scorching hot yet and all the flowers are starting to bloom.  It fun to watch the world start waking up from it long winters nap.  This card is for the sparkle creations spring challenge.
