I'm back today to celebrate all things coffee because..... it's National Espresso Day! Friends, you all know I will do anything to celebrate coffee; the bean, the fruit of my mornings and the nightcap to my evenings.... one of God's greatest creations.... the coffee bean.
Of course, my friend Amy from coffeelovingcardmakers.com thought it would be a great idea to celebrate this momentous occasion by flooding the blogosphere with crafty coffee creations so, who am I to argue?
I'm pairing several stamp sets for my little wintry scene, from Stamplorations, along with their new cutplorations dies, Stitched Snow Hills, which I love! The two stamp sets that I'm using were designed by my sweet friend, Becca Cruger. They are "Caffeinated Christmas" (you must own this!) and "Reindeer Games". Total cuteness! The little coffee cup is my own design that I drew, colored and popped out with foam squares.
If you love Coffee and Crafting, then you'll want to join the upcoming Winter Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop in December. It's a week long event where you can link up your newly created coffee, tea or cocoa themed cards, with a winter theme for this event. There were over 800 entries at the Fall Blog Hop and it's always a ton of fun. There are numerous and very generous sponsors who offer up prizes, so you don't want to miss this! I'll be sharing the link when the event goes live.
Here are a few noteworthy happenings for the Hop:
Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop: Dec 9 – Dec 16 at coffeelovingcardmakers.com
