Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop

Hello Everyone!

Today is the last day of the Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop! It’s been an exciting week! You can take one more look over at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog right here: http://coffeelovingcardmakers.com/2017/12/2017-winter-coffee-lovers-blog-hop-2/

Today I made sort of a quirky, fun card using  two dies from Avery Elle, Petal Plate Die and Petal Plate Additions die! They remind me of artsy coffee drips and Christmas ornaments. I cut them, and the Poppystamps Ornate Tea Set die out of shiny foil paper for Christmas Coffee greeting!

Just leave a comment on this or any of my posts during the Coffee Lovers Bloghop, and you might be randomly selected to win a fabulous coffee themed mystery prize!

Thanks so much for joining me today!

Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop

Hello Everyone!

Today I am sharing a very special card I created for National Hot Cocoa Day that I am linking up for the Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop! You can get all the details and link up your winter coffee inspired card over at the Coffee Loving Papercrafters Blog right here: http://coffeelovingcardmakers.com/2017/12/2017-winter-coffee-lovers-blog-hop-2/

I just LOVE hot chocolate, so when I saw this stamp set from Newton’s Nook, I just HAD to have it! It features two of my very favorite things in all the world, hot chocolate and kitties!

But that’s not all! Simply leave a comment and you might be randomly selected as a winner of my very special blog candy!

I try to prepare a coffee themed card or two so I will be ready to celebrate the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop from the very first day, and then post every day! So, as you can see, I have missed a few days. Sadly, I had a very sick little kitty that kept me very busy about a week or so before the hop. On early Friday morning, my sweet 17 year old Felix slipped away and crossed over the rainbow bridge. This is the first card I’ve made since Friday, and of course, I knew it needed to feature a kitty.

Felix spent all his time with me, especially when I was at my computer. He would flop down on top of my keyboard, and I would keep moving it around and working around him, and he would curl up and soak up the sun. usually we could find a nice compromise. He would sleep on my right arm, allowing me to still click the mouse with my right hand, and type with my left. Goodbye sweet Felix, I will never forget you!

Thank you all so much for joining me today, and allowing me to share a little bit about my feline fur baby who meant the world to me.

Live your life in color! Meow!
