Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Sweet Goodbye!

Hello Everybody!

Today is the final day of the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, and today, I am sharing my final card! I have had an amazing week seeing so much coffee inspiration and ideas, trying a few new things with free digi downloads from a few super sponsors, sharing some of my coffee cards created with my favorite products from Paper Sweeties and Poppystamps which I am proud to be a part of their design teams, and finally, sharing cards that I have created that reflect my own unusual, bright and colorful style! There’s still time for you to play along and link up your final cards right here at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog: http://coffeelovingcardmakers.com/2017/09/final-day-of-the-fall-hop/

This is one of those cards! I have used dies from Poppystamps, Memory Box, Paper Smooches, Lawn Fawn, and Taylored Expressions, some of my favorites! I love pooling dies together to create something adorable!

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hello Everybody!

The other day I had my first Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season, followed by the new pumpkin spice Oreos! Am I tired of PSL yet? It’s only just begun, and it’s my favorite time of the year, and I can’t get enough! I also can’t get enough terrific fall coffee lovers cardmaking ideas either! You will definitely find something you’ll love over at the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop right here: http://coffeelovingcardmakers.com/2017/09/2017-fall-coffee-lovers-blog-hop/

Today’s coffee themed creation is done in a style that I have been doing a lot of all summer, when my bright and sunny craft room is transformed into an easy bake oven by noon. The style is hard to describe, a bit CAS, a bit bold and graphic, clean lines, and full of color! I love working with and combining detailed die cuts most of all, mixing and matching from my favorite die companies. Today, I am sharing my coffee loving kitty!

But that’s not all! I have got Blog Candy too! That’s right! Simply leave a comment (and a way to reach you, like an email), on this or any of my posts for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and you might be randomly selected to win the mystery blog candy gift!

Hello Everybody!

I bet you all thought I forgot all about announcing the winner of my Mystery Package for the Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop, right? I didn’t forget; I was just unable to announce it until today! Mr. Crimson Owl and I have been on vacation, celebrating our 10 year anniversary! Our first stop was Atlanta to see an AMAZING Houston Astros team beat the Atlanta Braves in the brand new beautiful Sun Trust Park! Then it was off to Las Vegas, the glitter capitol of the world! Perfect for a crafty gal like me who loves the bling! Now I’m finally back in the craft room, and I DO have a winner to announce!

Drum roll, please . . .

Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Wrap Up!

Hello Everyone!

Today is the final day of the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! I am wrapping up my entries with today’s final card, a salute to spring tea! There’s still a little time left to link up your coffee or tea inspired projects right here: http://coffeelovingcardmakers.com/2017/03/2017-spring-coffee-lovers-blog-hop/

I wanted to create something special for the big wrap-up, so I made this pretty tea time tag that I will use to send someone special a little Happy Mail surprise! I also have something special for all of you too, some blog candy!

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post, or any of my other Coffee Lovers Blog Hop posts from March 24 -31. One random winner will be selected to win Coffee Nut m&m’s and a Starbucks gift card.

I also wanted to thank the amazing Amy Tsuruta for organizing this spectacular hop every season. With entries surpassing the quadruple digit mark, her ability to comment on nearly every single entry is phenomenal! How does she do it? I bet coffee helps!

I would also like to thank all of our super sponsors who offer us all some truly generous prizes and flash surprises, and the companies that keep designing all these fun coffee and tea stamps and dies. Keep them coming, and remember the stand alone detailed dies too (for us paper crafting lovers)! Thanks also to each and every blogger who offers blog candy too! It is so much fun to come across a surprise chance for a little extra lagniappe of ribbon, sequins, twine, or a gift card. Crafters are the best, am I right?

Finally, I would like to thank all of you in the crafting community who create beautiful coffee inspired cards and projects and share them on the hop all week. I love seeing fresh new ideas, beautiful craftsmanship, and something new every season! I have seen some really amazing masterpieces so far, and it’s not even over! I wish I could have left comments on ALL of your cards, but I was finally done in by store fronts, house numbers, mountains, rivers. street signs, cars, and clicking my way around a sign post! I’ll see you all this summer!

Thank you all so much for joining me today!

Live your life in color!
