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!

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!

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!
