warm wishes



So, hopefully you've heard about the 

Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

It will start here, on my blog, on Wednesday, December 10th at 6 am pacific.

There will be Sponsor prizes, blog candy and all sorts of fun!

In order to be eligible for the Sponsor prizes, you need to link up a newly created Holiday/winter coffee project or perhaps your favorite hot holiday beverage!

I made this tall & skinny card (3.5 x 5.5) to get the coffee theme started on my blog:


paper:  basic grey/25th & pine  stamps:  lawn fawn/love you a latte  ink:  zing/white, wplus9 white  other:  pretty pink posh/stitched duo 2 die, misc felt trim

I'm still smitten by the chalkboard technique and love it with the green panel!

I managed to get a ton of behind the scenes work done on the hop yesterday...along with finishing up on decorating for the holidays.

    PS ...I thought something weird was going on-- every blog I have visited this AM has had word verification on it (including yours) .... I checked my settings and I have "NO" selected for word verify ... but I wonder if it's on my blog too???

  30. I adore this color combo. Terrific card, Amy. FYI, I don't know if it's just me, but I am having trouble commenting on your blog. When I hit comment, nothing happens. I have to R-click and open a new window to get to this page. Might just be my computer though and not your blog. I'll try rebooting!
