Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Day One!





Today is the day!!!  It's the first day of the 2016 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  If you're new to the hop...welcome!  Our Summer Hop had 811 link ups and 57 Super Sponsors.  Each hop we hope to exceed our previous record (crossing fingers)...we exceeded our Super Sponsors by 6 for this hop!  We have 63 (awesome) Super Sponsors!  Prizes are awarded by participation rather than by the typical commenting.   For all the deets check out the hop post ---> HERE.

Honestly, I love the camaraderie and the fun that happens during the hop.  The logistics are truly a labor of love as it literally takes hours to pull everything together.  

So let's get to it, shall we?!  Here's my first card for the hop!  I was so excited when MFT released their latest Tea products!  I drink coffee in the morning and tea in the afternoon :) 


My card was inspired by the latest MFT sketch challenge!


I combined the new Tea Party and Cup of Tea sets!  To give my design the feeling of Fall, I die cut my tea cup from the Fun & Frolic paper pad!  All products are available at Butterfly Reflections Ink which is a returning Super Sponsor!!!!!!!


I'm really looking forward to hopping and being inspired by everyone's projects!

Thanks so much for stoppin' by!!!!!

  15. Oh, how sweet is that cup! Love it. Thank you for all your hard work putting the Fall hop together. I am so grateful. I have been sick the last two days, and was worried I would have to try and do the hop sick. But I woke up today feeling alot better. I am running behind though, so just got linked up and started commenting. Hope you have a lovely fun day and week. Sending big crafty hugs your way.
