2016 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day Six : Pretty things + Giveaway!




We're on Day Six of the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  Personally, I've never been so ill prepared.  I'm literally whipping projects up in the morning...waiting for natural sunlight and photog'ing/bloggin' in-the-same-day.  Believe me, I don't like that method.  It's the photog'ing and bloggin' that takes the most time!  This is when I do tell you that I'm having a TON of fun.  I've been keeping up with the commenting but don't ask me about any of my holiday prep!

Okay, so here's one of today's card which was thoroughly inspired by my friend, Michele Ferguson.


Yup, that mitten!  I forgot that I have the Spellbinders Mittens, which I'm learning has been discontinued.  Oh, that's a shame because it's quite fun.  Oh boy, I love that green felt...but I probably didn't have to tell you that.  The star has been cut from another Spellbinders set in hot pink felt.  

The SugarPea Designs Coffee To Go Cup has been cut with red felt and I upcycled a Starbucks Coffee Sleeve.  The sentiment, Coffee & Pretty Things, is from the Latina Crafter.  All the felt is from Impress.


My colors have been inspired by Color Throwdown:


A Big Shout out to these Super Sponsors:

I have a little giveaway today.  When the Latina Crafter had their last sale, I stocked up on giveaways.  Today, it's the Coffee & Pretty Things stamp set!


Just leave me a comment by Sunday, December 18th at 3 pm pacific!  I'll announce my winner the following day!

Just a reminder that we'll be celebrating International Tea Day over on the Coffee Loving Cardmaker's blog tomorrow!
