Happy Birthday and 2016 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop personal wrap up



Coffee hangover?  Maybe, no not really.  If there is one design I never tire of, it is coffee.  I'm super happy to announce that the 2016 Winter Coffee Lovers blog hop was a big success!  I'm always anxious about it since December is a busy month for everyone.  You can find out all the deets, including all the winners over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog later this afternoon (it's live now!).  It's a mega post that I need to start writing!

For now, I do have a card to share:


Yesterday we went to the birthday party for a SWEET 21 year old.  I should have made her card more of a party theme, maybe martini glasses and such but I'm still on the coffee theme💚.  I bought the PTI Cozy Christmas set after seeing Kathy's cards HERE and HERE.  I know, right?!  She's pretty inspirational!  My color palette is compliments of an older Color Throwdown.  The birthday label is by Jillibean.

I added the Essentials by Ellen Wreath to make it a bit more feminine.  The paper is Basic Grey Juniper Berry.

Okay, so I'm going to leave you with all my entries for this hop.  I had so many more ideas but seriously, not enough hours in the day!





BIG thank you to all the Super/FLASH Sponsors and all the wonderful creative people that either linked up or were cheerleaders.  The challenging logistics of the hops are ALWAYS so worthwhile when I visit all the entries and read their posts and soak up all the inspiration.  There are all the Super Supporters that take the time to comment and are active in the FB group.  I feel so lucky to be part of this awesome community💚

  1. Amy - you are AMAZING!!! Your card round-up blows me away and I'm so sorry I couldn't stop by and participate, much less comment. :-(

    Your 21st birthday card is just so sweet with the colors you chose and that thermos set is to die for! I have it on my wish list, but haven't been able to purchase it yet for myself. I especially like how you combined it with the wreath to make it more feminine. I have taken that wreath in and out of my shopping cart at EH so many times.
