Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Final Day!



I can't believe it, today is the final day of the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  As I type out this post, there are 748 linkies!  This Paper Crafting Community is awesome...both the Sponsors + all the Paper Crafters!

Chaitali, my partner in crime coffee, reminded me that yesterday (National Coffee Day) it was 2 years ago when we had our very first hop!  2 years?!  WOW.

It's truly a labor of coffee love...all the logistics and communication...all the work is so worth it because everyone enjoys it as much as I do!  

So I give you my final card for the hop:


So, I might have a 'couple' coffee, tea + cocoa sets/products.  It tends to grow a lot during the hop...I'm easily enabled and with so much fantastic inspiration...how can I resist?

So today's card uses Super Sponsor Newton's Nook  - Falling for You, available at Super Sponsor The Heart Desires!  I did some masking, I combined Ken Oliver Color Bursts and Zig Clean Color Markers.  

The paper is by Simple Stories and the Scallop Frame dies are from Pretty Pink Posh - another Super Sponsor!

My card was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches:


Have you linked up yet?!  Remember we have some awesome FLASH prizes...to be able for today's wave, you'll need to upload your project by 5 pm pacific!

Yes, I remember the first hop! The hops have come a long way since then! Back then, it was all so new - I remember not having very many coffee or tea stamps! So grateful for all the effort and time you put into these hops, Amy. You are right - so many people enjoy it! Me included! Your card is gorgeous - love, love, love this Newton's Nook stamp! Beautiful Color Burst background as well!

Oh I love the white dishes. Is the scalloped one available? I have white milk glass on my mantle right now. But that's not why I am here. Want to say thanks for this neat idea of a blog. No thing much keeps me away from my coffee. ..in summer I just ice it. I like your card style too.
