2018 Fall | Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Final Day + Project

Today wraps up the 2018 Fall  |  Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  We're still going strong and at last look, there were 1,016 links!  I have my final project to share, it features a bunch of Lawn Fawn goodies!  I should add my disclaimer now, I've been up since 1:30 am, it is now almost 10:00 am.  Please excuse any typos or nonsensical jargon.

True story, I 'misplaced' the STAMPtember collaboration set with Lawn Fawn, Nutty or Nice? for Simon Says Stamp.  I may have been casually looking for it for a couple of months...LOL.  I literally stumbled upon it YESTERDAY.  Just in time for the hop.  I combined the following sets:

STAMPtember collaboration set with Lawn Fawn, Nutty or Nice? for Simon Says Stamp
Thanks a Latte
Ready, Set, Snow
Yet, Set, Go
Love You a Latte
Stitched Mountain Borders
Scalloped Rectangle Stackables
Simple Stitched Hillside Borders
Leafy Tree Background:  Portrait
Perfectly Plaid :  Christmas 6x6
Knock on Wood 6x6
Knit Picky 6x6
Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink

I stamp up a bunch of images and try to cram as many as possible in my scenery.  I kept to an overall red + green color palette.  TRUTH:  When I initially finished my card, I was looking at it and realized it was missing something.  Um yeah, coffee.

That my friends is how tired I am right now...LOL.  Let me chat about my scenery for a bit.  I luckily had that Knock On Wood Mountain already die cut.  The background is compliments of Color Bursts.  I love those things, it looks different every time.  The squirrel in the front row cracks me's like she's trying to pass as a snow person.  The little snow person is trying to be taller than the others so she's sitting in a coffee cup, okay a bit of a stretch but if you knew me, I'd try that myself.

Surprise Surprise, I'm linking up to the Lawn Fawnatics:  Winter Holiday challenge:

So I should really power through and complete 2 projects but I just can' to power nap.  I'll be back later for the Friday Night FLASH Party.  Remember to link up your projects by 3 pm pacific to be eligible!

So cute...and so funny we crafters get wrapped up in our design, we sometimes misplace things or lose focus. Know you are not alone. Great design. Love the snowman in the cup. Thanks again for all you do and for over 1 thousand new crafty friends and inspiration!

Super cute Amy... You sound like me, since moving a few things have been misplaced... I find it takes me longer to find something than it is to make the card and I am usually very very organized. So glad you found the set ... and just in time... Did you happen to find anything else on your journey? Looks like you have lots of coffee friends... :)
