[12.9.16] for the love of COFFEE…

It has been a long, long time since I’ve had the pleasure of participating in the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I just had to make it happen this time. There is nothing I love more than combining my love for coffee and cards. Unity Stamp Company is a super sponsor and I’m proud to be using some of their stamps for my project today.


I’m finished with my Christmas cards. *gasp* I can’t believe it and they are actually going to be mailed out in time. You’d think I had my stuff together this year. Haha. Iย just know I’m going to need a couple thank you cards and this blog hop theme was the perfect reason to get ahead on that as well. Thank you for the swift kick in the pants to get in gear.

In case you were wondering, this cuppa love holds my favorite Starbucks holiday drink – A Soy Caramel Brulee Latte. And then it is all wrapped up in a sweater… if this cup had boots it would contain 3 of my favorite winter things. Haha. I just love this sweater wrapped mug from the 9/15 kit of the month – Our Hearts to Yours. I colored it with Copic markers, fussy cut it out and then popped it up on the card with a little string bow. The sentiment is from the same kit and just perfect for holiday thank you cards, don’tcha think?

Also, these are 3 x 5.5 inch cards. Just too stinking cute and use up my 6×6 papers perfectly. I love this size for cards I know won’t need an envelope. I just leave them for people or drop them off as is. Just a quickie kinda card. Not so formal, but oh so cute.

Are you interested in hopping too? You can! It is tons of fun too. You can link up HERE till December 16th. Thank you for stopping by, I appreciate the visit. May your day be as warm and comforting as your favorite beverage. Hugs.
