Coffee Lovers Blog Hop


Happy International Coffee Day!!  What's not to love about a steaming cup of joe?! I'm so happy to participate in today's Coffee Lover's Blog Hop along with about a gazillion other crafty peeps who share a "warm affection" for the caffeinated karma coffee provides.




Here's my ode to joe -- an Art Impressions favorite of mine -- Cathy Caffeine! I stamped her on a To Go cup-shaped card front made on my Silhouette Cameo and just smudged the edges with some Distress Inks in Shabby Shutters and Tea Dye to give the cup a well loved look.  Then I had to sparkle up the HOT JAVA logo with some Stickles.

Caution: the beverage you're about to enjoy is HOT...thank you very much! I love coffee, I prefer it simple and hot. While I completely enjoy trying specialties from trendy coffee shops, I'm happy with a simple brew (and even use my Keurig frequently - with Dunkin Donuts or Timothy's German Chocolate Cake pods)  :-)

There are loads of giveaways today and check out these awesome sponsors:



Be sure and check out all the fabulous coffee themed creations on the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop...thanks Chaitali and Amy!

  3. OMG, I got to get a hold of this AI stamp. Your card is totally awesome! I am a bit sad I did not know about this blog hop in advance. Happy coffee drinking day to you and all java lovers. Finishing my second cup with a piece of home baked zucchini bread made with our own zucchini. Cheers!
