2017 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and Giveaway!

It's time for the winter edition of our favorite blog hop--the 2017 Winter
Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! I believe I missed the last hop--too much traveling!--
but I loved seeing all the coffee, tea, and cocoa inspiration and I managed
to put together a card for this season.


I colored up the Cozy Lady by Brandi Kincaid for Ellen Hutson and decided to
mask off a bunch of take out coffee cups for her to hold. Looks a little dangerous,
I agree, and when I shared a pic on Instagram, some folks offered to help her
hold some! (Thanks, Ivy!)


* * *

And in honor of the hop, I have a small giveaway of coffee related goodies
for one lucky commenter. These are duplicates that I bought and what better
time to share them than with coffee lovin' friends.


(Prize package includes: Lawn Fawn Pumpkin Spice and matching Lawn Cuts
Unity Stamps Fall to Go, Neat and Tangled Warm Wishes and Doodlebug Designs
  Latte Love Shape Sprinkles)

Just tell me if you're a coffee, tea, or cocoa lover--or all three! The deadline
to comment is the last day of the hop, December 15th, and I'll announce the
winner a few days after that. One comment per person, please! 😘

I just realized that my card has more of a "fall" theme than a winter one,
probably because I colored her before Thanksgiving. Oopsie!

I'm off to peruse the entries! Big thanks to Amy and her crew for another
successful hop that brings us together, one cup at a time! 🍵☕

(Note: Comments are closed, thank you for stopping by during the hop!)

  7. Wow, so much careful detail on your card. You did such a good job with masking the coffee cups. And your coloring on her clothes is amazing especially the plaid. I don't even know how you can see all the lines on the plaid to color with such detail.

  8. I love your use of the stamps and the "fall" colors are my favorite. I'm a tea drinker but my husband is a coffee drinker so since there is just the two of us we each have our own drawer with lots of different kinds of our favorites to fix. I make a pot of tea but my husband makes one cup of coffee at a time. We both have hot chocolate in the evenings when it is cold. Thanks for sharing your card making abilities and your extra stamps!

  21. Aww...this is so pretty! I love a good cup of hot cocoa, as well as coffee. Sometimes I'll drink tea but I have to be in the mood for it. ;)

  22. I just got this stamp set, literally yesterday! I love the colors you used for this card, and love that she carries several take out coffee cups! Loooove Coffeeeee! I thought you would say you colored in this color "cuz Hawaii doesn't have winter". LOL I once lived in Hawaii :) But then, it doesn't have fall either. Same as Guam, where I currently reside. Happy holidays, and oh yea, I drink all those, coffee, tea & hot cocoa. But I NEED coffee in the morning for sure, to be able to function! LOL
