A Christmas Story?

After all the coffee hop fun I took a few days off.  It was so much fun but sheesh, I don't know how Amy and the gals do that 4X per year!  What an amazing crew eh!?
 
So picking up where I left off, wanted to share another fun card with you:
 

For some reason this sweet guy from the greeting farm reminds me of the little bundled up boy in the movie A Christmas Story.  Maybe it is that old fashioned looking jacket/outfit.  It is really cute!  So I colored this guy with my Copics and I just love the blue and green palette.  The background paper is from Doodlebug Designs, so bright and cheery.  I used the Lawn Fawn polaroid die cut and a LF greeting as well.  The snowflakes are from Pretty Pink Posh.  He is a darling kiddo don’t you think?!


Thank you so much for visiting me today, it makes my heart sing!

International Tea Day


Today is the last day of the Coffee Hop- sniffle!  But it has been OH SO MUCH FUN!  And for one last amazing send off on this final day we are celebrating International Tea Day.  Yay!  I have a fun card to share with you in celebration: 




Does this make you feel like you are looking out the window gazing at a wonderful winter scene? I hope so, because that is the idea.  I started with the evergreen bough from Impression Obsession.  I then cut the little red bird from a PTI die.  The window, cut into woodgrain paper is from MFT.  The snowy paper behind it is from Lawn Fawn.  Next comes the tea cup and accessories from Echo Park.  I cut the cup it all from Crafter's Companion Luxury Cardstock with the exception of the steam, which is cut from vellum.  Finally, the border die is from Gina Marie.

Head on over to the Coffee Lovers blog to see what other amazing creations the DT has.

Thanks for the visit!

Holiday Hugs!



Can you believe there are only two days left in the Coffee Hop?  I can't, it has really flown by.  BUt there has been so much fun and so much inspiration.  


Today I ave this card featuring one of my most favorite stamps from MFT.  He was fun to color as a Sasquatch this time around.  I paper pieced the scraf from the some fun DP.  The background DP is cut using Avery Elle and PTI dies.  Love the little felt trees picked up from my local craft store.  The sentiment is from WPlus9.  

Hope you are getting lots of inspiration!

National Cocoa Day

Who's ready for some Cocoa?! Visualize me raising my hand...  It's National Cocoa Day so we should ALLbe ready I think.  The next uestion is what is your preference, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, something else?  Marshmallows or not?  Me, I am a milk chocolate girl with marshmallows. 


Now if you are a mallow lover like me, then this is a good gift for you.



This little cutie was made by simply purchasing a small jar from my local craft store and filling with marshmallows.  The penguin is vinyl, which you could make with your die cutting machine.  I coupled it with some Starbucks Cocoa and finished it with a tag that I die cut form Lawn Fawn.  Hard to see but I also stamped some blue snowflakes and Happy Holiday's Sentiment (also LF) and tied it up using some fun red twine.

Do head on over to the Coffee Lover's blog to see what else is in store for today!

Coffee- My Merry Maker



This hop has been so fun so far.  I am doing my best to get around and comment as much as possible.  If only I didn't have to work... then I would comment on them all!  I guess I have to support my craft supply habit somehow. 


There are soooo many fun elements in this card that I am not sure I can name them all.  Where shall I start?!  OK, the cups are from Honey Bee stamps, I used a masking technique to layer them and used the Lawn Fawn Quinn's ABCs inside the cups.  I colored them with my Copics.  The Christmas sentiment s from Walter and Winnie, I cut it twice, in foam and sparkly paper and off set them to allow for that shadow-like look.  The DP is also Lawn Fawn.  The snowflakes are from Simon Says Stamp and cut into Luxury Cardstock from Crafter's Companion.  I am not sure if the design in my head quite played out on paper, but it is still fun.

OK, thanks for the visit and and enjoy more of the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop.

Still Hoppin?




Hey there!  Are you still getting your Winter Coffee Lover's hop on?  I am!


If you know me, you know I love all things Yeti or Sasquatch, and this is one of my favorite stamps sets by MFT>  I love this guy and he is fun to color in so many ways.  This cute dude is all snuggled up with his cup of Cocoa and his scarf.  I really love this color combo to.  The red paper is embossed with a SU! embossing folder and the DP panel is cut out using and Avery Elle die. 

So, I know you are Yeti for coffee and crafts, but are you Yeti for Christmas? 

Thanks for your visit!

Cup of Cheer!


The weekends always go too fast don't they?  I can't really complain though, I got to see lots of my crafty friends yesterday for a fun gathering inclusive of cardmaking, treats, gifts and lots of laughter.  It was so much fun, thank you t the gracious host/hostess for letting us use their home.  

Among the treats were coffee cups, cookies and more  So this card is the perfect follow up to yesterday. 


These fun images are a compilation of stamps from some of my fave companies.  The cocoa is MFT, the plate is Lawn Fawn and that delectable gingerbread person is from Neat and Tangled.  Color them up, add some bright and fun Holiday papers and a bit of twine and BAM!  This would be perfect to go along with a batch of cookies for a neighbor or hostess gift.   i should have had this ready for our hostess yesterday!  

I hope you are enjoying the Winter Coffee Lover's Hop, I sure am!
