2015 Winter/Holidays Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!


The Coffee Bloghop is here!  The Coffee Bloghop is here!  It's like Christmas for me and this week is gonna be a whirlwind.  You really need to check out this hop... so many entries... so much fun... so many prizes... and so many fantastic ideas and artwork!!
 
The hop went live this morning ... I wore my coffee pajamas to bed last night (after twirling around three times in my closet) and hoping that the coffee fairies would bring me good ideas so I could actually start and finish a card this morning before I'm off to work.. you know... Bloghop Morning... the most magical time of the year.  And it worked!!!
 
 
My first project I'm entering into the Holiday Coffee Lovers Bloghop and the Stamplorations Caseplorations challenge, and the Choux Choux Paper Arts Christmas/Winter Challenge.  I've provided you links on each of these names so you can check them out and play along!  You can win prizes for commenting and prizes for playing... too much fun in one... well, three places!  I also plan on being a super commentor for the Coffee Lovers Bloghop... more chances to win prizes and what the heck... SPREAD THE LOVE!!
 
The oh so cute sentiment is from the Stamplorations set created by Becca Cruger, Caffeinated Christmas.  I used White Pines blue B&T paper again for the background and Kraft, and various colors of blue cardstock.  The cups are some of the many I cut from Artistry last week.  I just cut a bunch so you'll probably see them at least a couple more times.  I used a white cutout, embossed it with Mom's Christmas Sweater embossing folder, colored and glittered the top.  I decided for the heart cutout, I'd add a pop of red.  My favorite part is the snowflake background.  I covered my snowflake embossing folder in versamark (on the reverse side.. I'm gonna try one the other way to see if it looks much different); added some Wow snowflake embossing powder that I got from one of the great Blog Hop sponsors (there are many!) and heated it and I LOVE the way it looks... what can I say.. I'm a glitter gal.  My husband this morning: "Wow!  There's a lot of glitter on the table"... :)

 
Well, I'll be back with more.  I'm going to try to post one a day during the hop... not sure if it will be possible, but we'll see.  I think I'll be in my coffee pajamas a lot this week ... lol!  Don't forget to check these out!  Click on the links above to get to each one.
