Welcome to the Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge #21! For December our challenge is Christmas/Winter/Holiday! Here's how I was inpired:
So, surprise... there is a coffee/cocoa element to my card!..lol! You'll find out why in just a bit if you don't already know.
But you should also know that we are collaborating again with the ladies over at Double Trouble Challenges! Double Trouble is a fun challenge blog that likes to get together with other challenges and support each other. You get chances to win a very thoughtful and cool prize and the more challenge elements you meet the more chances you get! The Challenge over at Double Trouble during our collaboration is Embossing... any kind! There is also a fun twist over there which is Let It Snow... add anything snow for an extra chance to win! AND as if you didn't know, the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is going on right now and at Double Trouble, if you also play along over there by adding a Coffee, Cocoa, or Tea element to your creation, you not only can link up at Coffee Lovers, but you get an extra chance to win at Double Trouble! I should have plenty of chances with my card because I've added it all!
I started by coloring this gorgeous and nostalgic image from the Snuggle Down stamp set from Power Poppy Stamps over Thanksgiving weekend. I just LOVE how cozy it feels and it is perfect with that beautiful pack of retired CTMH paper, Jack. If I could get my hands on another pack, I would... awesome awesome papers in that one. I cut my rectangle layers using the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies from Kat Scrappiness and the banners were cut using the Fishtail Banners from MFT. And the double fishtail is from the Flag Banner Dies from Craftin Desert Divas.. another one of my most used sets! And then there are the awesome glittery snowflakes cut from some glitter paper from Lawn Fawn. Take Note - Embossed Sentiment, Snowflakes, Coffee and Cocoa. Right?? How easy was that?!
I hope you enjoyed your stop today and I hope you'll play along with us over at Three Amigos as well as check out what is going on over at Double Trouble and The Coffee Lover's Blog Hop! Be sure to hop on over to Donna and Susan's place and check out what they've created too!
I'm also playing along over at the Fall/Winter 2018 Coffee Lover's Blog Hop, Choux Choux Paper Art's Christmas/Winter Visions of Sugarplums Challenge, Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge which is Anything Goes, and Cupcake Inspirations with a theme of Holiday!
Be sure to come back soon... I'll be sharing all things coffee, tea and cocoa all week long!
