Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day One: Autumn Wishes

post 1 of 2…click here for the Papertrey Ink September Blog Hop
Today is the day!  I can’t believe that it is the start of the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  The many hours of work behind the scenes makes these hops truly worthwhile.  I’m always so amazed at the creativity and how awesome everyone is!

Before I get to my project, I wanted to do a couple shout outs.  First, I wanted to thank Chaitali.  If it wasn’t for her, we wouldn’t have a blog or a Facebook Group.  She’s the techie behind everything.  The very first hop that started a year ago, was on her blog!

Since Chaitali is sitting this hop out, I reached out to my fabulous friend, Kimberly Wiener.  She has this magnificent “Can-Do” attitude that is such a wonderful personality trait that she rocks.  The Hop graphic is a collaboration between Chaitali & Kimberly.

Debra Davison has agreed to be, the coffee princess.  She’s ‘subbing’ for me when I step away from Coffee Central.  Debra is always popping into the FB group and is extremely helpful.

If you don’t know yet, we have 42 Super Sponsors…our Summer Hop had 34 Super Sponsors.  I know, right?! So fun….everyone is eligible for prizes, you just need to link up a newly created Fall Themed Coffee, Tea &/or Cocoa project!

So let’s get started, shall we?
cardstock:  recollections/110/white  paper:  pebbles/harvest  stamps:  precious remembrance fall colors/coffee love  ink:  ranger archival black, distress ink ripe persimmon/spiced marmalade  other:  mama elephant/basic cut 
Fall, my most favorite season of the year.  We’ve been having a great September, it’s been cooling down, thankfully,  since we had a super hot summer in the pacific northwest.

I combined 2 stamp sets from Precious Remembrance, Coffee Love + Fall Colors.  I stamped the To Go cup in Ranger Archival Black, masked it off and stamped the falling leaves in distress ink.

I kept the overall design pretty clean so that the leaves and the coffee cup are the star of the show!

Big thank you for stoppin’ by!!!  I’m so looking forward to seeing all of the projects!
