2015 Winter/Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!


Today is the Day!  It is the start of the 2015 Winter/Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  This time around there’s a fun twist:

December 13th: National Cocoa Day
December 15th: International Tea Day

We have always encouraged Cocoa and Tea projects in the hops but how lucky are we that the days fall right during the hop?!  We’ll be doing special FLASH prizes on those days so be sure to link up before 5 pm on those respective days for a chance to win!

All the details are on the the Coffee Loving Cardmakers post HERE.

Let’s get to it, shall we?

I’ve collected several new stamp sets since Black Friday, this is one of them, Concord & 9th’s, Let’s Chat:

cardstock:  stampin’ up gumball green, strathmore watercolor  stamps:  concord & 9th/let’s chat, clearly kelly’s fa la la la la  ink:  ranger archival black  other:  kuretake gansai tambi

We’re so pleased to welcome Concord & 9th to the Coffee Lover’s Blog Hops!  They are just one of our new Super Sponsors!

In keeping with the Winter/Holiday theme, I used Kelly’s Fa La La La La by Hero Arts for the sentiment.  The coffee cup was colored using Kuretake Gansai Tambi.  Chuckling that my saucer is, well, a bit saucy, but hey, it gives it a whimsical lookโ™ก

That’s it for me today…well, not really, lots to do in the background of the hop but lovin’ every moment!
