  1. amy you've done it again … I LOve your card, and here is yet another set I might just have to add to my ever growing amy-inspired list!

  2. What a fabulous holiday card to send to your coffee klatch! Love it! And that background paper is so how I feel about winter!

  3. Coffee. How cute this is. I love it. As long as it has ¼ cream and ¼ sugar. The blue cups are great and give this card a nice pop.

  4. Your card design is perfect to send to members of my coffee klatch. The cover pot is adorable and the layout great. The spot of color used is great!

  5. The coffee stamp set makes a perfect Christmas card. Love how versatile stamps can be.

  6. I really like the way you used coffee stamps for this Christmas card. Extremely clever idea.

  7. Adorable card! Love the idea of a coffee-themed Christmas card, perhaps with a gift card to my favorite shop included!

  8. I don't even drink coffee but I just love making these cards! My girls love coffee though so that's a great excuse to send them a little coffee love �� Great card that I will be casing!

  9. Thank you, Amy for sharing. That is such a great idea to invite guests over for Christmas. Who doesn't enjoy coffee and of course Christmas treats to go along.

  10. This card is fantastic!:)
    And this set is perfect for a coffee lover like me !!!
    Thank you for the inspiration!

  11. Love the coffee theme!!! I am sipping some right now. 🙂

  12. What a great way to incorporate the Altenew stamps into the holiday spirit. During the holiday season, I love the time spent with family and friends sitting around the table while enjoying a cup of coffee!

  13. "Baby, it's cold outside," but certainly warmed with the fresh pot of coffee. I can smell the warmth now through your card!

  14. Completely x absolutely x totally love your card, Amy! Kicking myself for not ordering this earlier…maybe Santa will bring one my way (I've been nice, sorta kinda *grin*). You've sent my festive spirit soaring!

  15. What a great card Amy. So appropriate for this time of the year, very warm and comforting!

  16. oh, how fantastic. love the coffee 'theme'. the stacked images look awesome. great partial background amy.

  17. Oh Amy!! This card is GENIUS!! I love the fun way you did the background, the colors you chose, everything. Just fabulous!!

  18. I would not have thought of using a coffee pot and coffee cups and saucers for a Christmas card. That's called thinking out of the box and boy did you! My mom loves hot coffee in the winter. We live in CT so it gets cold in the winter. Right now it's snowing. She would like this card but she would say it doesn't remind her of Christmas. I think it does or at least winter anyway. My sister loves hot chocolate but the natural kind, not the kind you can buy in the stores that are loaded with chemicals. My sister would love this as a birthday card. Can we stick a candle in the cups or the pot? LOL

  19. What a great card for the coffee lover! That image you chose is just fabulous and the colours are striking. Love it!!

  20. Super fun card! It is -31 cold here this morning! Definitely matches my feelings of a cup of hot coffee !

  21. Of COURSE yours is coffee-themed! 🙂 This is awesome! I love the words on the bottom of the card, too – so fun!

  22. Love how you have come up with a fun and unique holiday card design, love it. Have a lovely day. Cheers Donna Z

  23. Love the image of the hot coffee with all those cold words!! Brr….I feel cold now, but after seeing that nice coffee pot I am warming back up! Great card!

  24. Hi Amy!!! This is so cute – I love the blue plates and that cool background!! Hope all is well with you – been too crazy over here. 🙁

  28. Amy I love your card!! It's so much fun 😊 And I love hat it's non traditional but perfect for the holidays at the same time.
