A Hug in a Mug ....

.... Hello again!  That title kinda tells you how I feel about my morning cup of coffee!  My family will tell you I'm addicted - maybe!  I couldn't possibly say :) :)  So I'm pleased that I finally managed to make a card to join in with the 2015 Fall - Coffee Lovers Blog Hop:

Stamps: Reverse Confetti - For the Love of Latte, Caffeinated Cups; Verve - Better With You
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Baked Brown Sugar; Kaleidacolor - Creole Spice
Dies: Reverse Confetti - Caffeinated Cups
Accessories: Cream & White Lustre Card; SU Card - Baked Brown Sugar; Glitter; Copic Markers


I based my card on this week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches - FMS#206.  I got my new coffee stamps earlier this week and am really pleased to be inking them up.  I've got lots of coffee sets, but you can't have too many!  I stamped the cup on white card, coloured it with Copic markers, cut it out with the matching die and added some glitter to the coffee foam.  I really like the pretty cup holder - which I stamped in autumnal colours.  I used the super coffee stains from my Verve set and added rings to the card base (well, you nearly always have stains on the desk).  I finished the front with a sentiment.  I stamped the word coffee on some scrap card, fussy cut it out and attached it with dimensional gel.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of light brown card, and on the cream panel added a fun sentiment!

I have got a huge pile of ironing waiting for me upstairs - so I suppose rather than having fun in my craft room, I'd better get it done!  That's all for now.  See you tomorrow.

Edited to add:  I've just uploaded my card to the Coffee Blog Hop - I got number 543 - good to know that I'm not the only coffee addict about !!
