Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

 Hello Crafters!

I'm sure most of you know that today is National Coffee Day!

Whoo Hoo! My coffee of choice is Dunkin Donuts al lthe way. A large hot coffee with double cream and double sugar. Occasionally one of my guys will pick up a coffee for me. After giving one of them my order one morning he sent me this

Yeah that's pretty accurate. 

Anywho . . .why am I posting at 10:30 on a Monday night? Because today is the . . .




I love coffee so much I HAD to play along. I love these kind of hops. The gallery is so full. Who knew there were that may coffee stamps, dies, etc. It gives us all a chance to see some crafters maybe we've never "met" before. I can't wait to peruse the gallery!!

Unfortunately, I forgot the hop was today and I had none of my regular go to crafty stuff with me.

So I made a simple one layer card with what I had on hand. I'm not sure it's that different from what I would have made if I had ALL my stuff. Don't tell my husband he may try to tell me I don't need to buy anything else. Yeah, right. Like that's going to happen. Pfft. 

Kelly Latevola You and Your Big Dreams

I used a sweet digital stamp I bought ages ago from A Day For Daises. This little sweetheart is the Extra Cream Fairy

I printed her out on watercolor paper and then painted her in with distress inks. After she dried I outlined her with a black gel pen so she would be a little bolder. Add some stardust stickles. I have like 3 bottles laying around at any given time. I found this one in my trunk along with that spare black gel pen. 

I left off a sentiment because I didn't have one I liked to go with her. I think it's okay though. She's so pretty she can stand alone :) 

If you're not playing along but would still love to see the gallery you can head over to Chaitali's blog here. Specifically the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop post.  Thanks so much for hosting this Chaitali! Such a fun idea :) 

Thanks for dropping by!!

XoXo
