Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

It's here, it's here, it's here! And of course, Mr. Mojo decided to take a break after yesterday morning, the little stinker! But I coaxed and cajoled, and came up with a little something -- finally! Big thanks to Amy, and an incredible list of sponsors. Be sure to link up and drink up! Check out all the details here: 2015 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.




What I had in mind, and what I made are two completely different things. Only two elements carried throughout the design; the die, and the designer paper...go figure. I will admit that I'm finding the end product rather cute. It's going to a friend whom I meet for coffee once a month. She'll get a kick out of it.  Hopefully, Mr. Mojo will cooperate much more in the next few days...yeah, like that'll happen!


Started with a large light blue scrap for a base, then used some hoarded saved LF dp for the top and bottom edges, cut with ME scallop die. A PTI pieced together and masked off sentiment on the top half, and my NBUS Verve coffee die that I won from the last hop (woohoo!!). I cut the coffee cup with my Cameo, and the pumpkin face too, which I used as a stencil with some Versafine black ink. Pumpkin Spice Latte, anyone? (Me, I'll stick to my Caramel Macchiato thanks...) So I'm going to go and hop along now, and maybe see if I can find any spare brain cells lying around with which to make another card. Happy dances everyone!

I would love to get together for coffee, as we did back in July! Words can't express how treasured those memories are; neither can they tell you how deeply I miss you! Plotting and scheming a return!! Your jack o'lantern mug and the coffee die: inviting to the nth degree!
