Santa's Little Helper and a Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hi friends! It's time for the Winter 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  If you've been following me for a while you know how much I love these hops. As hubby calls it, coffee is my "pinnacle drink". I like tea and hot chocolate and wassail, too, but given a choice, my coffee mug would never be empty!


And I love designing coffee images about as much as I love drinking it! So in honor of the hop I produced another digital set that released this morning. I wanted a really big mug of coffee that said Santa's little helper, since with everyone in the house feeling sick I'm living on coffee and Christmas cheer right now.

My card uses the cup from the new Running on Cheer DIGITAL Set, which I printed on my laser printer, then masked off the top and sponged salty ocean and faded jeans distress oxide inks to color.  The papers and the tag are from the Very Merry line by Carta Bella. I fell in love with this collection and bought it all this year!  Love this little reindeer tag from the ephemera pack.

I rounded the corners of my papers, added a silver bow and a wooden snowflake covered with glitter drops and was done.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! If you want to play along in the hop, just make a new holiday themed coffee/tea/or cocoa card and link it up to the official hop post before next Friday. You have to play to win, but there are so many wonderful prizes from the Super Sponsors, including a little Verve!
