Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day 7

Thursday, December 6, 2018

Hi friends! It's Day 7 of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and I'm back with another coffee loving card. This is sort of a self portrait of me and my coffee every morning after the boys leave for school. It's my time to breathe deep and enjoy the silence and solitude for a few moments before tackling my to do list for the day! Sometimes it lasts two whole cups long. Those are GOOD days. 😊 Yesterday I had a sick boy at home, so this solitude didn't happen. Today I made up for it with two cups, and boy did I enjoy every moment!


I used a mix of a few Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps to create this card.  I started, as the sentiment states, by stamping the coffee cup from Jesus & Coffee.  Next I started building my girl  using the Girl Power set. I love v-necks and so she had to have a v-neck. I added some extra fly aways when I colored her hair, because let's face it, that's REAL life! 😄


Next I masked off the coffee cup and stamped some greenery from the Christmas Botanicals set below it. Now this is NOT real life, but I do have a beautiful table runner with holly and poinsettias on it, so I took a little poetic license. To finish off the scene, I sketched in a couple lines to indicate where the table was and  some arm separation.  Everything is colored with Copic markers and then I cut it out with a stitched rectangle die cut and matted skewed just a bit on a black stitched rectangle die cut.  I grounded the image with a few Decorative Edge Fancy die cuts glued together for thickness, then finished off with a sentiment from Jesus & Coffee and a flower from Christmas Botanicals.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fantastic day. There's still time to play along and have a chance at winning some spectacular prizes along the hop. Just create a coffee/tea or cocoa themed fall or winter creation and link it up over on the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop official post before the deadline on Friday afternoon (Dec. 7).

  6. I so understand those moments, Julee. Two boys are a handful, I sometimes don't understand where you find the time to make so many beautiful cards! Yeah for coffee.
