2015 Fall Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop!

Well, it turns out I AM alive, after all, and I am still making cards...

I am joining the Fall Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop for their Autumn madness!

And so, sans ado,
I made this--

I began with the "thankful" die cut, which has two, count them, TWO colors of glitter coating the bottoms. I do love me my sparkle!
I wanted the diecut and the coffee cups to be the stars of this card, so the rest went dark, dark brown.
Coffee cups are stamped on the background, and leaf diecuts were passed through some embossing folders add some texture.

My Lawn Fawn "Love you a Latte" stamps and dies in autumnal colors indicate almost all of what I am truly grateful for--COFFEE! (I DID manage to get a "for you" on the inside of the card. Can't have my recipient thinking I'm thankful ONLY for coffee....)

Right at the end, I felt the need for some extra shine, so I water brushed some Delicata golden glitz ink on many of the surfaces. I'm so happy so much of it actually photographed!

So happy to be back with the Coffee Lovers, and I'm loving seeing SO MUCH wonderful work out there!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
All Best-
