Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Today’s post is jam packed with so many things — a coffee themed card, some fabulous freebies with instructions on how to enter to win, links to check out TONS of beautiful coffee themed projects, and an invitation for YOU to play along!


And it all circles around the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop today.

I made a card to share and have some blog candy – two actually (blog candy), read further down for details.

And we hope YOU play along, too.

We’ll start with my card and show the prizes/links at the end.


Here’s my card for the hop.

Paper: On This Day by Kaisercraft

Bazzill Mirror Cardstock – Gold; SU Very Vanilla Cardstock

Dies: Spellbinders Celebrations Pierced Rectangles

Spellbinders Die D-Lites Celebrations Two

Ink, etc: VersaMark Watermark Ink; Super Fine Embossing Powder – Gold;

Zig Painty Pen Chisel Tip Marker – Gold

Ribbon: May Arts String Leaves – Gold; May Arts Metallic String – Gold

Here’s a close up of this gorgeous stamp – Coffee Cup.

This is totally separate from the above.


To try to win this prize, just comment on this post and make sure you leave contact info so I can easily reach the winner. So often people win, but we have no way to reach them, and they never come back to look again, so they don’t know they won, in which case we move on and pick another.

Comments will close on Sunday, Dec 14 at Midnight Pacific Time (3 am EST Monday) with the winner announced on Monday morning.

This prize consists of a 2015 Coffee Calendar by Lang – 14 x 12.

PLUS a treasure trove of ribbon.

These ribbons are all in miscellaneous lengths and will NOT be neatly wrapped. They’ll come to you just as you see them here.

You can have the fun of going through them to get them organized to your liking!


REMEMBER: $3.95 shipping on ALL US orders extended!!! Details here.

Most recent mark-downs include ALL Christmas paper and Christmas stamps, and so much more!
